Thank you to everyone for supporting Kids Camp with bringing your children, feeding us, looking after teams, praying for us... it was amazing! Below is a report to read and photos to enjoy.
Kids Camp 2017 – Being Transformed
Caterpillars, giant cocoons in the woods, glorious butterflies utterly transformed and no longer fearing the future! And then of course there was biscuit decorating, pot painting, fires, Ridgeway walk, the holey pole where team work is essential and the annual pudding game. We have had so much fun with your children and it has been an adventure for all of us. There was laughter with silly songs around the camp fire and times of contemplation reflecting on what God has been teaching us. We acted out Peter complete with a boat and waves, we learnt about Saul and even had a go at being blinded and then made pots and realised that God changed the woman at the well. Our wonderful cooks kept us fed and the team leaders cared for the children and created a fantastic atmosphere so that every nymph, caterpillar and tadpole felt loved. One highlight for me was seeing the children realise that under pressure carbon is transformed into diamonds. God is creating each child to be a diamond and they are utterly precious to him. Seeing each child take a diamond jewel to help them remember was a very powerful moment.
