The week got off to a great start with a Sunday evening meeting that introduced our directors Gary Foster and his assistant Jorge Wong. We also met our speaker, Mr. Nate Thomas and his cast of puppet characters! The theme for the week is the Beatitudes from the Sermon on the Mount so we are sure to see many bees! The campers were broken into sports teams and each had to make their own team flag.

Nate also began our early morning counselor meeting with some thoughts from Colossians 1, encouraging each of us to ‘walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing God, fruitful in every good work.” Later in the morning we were introduced to some of Nate’s characters that will help understand our lessons for the week found in Matthew 5.

Many of our favorite activities including the waterfront and archery were opened for the campers.
