Our girls went to Pine Cove Base Camp last week. This is a true camp experience minus the overnight stays in cabins, (which we are planning on sending our girls to next summer!) This is their second year, and next summer Asher will get to go! I highly recommend looking for a Base Camp in your city next summer for your kids ages “going into first grade thru sixth grade.” (Base Camp will be called “Camp in the City” from now on.)
Ella cried on Friday at the closing ceremonies. Ella always cries at good-byes. But James reminded her there will be no more good-byes in heaven! And going to Base Camp this past week was an earthly taste of what heaven will be like: dancing and worshiping Jesus with joy, laughing, neon colors everywhere…(okay maybe not that part!) 🙂
At the end of the closing ceremony, the counselors present their camper with a character quality that they saw in them during the week.
