Kids’ Camp 2014

We followed Joseph from his father’s tent to prison to the palace of the Pharaoh.  The children from the village and orphanage thoroughly enjoyed their journey to Egypt.  We had 56 kids and young teens and great volunteers.  We had an amazing team from America–Rhonda, Tiffany, Regina, Amber and Kelvey–5 women with a heart for Jesus and children.  They were invaluable–they came prepared with skits, songs, and games for the kids.  Tiffany even taught the kids how to make slime!

The kids enjoyed going down to the river and all the games and especially the new trampoline!  They got creative building with Solo cups. They were engrossed as they heard the story of Joseph and all the events leading to reunification with his family. The kids learned their Bible verses through games and activities.  They prepared skits and pantomimes for the talent show and very much loved all the crafts.  A special thank you to New Harvest Church for providing all the craft projects.

The favorite hands down this year were the stuffed animals.  New Harvest prepared kits for the kids to make their own special animal.  Some of the kids were even able to sew them up themselves and they decorated them with yarn hair and ribbons.  New Harvest made extra kits so that each child would really be able to chose what they wanted to make.  The leaders made all the extras and sent them home with kids who had younger siblings.

The kids had two nights to show off their talent.  Teo taught the kids multiple funny skits.  The team even got involved with the cup song and a skit. I introduced the kids to one of my favorite pop songs from my childhood–1986’s “Walk like an Egyptian”.  Everyone ended up dancing to it.   Each team performed a spiritual skit.  This year, each one showed the consequence of sin and blessings that come from choosing Jesus! Each team received a trophy (thanks to New Harvest Church).

Camp was great this  year, exhausting, but great.Thank you to everyone who sponsored a camper, sent supplies, water bottles, flashlights, etc.  We couldn’t do it without you!   I’ll leave you with a few more pictures!
