I think we can all feel it, my friends - Spring is just around the corner. And that means here at the Youth Farm Bible Camp office we are gearing up for another fun-filled, game-playing, song-singing summer.
Of course today, well today, I am sitting at my desk with cold toes and fingers dreaming of green grass and flip flops. The office is quiet and, while providing an ideal work environment for tick, tick, ticking lines off the to-do list, I am greatly awaiting the laughter and shouts of boisterous campers filling this yard again.
When the sun is gaining height in the sky and the animals are wandering in the petting zoo, the horses are saddled, canoes are softly lifted and lowered with subtle ripples at the waters edge, the climbing wall is standing at attention - the calm before the storm of excitement, accomplishment, and thrilling delight. It’s Skill Time! Campers move out from the chapel to cover all the corners and edges of this camp yard. They are learning new skills, building friendships, and developing bigger confidence. Drifting over the yard is the sound of fun - the sound of camp.
At camp kids are kids. Unplugged and outside. Active and exploring. Meeting new people - friends and mentors. The smell of the campfire, the feel of curly sheep wool, the sound of joyful singing, the sight of old friends reunited, and the taste of ripe red watermelon. This is camp. I cannot wait!
The anticipation is also building as we piece together the chapel curriculum - UnShakable! This summer our desire and prayer is for campers and staff to plant themselves firmly on Christ the Solid Cornerstone. Our Rock - Our Salvation - Our Defender. As the stories and scriptures come together we get more and more excited about the upcoming camp season and all that is in store.
