Nothing says summer fun for our youth more than the annual Brandon Springs Summer Camp. Since this was the last weekend before the great Solar Eclipse of 2017 our theme was on Space, the Eclipse and God's presence and majestic creation in it all.

We are here and we are ready to roll …IMG_3251
Not so organized chaos ….

Not so fast … let's get all this STUFF inside and unpacked … but where does it all go?

Jessica (the other half of the Dynamic Duo) laying down the laws of the camp. When Jessica speaks the kids listen … well sorta.

After blessings it was time for us to enjoy our first meal … Spaghetti!

And all God's children said AMEN!

Time for the "A" Team to clean this place up. Such an efficient job of cleaning everything up got everyone outside in time to do a little canoeing in the twilight hours of the day.

Boys and Girls alike …. On with the lifejackets and paddles!! Your very life could depend on it.

Seeds that grow into lifelong friendships are planted here. Grow together and stay strong but never forget your love and support for each other and that God's presence is always with you.

Just way too much fun! No mishaps, collisions or parties overboard … least none that were unexpected :-)

What better way to cap off the first evening than with a Bonfire so everyone can have S'mores and sing a few songs around the camp fire … heck it was only about 90 degrees outside what's a few more degrees.
