God will guide you continually

Yesterday morning in Underground, we learned about the verse in Isaiah 58:11 that says:

The Lord will guide you continually,
    giving you water when you are dry
    and restoring your strength.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
    like an ever-flowing spring.

The LITs provided a great illustration which built on yesterday’s Skittley Goodness object lesson.  They had a jug of Iced Tea, and used that to show what happens when we grow stagnant in our Faith — That’s what happens to water when it doesn’t move and nothing changes.  It gets ‘icky.’  That’s what happens to us when we’re not open to receiving God’s goodness.  We stay the same, our water gets stagnant, and we turn icky.  However, when we make ourselves open to receiving God’s “Skittley Goodness,” God will fill us up.  The LITs plunged a garden hose into the jug of Iced Tea and let water run in.  It took a minute or two, but the water in the jug began to run clear because it forced the Iced Tea out (into a bucket below, don’t worry — no messes were made).  When we stay connected to Jesus we get living water and experience nourishment from God.

Then we looked at the story of the Samaritan Woman at the well in John 4.  Jesus offered her living water as well, even though he had been the one to go to her for a literal drink.  This was followed by testimonies from 4 of our LITs ~ Hope, Luke, Danielle, and Kenny.  I understand that yesterday morning was not the only time that testimonies were heard.  The four who shared yesterday morning each talked briefly about how they keep getting refreshed and how they stay tapped into God.

Yesterday evening’s Underground service started with some worship, then went into a more unstructured time of testimonies from kids, and allowed them to share what God is doing in their own lives, and how He revealed Himself to them this week at Camp.  They wrapped up with a more energetic set of worship to celebrate the last night of Camp.

I’m including a picture of First Aid Kits, which were given to each one here who has either made a new commitment to follow Christ this week, or who had already made that commitment in their lives.  The First Aid Kit represents God’s healing power in their lives.  They were hung on the wall in the shape of a Cross, and I think it’s a really powerful visual to show us just how many kids have taken this message seriously!  Praise God!

As I sit here writing this to you, I am in the Tuck Shop for the last time this week, and over my head I can hear cheers as the final awards for the week are given out and staff is thanked.  Before I headed downstairs, I saw kids hugging their counselors and their new friends they’ve made in their cabins because it’s time to go home.  Actually as I type this very paragraph, all I can hear is the sound of chairs being put on top of tables to get ready to do a good sweep and mop of the dining hall floor.  Quest is over.  But it’s our prayer that the lives of the kids who were here this week have been forever impacted, hopefully in ways we can’t possibly fathom quite yet.  We hope that seeds have been sown onto fertile ground where hearts were ready to hear the good news of Jesus, and that life may never be the same.  That’s our prayer, and we’d love it if you’d join us in that as well.

So for the end of Quest, here are a few pictures that I managed to scrape together yesterday, between me and our awesome Craft Coordinator Teresa who has been texting me great pictures throughout the last few days.

I spied on the canoers and kayakers.  I love the day that the canoers get out into the open water and practice tipping their canoes.  I remember that clearly from when I was a camper.  It was scary to tip the boat, but it was really good to feel that prepared.  I’ve been in canoes in some rougher waters before, and I can’t help but think that part of the reason I wasn’t overly scared is because I was well prepared.

Throughout the week, all the challenges and games counted for points, to be rewarded at the end of the week.  Last night the Red Team got to celebrate their win with an ice cream bar AND taking a great big swing at our Piñata.

IMG_6652 IMG_6654 IMG_6655 IMG_6656 IMG_6657 IMG_6658

There will be no blog tomorrow morning as there are no kids here, but we’ll meet again on Monday for the beginning of Blaze!

Receiving God’s Skittley Goodness

As I sat yesterday listening to the Worship the kids were doing at the beginning of Underground, they started singing a song that brought me right back to my childhood.  Have any of you ever belted “Walking on the Heavenly Road” around the Campfire at the old campfire pit half-way down the driveway?  It felt like I was 9 years old again.  It was great.  It’s also great to hear those kids sing so loudly, proclaiming God’s truth in song.

Yesterday in Underground, Laura started the message off by telling kids that she knows they’re tired.  It’s almost the end of the week, and of course we’re tired!  We’ve had a great week with lots and lots of things to do!  God brought each kid here though to meet us here, and to have us learn about the relationship He wants with us, and Laura did a great job at reminding us of that.

So what happens if we get lost?  The LIT Skit team demonstrated this for us.  They were looking at a map and one of the team pointed out a route that would shave 2 km off their trip, that several pointed out was on one of the routes that had dangers and places they shouldn’t go…. “But it’ll save us so much time!”  It looked like it was going to save them time, but one of them slipped and fell, and it didn’t end up saving time in the end at all!

The verse they were drawing on was Psalm 119:2-3:

Blessed are those who keep his statutes
    and seek him with all their heart—
they do no wrong
    but follow his ways.

We learned about Repentance.  To repent is to turn around, away from your sin, and turn toward God.  As an illustration, Tim put a cup upside down on a tray, and had some LITs help him demonstrate what it looks like when our lives are closed off to receiving God’s goodness.  He’ll try to give it to us, but if we’re not open, we can’t receive it.  The LITs tried to pour Skittles into an upside down cup, and naturally the cup wasn’t able to receive any of the Skittles.  Laura coined this “receiving God’s skittley goodness.”  But when the cup is turned toward God, with the open side facing up, the cup could be filled with Skittles and even overflowed!  God wants to fill our lives with goodness, but if we’re not open to it we won’t be able to receive it.

Laura told the story of Saul and his conversion to Paul in Acts 9.  He went from persecuting Christians, to encountering God on the road.  He went blind, and then was healed by Ananaias.  After being healed, he became a force to be reckoned with in sharing the Gospel, and ended up being able to reach people who couldn’t be reached by anyone else.  What a great testimony!

Yesterday was a beautiful day!  Absolutely beautiful!  I went out in the boat TWICE!  And my face is only a little bit pink…. Enjoy a smattering of yesterday’s pictures!

The first thing that happened yesterday morning was a Crew canoeing/kayaking outing.  The water was SO calm through the morning.  The wind did pick up a little later and the water got choppy by third activity for tubing, but what a great shot captured by Teresa of the Crew heading out toward the island yesterday morning.

IMG_6628 IMG_6627

At Crafts, it looks like yesterday there were some bookmarks designed and some pots of gold made!  Will looked pretty pleased with his pot of gold.

IMG_6625IMG_6626

I snapped some pictures of kayaking and kids playing in the water at the beach.  It was a warm, sunny day yesterday, and today promises to be more of the same!

DSCN1366 DSCF7068

I went out in the boat and snapped some shots of the first Water Sports major group, which I hadn’t seen yet this week.  Check out how calm the water was!  And Jack got a great view of some geese off to his side while he was skiing.  They were farther away than they look — I have a great zoom lens 😉

I stopped by Beauty from the Inside Out to find kids making and putting on facial masks!

DSCN1356 DSCN1357 DSCN1358

At Sports Major I found a rousing game of soccer going on.

DSCN1360 DSCN1362

I went for a wee hike up half the Hiawatha Trail to find the Photography Major participants taking pictures of the second activity water sports majors!

DSCN1363

At tubing, the water had gotten a bit rougher as the wind picked up in the afternoon, so I had a hard time getting clear pictures, but the kids had a great time, and when I did get clear pictures, you can see great big smiles!

DSCF7112 DSCF7117 DSCF7134 DSCF7128 DSCF7123 DSCF7121 DSCF7159 DSCF7152 DSCF7146 DSCF7137 DSCF7179 DSCF7171 DSCF7168 DSCF7163 DSCF7180

The evening game was called Douse the Flames.  The idea here is that the three teams each have a fire, and opposing teams try to douse the fires with water balloons.  Some stay behind to defend their fire pit, while other runners go back and forth to the water balloon supply and try to get the other fires out!  We had a bit of trouble getting the fires going strong at first, but luckily we have people like Nat and Jared around who were on point to make safe, good fires that would last a few water balloon attacks.  I don’t know who won, but it looked like a lot of fun!  Winning isn’t important, anyway 🙂

Kahquah Quadathlon

Quadathlon day is always a great day for the Camp photographer.  Usually, I don’t stick around for the Camp Wide Game because all it is is pictures of the kids running, and while I can score some awesome action shots, it’s often hard to explain.  In the Quadathlon though (as well as during Douse the Flames which happens tonight), there are many parts of the event and it’s a great opportunity for awesome pictures.  They’re coming toward the end of this post!

Yesterday was another spectacular day.  The sun shone all day, and the lake was calm!  It rocked.

During Underground in the morning, we learned about having friends along the way to help, encourage, and guide us in our journeys.  We need to work together.  Our LIT Canoe trip skit team showed us that when we work together we can accomplish so much more.  One of them even pronounced “let’s work together on the rest of the canoe trip!”

Hebrews 10:24-25 says

24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.

Our group of LITs and staff worked together to show our kids many visuals that they need to help remember the messages and verses taught during Underground.  They did a demonstration where several of them were given ropes and told to tie up harnesses that would be safe for ascending to Base Camp.  Kids did up some harnesses and then were asked who felt safe.  Aunt Chloe was one of the volunteers who did up a harness, and everyone agreed that they would feel safest in her harness — but the reason they agreed?  She’s our Ropes Coordinator!  She’s trained in ropes.  She’s read the Guide Book!  One kid exclaimed that it wasn’t fair… but… we quickly assured them that it’s like our walk with God.  When we’re following the Bible (our Guide Book), it’s a lot easier to do things the way we’re supposed to.

We learned about the story in Mark of the friends who lowered a friend who needed healing through a hole in a roof that they made because they loved their friend so much!  They couldn’t get through the crowds to Jesus to get healing for their friend, but because they had faith in what Jesus could do, and because they were thinking of ways to motivate one another in acts of love and good works, they were willing to fight for their friends!

Finally, to close up the teaching yesterday morning, campers were asked if anyone wanted to pray over their small group time.  Young Ruby volunteered, and though her voice was quiet, her prayer was mighty.  She prayed for the whole Camp and prayed for a solid small group time!  She was motivated by love for her fellow campers and for the Camp.  It was awesome!

As I sit writing this post, a friend of mine from my Home Church at home texted me to cry out “We miss you!!!!!”  I miss my friends from home too, but my friend asked a great question while we chatted briefly.  “Are you learning lots?”  I answered that of course I am!  I get to sit in on the morning Underground sessions every day, and even though what’s being taught to the kids is fairly simple, they’re all good reminders and great to hear for even more mature Christians.  These kids sure are lucky to have such gifted teachers teaching them this week!

Now, I have a lot of pictures for you from yesterday.

Teresa, our Craft Coordinator this week, has been doing some pretty cool things in the Craft activity this week!  She’s also been taking great pictures of the kids working and texting them to me throughout the day, so I want to give her a great big shout out for that!  Yesterday they made Rain Sticks, which looked like a lot of fun!

IMG_6622 IMG_6614 IMG_6615 IMG_6616 IMG_6619 IMG_6620 IMG_6621

There was a cookie eating contest yesterday, too, apparently!  I wish I’d have known so I could have gotten in on that!

IMG_6624 IMG_6623

At Canoeing, it was great practice for the Quadathlon later in the evening.  All I could hear during the girls’ canoeing leg of the race was Tessa yelling STROKE!  STROKE! in time, and then watched while her canoe soared ahead of the others.

DSCF6925 DSCF6927 DSCF6930

Kayaking would also have been excellent practice for the Quadathlon in the evening!  I wonder if any of these kids were the ones whose kayaks went swiftly through the water during the race as well.

DSCF6928 DSCF6929

At Archery, we had a few bulls’ eyes, and one of our archers even shot two!  What aim!

DSCF6931 DSCF6933 DSCF6936 DSCF6938 DSCF6939 DSCF6940 DSCF6941

At the Rock Wall, I made it there just in time for Ruby to make it to the top, scale her way back down, and enthusiastically exclaim “I wanna go up the other side now!”  And she did. Emily also looked pretty excited to scale the wall.

DSCF6942 DSCF6943 DSCF6944 DSCF6958 DSCF6959 DSCF6960 DSCF6961

Low Ropes is always a challenge and fun for kids who get to test their balance and their agility, all while being watched closely by our leaders just in case they lose their footing.

DSCF6945 DSCF6946 DSCF6951 DSCF6957 DSCF6953

Yesterday was a great day for Water Sports, and today looks to be even better with the lake absolutely perfectly calm.

DSCF6965 DSCF6968 DSCF6974 DSCF6977 DSCF6978 DSCF6987

Here is part of our Waterfront team, disappointed that so many people tagged into the beach but didn’t sign out!  (Don’t worry, this didn’t really happen…. we staged this photo purely for entertainment value).

DSCF6989 DSCF6990

Lastly, here are our Quadathlon pictures.  The Quadathlon consisted of Canoers heading out around lifeguard Sarah and back to the beach, then tagging a swimmer.  The swimmer swam to the main dock, and tagged the second swimmer who swam back to the beach to tag in a kayaker.  The kayaker kayaked around Sarah and back to the beach, then tagged the runner, who ran to the Shuffleboard Court to eat a raw potato.  I don’t really understand the potato thing, but I got some pretty great pictures from my stance on one of the finger docks!

Rainy Day Adjustment

Yesterday was my day off.  It was a rainy day off!  I had asked Hannah to take my camera around through the day yesterday and take pictures of various events through the day.  I had especially asked her to take pictures across the road of rock climbing, low ropes, and archery…. but it poured.

