Update Archive Pre-June 5th
Hello again everyone,
We are just 2 weeks away from Staff Training. YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is so much to do it is unbelievable. I am not sure how we are going to get everything done but it will get done. There is a small measure of feeling overwhelmed starting to settle in. Thank you for prayers, love and support. It is needed and appreciated.
We continue to host a number of schools for activity days. This is again great promotion for the camp and a good source of spring revenue. We have 7 different activity days in the next 10 work days. Schools love coming here for these events, especially when the weather is like it is today.
Last week we also held the grade 9 graduation for Prince Of Peace School. It was an awesome event and our Seasonal Leadership Team and kitchen staff did an fantastic job. Momma Ruth commented on the fact that she had never seen a team work as hard as our team worked on Friday night. Our Seasonal Leadership is creating a culture here at camp and it is an incredible culture to be a part of. Also, as always, the food was off the charts. Chicken, salads, ribs, potatoes, and sundaes for dessert. It was AMAZING!!! Great job team. And the weather was great too.
Assistant Director Collin, CLTD Leader Kylie and myself had the pleasure of spending Sunday morning with Lakeview Baptist Church and it was an awesome time. Collin and Kylie led worship and I spoke. I am humbled by the opportunities I have in this job to worship with the various churches who are a part of what we do.
Also on Sunday, a small group from Sunwest Church came and helped do some work around the camp. Many of our campers, CLTD members, and staff come from Sunwest and they have really started to become involved in the camp. It was great to have some of their members come and volunteer their time on Sunday.
Also, another huge shout out goes to Dan Styles for spraying the whole camp on the weekend to get rid of all the dandelions. We have a lot of them and Dan spent much of his weekend riding around on a tractor to kill them all. He is incredible. Also, thank you to Darrell Gass for donating the product to the camp.
Our 30 days of prayer continues. However, we still have some dates available including June 13, 14, 18, 20, 22, 24 and 25. Also, one of the things we would love is to hear feedback about your day praying for camp. Earlier this week I received this email from someone who was praying for camp:
"It is now noon and I have had a wonderful morning with God. He has confirmed to me that He is involved in every aspect of Camp life and He will do great things if we trust Him and always give thanks in all situations. Now I will continue to pray and especially for the staff and the kids coming into camp. God bless you all and enjoy the rest of the day."
Messages like this are so encouraging. Feel free to email us, write a letter or post on social media using the hashtag #cc30. Thanks again for your support in this area and let us know if you can take one of the dates mentioned above.
Things are going really well at camp but I do feel like I should spend some time in this update talking about some of the concerns and needs that we have right now as we prepare for the summer. One area of concern completing the reno work we started before the summer starts. One of the struggles the camp has seen in all of the transition we have gone through is the amount of TLC a lot of our buildings need. Up keep has been an area of concern for the past little while. However, we are getting on top of the w
