Spring Camps report
2020 consisted of Sports United and Kids in the Kitchen catered to primary students, Junior AmUC exposed high school students to local missions, Breakaway catered to children with someone close to them in prison and South West Adventure and Spring CHIC were new additions to our spring season.
“My daughter said she made more friends in her week at camp than at school. She came home Christ filled and happy and wants to go on any other camps ASAP!!”.
It never ceases to amaze me just how much of an impact a few days at camp can have on a young life and 2020 Spring Holiday camps were no exception to this! Let me share a few examples with you:
A camper on Spring CHIC expressed to a leader that she heard from the Holy Spirit and saw a vision for the first time. The leader recounts; “After the talk, we visualised meeting with Jesus. A camper was in tears, overwhelmed by God’s love. She heard Jesus say ‘I love you unconditionally no matter what’ and she saw all of the lies she believed being deflected by this glass wall that surrounded her. She expressed that she felt “so free”, like “the chains have come off”, and finally remarked “I feel so free, it’s incredible!”.
Another camper, when asked how they wanted to change now they’ve been on camp, said: “I want to follow Jesus, commit my life to him and get baptised”!
Praise God for allowing us to be part of his work in such a way!
