Good day parents!! Today(yes today) is WACKY WEDNESDAY! Our schedule here at Sports Camp is flipped upside down and all around!
This morning in Batters Box campers read about Peter’s reaction to Jesus’ betrayal by Judas. Just like Peter, we too think about what is best for us and lose sight of the bigger picture. Stepping forward to selfishly fight for what he wanted, Peter had to be given a clearer picture of the full battle plan. Jesus had to be arrested and led to the cross so he could die for all our sins. This taught Peter and us that not everything is about what we want.
FINAL SCORE of the day: He is selfless! In Him, we can be selfless!
Campers spent more time in their sports specialties today. Football & Soccer began preparing for the ultimate showdown which will take place Friday. Basketball, Volleyball & Tennis worked together in some GREAT team building exercises! Today was also SPEED AND AGILITY for tennis!! ODS continued their hiking adventures all over camp, a few campers even got to try the archery and shooting range! Today was STUNT DAY for GCD & Aquatics worked on a fun swim routine. Baseball & Golf continued to learn some foundational techniques to help improve their skill.
Ahoy Matey’s! Pirates(campers) & their captains(coaches) flooded Sports Camp in search of famous pirate treasure. Stations were set up all over the sports field for the swashbuckling pirates to plunder! I saw several pirates mutiny and revolt against their Captains(some even made them walk the plank at the Sports Pool).
A little rain caused our ropes time and pool party to be canceled. However, campers went into the indoor courts because here at camp we DONT WASTE FUN!!! Campers had a great time playing sports and hanging out with their coaches. After MAC & WOG campers had a hug cabin cheer off. It was a close game but in the end the winners were………..BUG TUSSLE AND ROSEBUD!!!!!
Tonight was also the night of the Gospel presentation. Campers were able to watch a presentation and live-action viewing of the Gospel including Jesus’ death and resurrection. After, all headed to the sports field for stargazing. Star-gazing is a one-on-one time between campers and coaches where coaches can share the gospel with each individual camper. They then have the chance to pray over their campers. It is such a unique and inspirational night here at T Bar M Sports Camp.
We had a FANTASTIC time today with your campers and are so blessed to spend it with them. Tomorrow LOC’s(Leaders of Camp) head out to TSR(Texas Ski Ranch) and our theme night is always a T Bar M favorite: MISSION IMPOSSIBLE!!
