My name is Patty! I am a staff member this week, and I am so excited to spend time with the boys this week, here’s a recap of our amazing day today:
We started the day spending time with Jesus, we dove into some scripture and explored the question, who is God? We had some really good conversations and wrote down our goals for the year! We discussed both long term goals and some short term goals that each teen can work on while they are here at camp.
We had the opportunity to complete some team building exercises, the “spider web”, and “all aboard! The teams came together and did amazing! It was hard for them all to connect at first, but towards the end they began to work together to get the task done. There were some normal frustrations but overall the boys were determined to complete the task at hand. They came out of these activities much closer as a team. Some of the bots even spent time learning to play chess!!
Today was the first day on horses! The boys learned how to tack, groom, and get on a horse today and even began to ride. Seeing the smiling faces and hearing the laughs was definitely a highlight of the day. After riding, the boys worked with the horse staff to feed the horses, this also served as a pretty cool experience. See Facebook for more pics of the boys on horses today!
They also fed the goats, rabbits, and even the pot belly pig names Annie.
We would love it if you guys would pray for another great day, and that the boys would connect not only with each other and the staff, but also with their father in Heaven.
