Well, the first day of camp has gone great! One of the best parts of today has been getting to know the campers. They are at such a fun age 🙂

Beach Crew

Even though it was a bit chilly, we still had a good turnout at the beach. Especially for the counselor hunt. The campers combed camp’s grounds to find their counselor or another staff member and if they did, that staff member got pushed in the lake! A camp classic.

Counselor Hunt

Though today has been the first day of Adventurers 1, we still had ample amounts of free time to enjoy camp. Paddleboating, carpetball, canteen, the gift shop, swimming, and canoeing were some of the most popular free time activities.


After free time and dinner, the campers went to chapel where they learned what it means to be on this road trip called life. Bill Abeler, the camp director, shared his wisdom and gave the kids a good time.

The carnival followed chapel. Wow, were the campers excited! They were able to dunk their counselor, get “tumbleweed hair,” challenge a staff member to carpetball, or face down Joe Budish in a hockey shoot.


Well, that’s all for now. See you back here tomorrow before noon! Have a great day and remember to give all the glory back to God!
