Another year of Summer Blast came and went with as much enthusiasm and joy as every year. All 150 campers came out five nights a week for Bible teaching, skits, songs with fun hand motions, games, snacks and or course, team competition. This year, beyond the usual ways for campers to earn points for their teams, each team had a bucket to fill as high as they could with spare change that would go to Feeding The Orphans (FTO) at the end of the week. The team with the heaviest bucket won massive points, and it was the Green team that won the challenge! However, the Purple Team was the overall winner for the week and enjoyed a bowl full of candy as their prize! Beyond all the winning, altogether the campers raised $1,949.20, all of which went to FTO to support their ministry in Ghana and other places of great need. Way to go, Summer Blast 2018 Campers!!!
Of course, campers are just half of the picture when it comes to Summer Blast. All the volunteers who made the week happened totaled to about 150, equaling the amount of campers. It took all of those people who were willing to sacrifice five evenings in a row to put on a fun and safe week for the kids. We are so grateful for how you served!
But enough talk – here are some pictures from the week in case you missed out on the fun!
