by Rachel, American Christian Faith Adviser for NC Camp
This morning the 6th grade campers went on a hike on Eagle Rock trail with Jill, some Camp Bob staff and faith advisers. They climbed a mountain to a scenic overlook where they could reflect on the theme of the day: home. They were asked to draw about and share what home means to them. Here were some of the many answers that were shared.
“Wherever my books are is home.”
“Chocolate chip cookies mean home for me.”
“The globe holds my home.”
“Outside space, the landscape and view from my window. My garden is home.”
“Sitting on our porch with family talking.”
“Doing nothing with my family is home.”
“My state is what makes me feel pride of home. I also love my flag which symbolizes home and I hope to be the governor one day of my state.”
“The four chambers of my heart is home.”
After the hike back down the mountain the campers had lunch and spent the evening playing sports from Jerusalem and the US before their favorite activity of the day: swimming!
In the evening both the 6th graders and the LEAP kids got to be a part of a carnival with fun activities. They had fun playing all together in the big field as their counselors led in the fun.
In the evening reflection all together Lauren, American Jewish Faith Adviser for 6th grade, shared that she felt at home today in the cabin when we were making friendship bracelets with all the girls.
David Rowan, Camp Director, ended the evening by sharing a quote from his favorite bumper sticker: “If you lived in your heart you’d already be home.”
We’re looking forward to spending more time tomorrow growing as a Kids4Peace family.
