Camps are the highlight of our year. At camp we break away from the chorus to hear a whisper.
Our kids have never missed a church camp. I hope they won't ever need to miss out. This year they were again so excited about the camp and school holidays. Though I'm not sure whether they were more excited about the holiday or the camp.
Camp 2005 was so special. This year Dinah and I were glad to be able to catch up with pastor PN. The Camp Team was again very nice to us. June, Christine and Steph took real good care of our family as we ministered. The moment June led us to our room, we were arrested by the spectacular sea view. The ledge by the glass window became Deb's reading corner. (Dan enjoyed the long hotel corridors where he could run) The room had a nice bath tub, not that we actually used it. There were luxurious bath robes, which we also enjoyed looking at.
A top-quality camp is hard to put together, but its all worth it. The opening night was awesome. I haven't remembered another camp opening night with the wow factor. The Italian classical duet was so refreshing. It had the crowd break out in spontaneous applause throughout the item. Then the entire 4 days we fed on Scriptures, worshipped God, exercised spiritual gifts and had lots of games, fun and family time. Talent Night on Saturday lived up to expectations. I thought it was absolutely creative, hilarious filled with good, clean fun. The closing day was very special. Everyone had a great time. We had it all.
Our life is made up of memories and experiences. My wife and I took photos with as many church members as we possibly could. Camp 2005 is one important memory for us.
