Faith Adventures Church Camp in Southwest Missouri held near Hermitage, MO, had another God-directed, challenging, exciting, and rewarding adventure July 29 through August 1. One hundred two children/youth and 45 adult volunteers, including the terrific kitchen staff, participated. Using the Disciple curriculum “Peace Works,” there were lots of great discussions and worship experiences. They were also blessed to have in camp a Disciples Peace Intern, Elsie Croasdale.
Recreation highlights include three gigantic tarps with water and soap. They played hockey, dodge ball, and water slide kickball on the 48-foot-long slippery tarp. Some participants joyfully were able to slide the whole distance.
The camp was held a week later than usual to allow for folks attending General Assembly. Next summer’s camp will be held July 27-31. Remember: God takes life’s broken pieces and gives us unbroken peace.
