the CO's Report
Once again we used Campaigner’s own canvas in a farmer’s field near the little village of Gidleigh, which is south east of Okehampton in Devon. This site is on the edge of the beautiful Dartmoor National Park, offering great walking country, spectacular scenery and a range of outdoor activities.
The theme for camp was ‘Desert Detectives’. Each day we were digging around searching for the ‘Mighty God Sword'. The whole purpose was to learn about our relationship with God, and salvation through Jesus Christ. Eventually we did find the treasure the ‘Mighty Gods Word’. We did all this with the help of puppet and drama teams, bringing the events of the Bible to life. Linked to the theme were the early morning quiet time and the morning craft activities ‘museum artefacts’.
At 9.30 pm we ran an extra session for Delta - an open forum when anyone could ask questions.
This year’s camp was good for the children to learn to dig a little deeper into the Bible for themselves, to see that God has a plan for them, but it was also great to see this older group listening and getting involved and to see God working in their lives too.
