We had another full day here at Ox Lake! This morning, we participated in several “Growing Green Hearts” science-based activities including paper making, building a watershed, and testing the water quality in a nearby stream. It was a lot of fun and we learned a lot about God’s green earth!
After lunch, we tackled several elements on the high ropes course! For dinner, we had a special activity planned: Hunger Banquet. At the Hunger Banquet, the campers were able to experience the way that food is unevenly distributed in our world.
After our dinner experiment, campers and counselors discussed their experience. After discussion, they were offered food if they wanted to eat some more. After dinner, we had evening canteen, tie dye, special prayer worship, and campfire! Tomorrow is our last full day with our cabins! Our week is flying by! Check in tomorrow for more updates!
Tuesday was a big day for us! We had a canoeing trip down the St. Croix River- 7 miles! Afterwards, we got a sweet treat, and went to a nearby water fall to cool off! We ended our busy day with field games, canteen, campfire & devotions!
Thanks for reading! Check in again for updates on today (Wednesday) and tomorrow’s activities!
We have had a busy day today! This morning after breakfast we had chapel and then headed to the front for horseback riding, gaga, and bible study! We lunch at the front too and then did some low ropes team building activities with our cabins. The rest of our night was spent doing canteen, field games (Medic), cabin time, canteen at the village, campfire, and devotions before bed!
One of our counselors from Hong Kong taught us a hand clap game… check out this video… IMG_5441

We had a fun time settling in last night. After registration, we walked to the village and got to know how everything works (using the bathroom, cleaning up meals, & using first aid). After that, we had a pasta bar for supper and then Bible study. Then, we played a camp classic, Mighty Mighty! We ended the night with campfire and then devotions with our cabins.
Today, we have a lot of fun in store: horseback riding, gaga, Bible study, low ropes, canteen, campfire and more! Check back in later for the Monday update!
