A couple of weeks ago, I spent the weekend with over 200 Jr. High kids. Am I crazy? Maybe… It was a weekend that will go down as one of the best in memory. The theme was based on “Life is a Highway” (originally written by Tom Cochrane & covered recently by Rascall Flatts) with the idea that we are each in charge of the roads we travel, we are each in control of our destinies.
After arriving on a Saturday morning and then leaving the next Sunday afternoon, there was a surprising and uplifting sense of comraderie among those who were present. I’m so grateful that I was able to be part of such a positive and faith-filled weekend.
For those who’ve never had a chance to be part of any camp or retreat experience, I encourage you to consider where you are in your faith life and whether or not it’s something that may be right for you. For those that have… You already know! These opportunites are great whether you’re a “camper” or a “leader.” Just do it. It’s worth it.
To give you an idea, here’s the closing video from this last Spirit Quest:
