First we dropped the Air Conditioning, then we got rid of the electricity and the indoor plumbing.
Don’t worry, though, we kept the toilet paper!
Let me tell you a bit about WILDERNESS CAMP. It is located on the grounds of Whispering Winds Bible Camp, yet it is remote enough to feel like you are in the wilderness! It's in a very scenic area above the obstacle course with a grand view.
The area is rough, yet we have cleared a network of trails all around the property. There is a good sized camp site all ready to go. Since we will be in the woods, be prepared for ticks, chiggers, and poison ivy. While we are trying to "rough it" we're not trying to make life miserable, so we do have a relatively comfortable OUTHOUSE!
What will your day consist of? I'm glad that you asked! Camp will be EXPERIENTIAL. That means you will be involved in most of the things that go on. You'll help with meal preparation and clean up, you'll be learning some basic camp skills, you'll be learning to work as a group, and we believe that you will have FUN! In addition, we'll have the other things that make up camp: devotions, singing, camp pastor and missionary, Bible Memory Time, and lots of fun activities. You will have the opportunity to do some things that resident campers won't do! Can you handle that?!?
This year our theme is “Draw Near to God”. We will learn how to draw nearer to God and seek a closer relationship with Him. Our speaker will focus on that theme and our activities will also relate to it.
The Bible Memory Time verses will be James 4:7-17, Psalm 32 and Psalm 19. Verses may be memorized from the King James, New King James, New American Standard, or New International Versions. You will need your own Bible in that version for Bible Memory Time. Work on it ahead as there will also be time set aside each day to say the verses.
Wilderness is about helping you become aware of how much you truly love all other things you take for granted every day.
It is adventure, and it’s like nothing else around.
Experience God and His creation with us this summer!
