Home made encouragement cards

By | Projects | No Comments

Did you know that the majority of people have words of affirmation as one of their love languages.  Another way to say this is that most people like hearing words of encouragement.  We did a study with our Michigan Christian summer camp staff and found that 70-80% of them prefer words of encouragement to other forms of appreciation.  1 Thess 5:11 says “Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up just as in fact you are doing.”  Never underestimate the power of a word of encouragement.  Here’s a fun, creative idea to encourage people.  Make a homemade card with specialty paper from Joann Fabric.  Put a verse on the front and write a note of encouragement on the inside.  It will make someone’s day!

Favorite Photobooth Pics

By | Life at Camp | No Comments

We recently bought some new lights for our photo booth.  I was looking though old retreat photos from some of the church retreats and family camps we have done in the past.  There were so many fun photobooth moments.  People really love the things we do that make them laugh and make retreats and camps memorable.  We love doing things at a summer camp that sometimes are just sweet, cool, or even just for fun.  If ever you have any retreat ideas that we can implement here in Michigan, let me know!  Here’s some of those pics!
