Bryce is at Bible camp this week, one of his favorite places. This year, however, he is at junior high camp which is quite a different experience than junior camp (grades 4-6). Campers are experiencing puberty and the pecking order is in effect.
Bonnie drove me up to camp last night for family night where we got to see Bryce, eat an awesome BBQ put on by their wonderful cook "Sweet Tea," and be entertained by all the cabins who put together skits that either summarized their week of camp or shared spiritual truths that they had learned from the week.
This week's speaker, "Zucchini", focused on technology and how it shapes our physical and spiritual lives. Based on the campers skits I think the topic was very relevant to our kids today and really challenging as well.
In the meadow....
Bryce and his cabin doing their skit.
Their leader, "Howitzer" was pretending to be the camp activities leader, "Sparks". Their skit focused on the activities of the week. It was funny, but I have a feeling that this was a tough, rambunctious, trouble-making group, at least that is what their skit implied. Bryce seemed a bit disappointed in his cabin. I am glad that in two weeks he will be going to camp again, but this time he will be going to the North West Grace Youth Camp in Auburn which is made up of all the youth from our sister churches in Oregon, Idaho, and Washington.
BTW....all that pool drama I talked about yesterday. Bonnie went over to the pool yesterday before heading up to camp. Her name was not on the schedule so I don't know what was going on yesterday. I don't think the manager has called at all to clarify with Bonnie, but Bonnie has done nothing wrong so I don't know what all that gossip was about her missing rotations, etc., There was no truth in it.
