How did you spend your free time when you were a kid? What did you like doing most? My list would be much like the adults at the beginning of the video at the link below.
The close of the video shows one stark example of why camp is so important. Perhaps immersion in nature for a week can ignite a child’s love for the outdoors; creative, physical play; interaction with others.
Through CCCA’s “The Power of Camp” campaign, we have tried to shed light on how important it is for this generation to get outside, to experience God’s creation. This is a powerful, if not somewhat stunning, video. Let’s get more kids to camp where they can experience a great week of summer spent in nature. Maybe their experience will translate into a greater love for the outdoors when they return home.
