Pioneer/Explorer 1 is Underway!
The summer ministry of Inspiration Point has officially began as over 170 3rd-6th graders were welcomed for Pioneer/Explorer 1! The campers began their summer camp experience by getting introduced to the 2022 theme of "Finish Strong" and then immediately got to meet their counselor and cabin mates!
"Meeting my cabin was so fun because each year I get to meet new people." -5th Grade Boy
After getting acquainted with their new cabin mates, each cabin entered into a time we call WHIRLWIND, where they learn all of the most important elements of what will contribute to an awesome week at camp! Then, it's on to PIZZA NIGHT! The first night of every summer kids camp is a camper favorite meal consisting of a slice of "choose your own toppings" pizza, a brownie, and salad!
"Pizza night at IPoint rocks because we get to pick our own toppings and then the pizza tastes better because we got to pick it!" -4th Grade Girl
The fast paced nature of the first night of camp continued as campers gathered for a Pioneer/Explorer 1 camp photo! Then, counselors and campers head to the first all-camp activity of the week, HOOTENANNY! Here, cabins took turns performing their CABIN SONGS, which they worked tirelessly to write during supper, got introduced to the IPoint support staff, and learned the first theme verse of the week.
"We sang our cabin song, we won 3rd place, and we learned the first bible verse of the week." -5th Grade Boy
Isaiah 40:31 "Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
The evening of the first night was concluded at the IPoint campfire pit, where campers and staff joined together singing camp songs and praying that God would use this week at camp to grow each camper's trust in Him!
