Back in September, when I moved up to SAMBICA I had no clue what to expect. Since then I have come to realize that in these last 7 months I’ve found my sweet spot. Though I have experienced many different things, my current role is definitely my favorite: planning for Spring Break Camp 2014. As a team we have put our creativity to the test, forced one another to think outside the box, and found ourselves surpassing any limits we thought we had.
I mean, seriously, imagine this:
In the framework of the Olympics, during the entire week of Spring Break, kids compete to win the gold medal for their country. In the meantime, they are caught up in the lives of three goofy characters named Mo, Betsey, and Maximus, who try to reconcile their differences to try to win the gold for IceCreamastan. All the while they are listening to engaging Bible stories of King David in their cabin groups with their counselors, eating delicious food in the dining hall, singing funny songs during rally time, engaging with their peers during arts & crafts, and making memories filled with loads of laughter.
This Spring Break is going to be one that the kids (not to mention the team) won’t be able to forget. It’ll be just a “bite” of SAMBICA’s summer camp … which I personally have yet to experience. I pray that God will use this week to touch the lives of the amazing kids that we will be working with and to touch the lives of their families as they share what they learn each day of camp! I can’t wait to see it all play out, and to see what God’s plan is in all of it. As the programming team, we can plan as much as we want, but God’s plan is always the one that works out in the end. I have a feeling that this camp will exceed our expectations and just be super exciting for the kids who attend. Please, stand with the interns and the staff in prayer, that Spring Break Camp will be an amazing success, and life-changing for the children attending!
