How Outdoor Activities Positively Affect Kids

Written by Will Zinke   Hi! My name is Will Zinke, from Camp Gilead, and I was asked to do a blog on the importance of outdoor activities for children and being outside.  Well, let’s see, where should I start?  Camp ministry is all about getting kids outside! After a year of shutdowns and quarantines when kids binged on TV and video games, turning them into couch potatoes [ugh!], we can offer them real adventure!  We were meant to be outdoors in God’s creation, with the wind in our hair and sun on our faces! Being outside is beneficial for kids to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually,  As you probably already know, we NEED ...

Getting Away from the Noise

Written by Nathaniel Miller Campers are constantly bombarded by all the things the world offers. Think of a camper’s average day as a fair or carnival. Everywhere they look something is vying for their attention, time, energy, money, and resources. This picture is not an argument against fairs; I greatly missed the North Carolina State Fair this past year.  But when there are so many voices, music, and venues filling the space, it all comes across as noise.  As fun as fairs can be, it would be quite unhealthy to spend every day at one.  In some ways, this picture is what campers’ lives are like in the digital age.

What Missionaries Need Most

By Jacquelyn Davis Let's get real here for a minute. Missions probably isn't what you think it is. You might have gone on a short-term trip every year in high school; you might support multiple missionaries or have their prayer cards proudly displayed throughout your house, but missions isn't what you think. Missionaries will come to your church and share. You will hear members of the church telling you to pray for and support missions. They tell you to go and do mission work in your neighborhood, local church, or workplace. It is a constant heartbeat of believers to do, be, and connect with missions. I am so thankful for this. I am thankful ...