DSCF6872

Luckily, we have creative staff, and our program directors for the week, Brooklyn and Cameron, were able to move things around and make adjustments to their schedule so that kids could still have fun, just inside fun instead!

To combat the rain, we had kids in Crafts, playing board games, and playing musical chairs.  We even had an impromptu talent show!  I’m thankful for our staff and their ability to roll with the punches.  I know last summer we had quite a few rainy days, so we hope this isn’t foreshadowing of what’s to come.  Our 7-day forecast looks pretty good right now though!  There’s some rain showing for next Tuesday again, but we can’t complain.  We’ve had some lovely days, and there are more to come this week!  And we do need some rain, or we’ll lose our campfires!  So a little bit is totally fine with us!

Yesterday in Underground, kids talked about compasses and how just like a compass would be an excellent tool to guide us on our base camp journey, we need the Holy Spirit to guide us in our spiritual walks.  I’ve been loving listening to the combination of Graeme, Cait, Tim, and Laura with the LITs.  Many voices all teaching the same ideas reinforces truth to these kids!  Check out pictures I took this morning of visuals they’ve hung on the walls ~ Bible Verses that guide us and a giant compass.

DSCF6919 DSCF6923 DSCF6922 DSCF6921 DSCF6920

Oh, and I need to show you this…. Monday evening, the Camp-Wide game was Giant Clue.  Someone stole the treasure map, and kids had to run from location to location asking for clues.  Once they had solved the mystery, obviously the map thief had to be punished.  It turned out that it was Noah… Noah stole the map because he needed toilet paper, and he was hiding in the old outhouse.  His punishment was to be covered in chocolate pudding.  Gross, but… tasty… at the same time?

IMG_6603

Our Guide Book

Monday was a great day!  I’m writing this to you Monday evening (even though you won’t read it until Tuesday morning…. crafty technology, eh?  Lets me schedule things for later!  haha.)

During Underground, the LITs have been loving helping out.  There’s a skit ongoing and running through all of the sessions that will wrap up at the end of the week.  This morning’s were awesome!  They started off with a skit about a Guide Book, drawing back on their Canoe trip from last week.  They talked about how the Guide Book (in this case, a trail map) is important for them to get to their destination without getting lost, and how it shows dangers that they should avoid — just like the Bible does in their lives.  The Guide Book shows us where to go.  Psalm 32:8 says “I will instruct you and and teach you in the way you should go.”

We talked about Parables being stories that Jesus made up to illustrate a point, and about how He told one about planting seeds.  In one instance the seeds were swooped away by birds — that’s like when we share about our faith after we get back from Camp and no one listens to us.  The seeds can be planted in the gravel, and we can have a good faith for a while, but then our emotions wear off and we forget about it because our roots aren’t deep enough.  The seeds can be over-run by the weeds — that happens when we get stressed out and our faith gets choked by the World.  OR the seeds can take root in good soil, producing good crops that we can then share with everyone around us.  That happens in our lives when we let the Word sink in and set deep roots.

Tuesday they’ll be learning about the Compass and how that relates to the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Check out the pictures from Monday!  I made it to a lot of places.  I plan to get across the road on Wednesday and out in the boat Thursday and Friday.

Here are several from the LIT skits this morning.  The pictures don’t do them justice.  The skits were very well done, and I didn’t hear kids chatting through them, which in my experience teaching generally means they’re engaged.  They were great!

DSCF6783 DSCF6785 DSCF6786 DSCF6788 DSCF6789 DSCF6791 DSCF6792 DSCF6793

At Crafts, kids were being creative with all kinds of ideas!  They were able to use sticks and maple keys to make snake or dragonfly magnets, or plants in a planter!  They were very cute, and I loved some of the ideas the kids came up with!

DSCF6796 DSCF6797DSCF6840 DSCF6841

At kayaking and canoeing, today was spent mostly learning strokes and proper techniques in order to keep our kids safe on the water.  Even Landon Droppert really wanted to get in on the kayaking action!

DSCF6798 DSCF6799 DSCF6802 DSCF6803 DSCF6805 DSCF6806 DSCF6807 DSCF6808 DSCF6812

The beach looked like a TON of fun today!  There were kids there building sand creations as well as playing in the water every time I walked past.

DSCF6804 DSCF6800DSCF6843 DSCF6844

At the Ropes major, kids today also spent time learning proper techniques for how to tie their knots and how to make sure they stay safe at the rock wall!  I love watching our leaders work with the kids, because they know precisely how important safety is out there and they want to keep everyone safe while they have fun.

