Yesterday was an exciting day here at JV Camp. First, we had a beautiful, warm, sunny day! Second, the campers went on their first of two off-camp trips. We were able to enjoy a picnic lunch at the Picnic Rocks in Marquette, and from there we left for our hike. Our afternoon was spent in a challenging climb up Hogback Mountain. We were so excited that all the campers made it to the top! At the summit we enjoyed the vista and then descended the mountain. Campers and staff were able to have a great time in nature and bonding with each other. We returned to UPBC for dinner, free time, and evening chapel.
Today is another a picture-perfect day at camp. The morning is cool, but temperatures are supposed to rise throughout the day. Campers will continue to enjoy ice cream from the trading post and optional evening tournaments. Earlier this week we held a 4-on-4 Gaga Ball tournament. This evening we are starting the 4-on-4 Ultimate Frisbee tournament.
As you may know, the theme for JV 2017 is “Live Like You’re Loved.” During chapels and devotions, campers are being challenged to grow in their relationship with God, experience his love, and learn how to let that love flow out to others. It’s our hope and prayer that these two weeks will make a lasting impact on each camper’s spiritual journey and walk with God.
