Super Heroes for a Super God!
Thirty-five kids, twelve counselors, and lots of adults converged at St. Andrew Presbyterian Church for GAP's annual camp for disadvantaged children. Our theme this year was Super Heroes for a Super God, and we learned about four Bible heroes who used the super powers God gives us all. Mary Magdalene was BRAVE. The little boy with the loaves and fishes could SHARE. Lydia learned to TRUST in God. Barnabas was a good FRIEND. Everyone played, made crafts, got two good meals, learned new songs, and had fun swimming a the YMCA. This year many of the counselors were former campers who had looked forward to being old enough to come back in new roles.
The GAP Camp service project this year was the Thornwell Home for Children in Clinton, SC. Campers took up a collection and painted blessing rocks to send to the children. Sean Poppy from the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory was a special guest who taught us about local animals. Many thanks to the organizers, teachers, cooks, recreation leaders, drivers and counselors who made the camp a success. and, of course, to the good folks at St Andrew who showed great hospitality to our rowdy bunch.
