Hi Girls!!

We’ve been super busy in the Youth Ministry office at church getting ready for CAMP CHEROKEE 2010! Camp is an AMAZING time of fun with friends, non-stop activities, and most importantly recharging you walk with the Lord. From tons of sports, water tubing, and some of the BEST food ever to camp fires, worship services, and tribal talks, there is never a dull moment. Whether your goal is to win a Bubble Bee or have your tribe be the Camp Champs, you don’t want to miss out! But the BEST thing about camp is retreating from the hustle and bustle of life and giving yourself time to be still before the Lord.

But don’t take my word for it! Check out what some of our FBC Girls have to say about camp! Here’s what I asked them…

1. What do you love most about camp?

2. What are you most excited about for camp THIS summer?

3. Why should others come to camp?

Hannah Wilds (rising 12th grader) said…

“My favorite thing about camp is making new friends and camp food! I am most excited this year about learning a lot and meeting new friends. EVERYONE should come to camp to have the funnest week ever!”

Annelise King (rising 8th grader) said…

1. Campfire and all the great worship services

2. EVERYTHING! Especially the interaction with other Christians.

3. You will have a lot of fun and make some wonderful memories.

Devon Vaughn (rising 12th grader) said…

“I love camp food! It is amazing... especially dirt cake. The people are amazing, too. I am most excited about the food, in case you couldn’t tell. I am also super excited about worship sessions and brother/sister tribe time. People should come to camp for the food, fellowship, and amazing time on the lake.”

Mary Martha Maddox (rising 8th grader) said….

1. I really like the quiet time and the worship services and tubing and the iceburg! :)

2. I won’t be at camp this year because I am traveling. :(

3. People should come to camp because its a blast, all your friends go, and you worship God for almost a week!

Gabby Earby (rising 12th grader) said…

“My favorite part of Camp Cherokee is worshiping every night. I love every part of camp, but that is definitely my favorite part. I love being with my friends, and making new friends. I learn so much that week. I grow so close to God, and I really get into His word. Camp Cherokee is one of the highlights of my year.”

Lainey Goodwill (rising 8th grader) said…

1. The feeling of safeness and security of being with people who love the Lord.

2. We (Annelise & I) got a big group of people from school to come.

3. It just might be the best week of your life.

Kristen Pickett (rising 12th grader) said…

1. I love camp because I love being able to spend a whole week with God and my peers.
