We had a great day at camp today! The campers enjoyed some great discussions during the morning devotional time. The devotion was from Luke 4:1-11 and focused on how God’s people need to guard their hearts against sin. The memory verse for the day was, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it” (Proverbs 4:23).
Our youngest boys and girls played in the Nerf Zone today; our middle campers were on the “V-Swing,” and our oldest campers went canoeing. Our “Hebrew Moment” was substituted for a “Yiddish Moment” and our campers learned some of the most useful and funny Yiddish words. It’s great to hear the campers talking about how they’re “verklimpt” throughout the day.
In the afternoon we played a camp-wide game of “Wet and Wild Kickball,” in addition to our daily electives of Soccer, Arts & Crafts, Self-Defense Class, and Davidic Dance. Many campers spent their free time cooling off in the pool before we began our evening activities.
The Ruach continues to move during our worship times in Mishkan. We sang “Oceans,” “Undignified,” “Days of Elijah,” and then our message was taken from Nehemiah 5 with an emphasis on setting an example and loving our neighbor as we love ourselves.
We closed out the night with separate campfires for the boys and girls. Both groups sang worship, ate kosher s’mores, and spent some time sharing.
