Just returned home from Bogg Springs church camp on Friday morning. We went to Kidz Kamp and had a blast! It's hot, long breakfast and dinner lines, very little sleep...but so worth it to see those 102 kids line up to ring the bell on Thursday night because they were saved during the week.
It was a record breaking week...maybe one of the hottest I've been to and also the biggest camp in the 50 year history of the Bogg! There were 866 campers this week. Our church took 10 boys and 1 male sponsor along with 11 girls, 2 female sponsors and 2 from our church were staffers. The staffers at KK do an awesome job! Kidz Kamp is a staffer-led camp where the teen staffers who were recommended by their pastors, intensively trained for 2 days prior to camp are with their assigned group from wakeup to lights-out every single day. This year there were 107 staffers and it is so wonderful to see those teenage boys and girls getting big hugs with 15 kids hanging off of them...only the spirit of the Lord could lead these staffers to do what they do all week on very little sleep.
I have a lovely bug I picked up at camp so I'm on the couch resting up because on Monday I leave for a few days of R&R with my mom, Gracen and a couple of our friends. Looking so forward to the beach and good food after the Bogg cafeteria food this last week!