DSCF6813 DSCF6815 DSCF6816

The Crew girls (Crew-tons!) got into a rousing game of 9 Square In The Air!  Well, most of them… a few of them preferred to sit and cheer on their crew-mates.

DSCF6818 DSCF6817 DSCF6820

The kids in the Water Sports majors also had to learn their skills on land today.  It’s just easier to teach some of those skills when you’re not in the water, so they spent the first day on the docks, working closely with some of our staff who are very good at what they do!  I wouldn’t know the first thing about how to explain how to water ski or knee board!

DSCF6823 DSCF6821 DSCF6824 DSCF6825 DSCF6826 DSCF6827 DSCF6829 DSCF6831

The Gaga Ball pit has been a great success!  Kids seem to love it!  I think it looks like a lot of fun, too.  I haven’t been in it yet, though.  It feels like it’d be dangerous with a camera hanging around my neck 😉

DSCF6833 DSCF6839 DSCF6838 DSCF6837

At Beauty from the Inside Out, participants are having fun not only playing with makeup and nail polish (and trying out their skills on their leaders!), but they’re talking about what makes them beautiful on the inside as well.

DSCF6846 DSCF6847

Finally, cookie baking was a huge hit.  I got there just in time to watch kids eat their delicious creations!  They even shared one with Uncle Frank, who loved every bite.  Well done, bakers!

A New Quest

Welcome back to Kahquah Base Camp ~ Our theme for the whole summer.  This week’s programming theme is “The Andes,” and I’ve got to say that Brooklyn and Cameron have done a spectacular job decorating the dining hall.  It looks great!  Brook and Cameron are our program directors for the week, and I’m excited to see what they have planned for our kids.

DSCF6760 DSCF6762

The beginning of a new week always brings introductions.  Conor introduced the waterfront team (minus Lynn as it was her day off).  I’m always proud of our lifeguards and waterfront staff and the hard work they do.  They’re always doing their best to keep your kids safe.

The bus arrived EARLY yesterday, which was fantastic!  We were able to take care of tuck money and medications before dinner, which meant that we were able to take cabin photos on a beautiful day yesterday.

Swim tests went off without a hitch yesterday.  We operate on a coloured band system so that all staff can tell who should be able to participate in which activities.  You can see a picture here of Uncle Conor explaining the beach procedures to a cabin before he lets them onto the beach, making sure they’re all listening and understanding before he lets them go.

I’m sitting right now in my office listening to worship led by Laura Osburne, our worship leader for the week.  One of our co-speakers for the week, Laura Droppert, is about to start her message for the morning.  She’s teaching in the mornings while our executive director, Frank Littel, is speaking in the evening Underground sessions.  Laura is one of our LIT leaders, along with her husband Tim, and Graeme and Caitlin Hogg.  The LITs are very excited to be a part of the teaching this week, and I hear there are great skits coming to reinforce the messages.  LITs are shadowing in cabins this week, helping lead Undergrounds and small groups, and learning how to be leaders from our more experienced cabin leaders.  Look forward to some pictures and a deeper explanation of today’s Underground in tomorrow’s blog post 🙂

They’re Blazing!

Blaze has begun!  They’re here!  They arrived and ate some tacos.

I have succumbed to the Kahquah Cold that usually attacks our staff in some way or another, one or two at a time, throughout the summer.  SO before the Nyquil kicks in and my writing becomes completely incomprehensible, here’s your Blaze 2013 Update!

Every weekend, the staff is off from Saturday when the kids leave until Sunday when the new set of kids shows up.  I have some pictures of staff tubing and knee/wakeboarding.

IMG_5050 IMG_5101 IMG_5099 IMG_5097 IMG_5088 IMG_5086 IMG_5084 IMG_5080 IMG_5078 IMG_5076 IMG_5066 IMG_5061

At lunch yesterday, even though the kids were gone, we still sang a bunch of our “run around the table” songs during dessert.  Uncle Frank was caught with his elbows on the table, Uncle Jay gave us a gun show, Uncle Chris and Aunt Sherri ran around the tables hand in hand, and there was talk of trying to make Aunt Lynn give Uncle Randy a beach save…. but it never came to be.

In typical Sunday fashion, I have no pictures of the kids themselves.  I do, however, have some that I snagged from Matt after the LIT (Leaders in Training) Canoe trip, so I’ll share those.  The kids that were on this trip last week are now cabin leaders with an experienced leader, but are in the last half of their LIT Training.  They are excited to be cabin leaders, for sure!

Also awesome, our very own TK took some more lifeguard staff pics, and this time Bradley made it into the shots!  So please enjoy those as well.

I look forward to showing you highlights of the kids throughout the week!
