Every year my church puts on this AMAZING camp called Summer Hummer. Its the best VBS camp ever hands down. Let me tell you why, We have 850+ kids from the community com. 370 volunteers take the week off from work and there own schedules. We have a creative staff that makes this time of learning about God fun for these kids.The motto is "Teaching kids the meaning of life while having the time of their lives!" There is so much energy in this building that you can't help but want to be apart of this community of Love.
So I am on the music team that sing and yes dance in front of all these kids. Its a good thing that children are so graceful :)
I started training for camp way back in April with four other girls, that I have gotten to get closer to in this time and they are a stinking RIOT! Its so much fun! The boys are involved as campers and Ruby is in childcare with the Future campers group from 7:30-4pm in the afternoon but she loves it.
The interesting thing about camp is that I have learned so much about the Scriptures as I teach it in song to the kids. I love to walk behind the kids in the hall and listen to them singing softly to themselves the songs we just taught them. The children's faces light up when they sing and I know God's heart just melts as he listens to them. 55 kids came to know Christ at camp!
Its sad to say good-bye and although its so much work I am looking forward to it again. Hey PJ I may do a chain link of how many days till Summer Hummer again :) want one?

Love it-Summer Hummer! What a great ministry for the kids and the adults. Glad you enjoyed yourself and found God revealing himself in new ways.
