Highlights Included:

  • Swimming & boating in the lake
  • River tubing
  • Hiking
  • Skeet shooting
  • Contra dancing in the pavilion outside
  • Singing around the fire at 1 AM
  • Impromptu hymn & psalm singing
  • Intense games of air hockey, ping pong, and pool in the camp lodge
  • Being encouraged by great speakers and fellow young believers
