From the Director of Boys Camp:

We had a fantastic week at Boys Camp 2009. The weather was hot, but that just made water activities that much better. This week we studied the summer theme of “firmly planted”. These guys learned the lessons from the life of David. The theme verse of Jeremiah 17:7-8 was the focus of the week — “blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord in storms, avoids sin, abides deeply, and produces fruit.”

Some of the fun things this week were paintball, capture the flag, making pinewood derby cars, making bread, learning about maple syrup, climbing the tower, doing the zip line and giant swing, basketball and archery tournaments, and anything that relates to water.

Both the staff and campers were great. It would be hard to beat the quality of these 46 young men we had as campers this week. We had minimal discipline issues to deal with and were all encouraged in how they seemed to desire to learn more about God and his Word. The highlight of this week was the entire day of Friday. On Friday, we had four young men make decisions for Christ and one rededicate his life. Please pray for the campers. Pray that they would take what they learned at camp and truly apply it to their lives… and not only for a week or two until the “camp high” wears off. We hope and pray that these young men will continue to grow with Christ and that they will be on fire for the Lord.

A warm thanks to all the campers, parents, Boys Camp, and LWBC full-time and summer staff who made this wonderful week possible!
