Spring Retreat 2009

by Ben on March 20, 2009

Ropes CourseEvery year, the Nikos Camping ministry at Mission:Possible! has a Spring Retreat that happens during the first weekend of Spring Break. The campers came this year on Saturday morning, with most of the leaders arriving the day before. Camp extended through the weekend, ending on Monday just after lunch. Because of the cold weather and rain, there were several campers that didn’t come, but we had a few last minute children that came in their stead. We also had an overwhelming turnout of volunteer leaders this year, making the ratio of leaders to campers very good. This allowed the leaders to devote individual time to each camper and made the first step in building relationships a little bit easier.

The theme for camp this year was the “Nikos Olympics.” We talked about running the race for the Lord, and the campers were able to participate in a lot of fun activities that revolved around the theme. We even had a closing ceremony that the campers were able to perform a “movement” routine to music that they really enjoyed.

The Lord’s hand was evident as the leaders and campers interacted throughout the camp, and God provided just the right amount of adults to run games, activities, and serve food throughout the weekend. It was an exciting and praise filled weekend that all involved will not soon forget.
