Approximately 80 youth and adults from 11 different Christian Churches (Disciples of Christ) gathered at Hermitage Christian Church on Sunday afternoon April 23rd for a Pre-Camp Youth Rally for Faith Adventures 2017 Camp. The afternoon was spent getting acquainted, singing, playing games, watching camp videos from past years, making new friends, reconnecting with old friends, and of course eating, which was prepared by members of the Hermitage Christian Church. The camp theme for 2017 is “Unchained.” Rev. Jack Daniel, Pastor of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) of El Dorado Springs and also Camp Coordinator, addressed the group in his black and white convict outfit discussing Paul’s imprisonment and also the chains that hold each of us back from freedom through Christ.
Faith Adventures Camp began in 2014 from the brainstorming of four area pastors wanting a closer to home camp, an inexpensive camp, and a one stop drop for all ages in one week camp. The camp is run completely by volunteers. The camp started out with 57 campers and 23 volunteers in 2014 and has grown to nearly 120 campers with over 40 volunteers.
