Kids Going Bananas Day Camp is in full swing and going well. This is KGB’s second year and it’s encouraging to see how it’s grown. Our camp has doubled in size, and in the number of counselors. This group is made up mostly from our church’s youth ministry. Matt Gallant, our camp director and youth leader, is doing well leading the campers and counselors through the day.
Each day is packed with fun – creative Bible stories, songs, crafts (led by our own Jim Rodd), horseback riding, swimming (at the large and exciting Bull Run Regional Park), and field day games. It all comes together to make some wonderful summer memories.
Each Sunday during camp we’ve invited the camp families to attend our worship service. The campers sing. We have a slide show, and a time to meet and greet afterward. It’s proven to be a great outreach for our growing church.
When we started camp in the summer of 2007, we didn’t even know where our camp would meet. That’s when God opened the door for us to meet in our current location, an old Hollywood Video store. Looking back it’s been an amazing journey of faith. We’ve seen God provide more than enough at each and every step of the way. It just goes to show again, that when we obey God and reach out in faith, he rewards our trust in him. Hebrews 11:6 says, “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”
