Camp camp and more camp!

Hey everyone! I just finished my first week of camp this past week and I'm getting ready to go out for another one today!

In case you don't know or perhaps forgot, I am doing this thing through school where I am on a team of 4 that goes out to different church camps and tells people about the school and am there to provide a helping hand.

This past week we were at an elementary week, which was interesting to say the least. First off, we were only supposed to have jr. high and high school kids since our job is promoting the school, but somehow this camp tricked us. Sneaky little buggers.

I was the worship leader for the week, which wasn't that big of a deal because I have been leading worship for the elementary kids at my church for about a year now, but what was interesting was trying to do it alone with no one to teach the choreography. So I would tell them how the song went, then I would try to remember the choreography the best I could, then we would play the song. Anyone ever heard the song Romans 16:19? Well that happened to be the kids favorite song and they begged for it every day. I played twice a day every day and there was only one session that I managed not to play that song. It's not that it's a bad song or anything, but twice a day for a whole week is a little much. :)

We had many interesting experiences with the campers, but for the most part they were good kids. This part might make you southerners smile: the camp was in southern Kentucky and by the second day my whole team was starting to say little words in a southern accent, it was so bad that at one point when I woke up from a nap I was hearing my thoughts in a southern accent! Don't worry though, for the most part I have kicked it, but it was scary, I wasn't sure how long it was going to last!

I was planning on showing you all pictures, but we just didn't take very many, so this week we will take a lot of pictures and I will be able to show you my team and everything. You can also see them on my facebook if you want to see, and sorry for the creepy profile picture!

On the bright side we have high schoolers this week!
