Kids Passport Camp Day 1

9 kids, 3 adults, 4 days after a 5 hour drive we're in Crossville to start a 'Revolution'! 

Each day you'll get to read what our campers are experiencing. Enjoy!


Will Wright: I learned that Jesus dressed as a regular person and flipped tables and people still cared for him. My favorite part of the day was the rec party!

Catherine Kellett: Today was really fun. We got to ride in a big white van. First we played with walkie talkies then we told creepy campfire stories for the rest of the time. Then we got to play Gaga Ball! After that we went to celebration, Bible study, worship, worship response, dinner, and then we had an awesome rec party.


Today has been a great day! Everyone was happy and ready to head out this morning. I don't think there was a quirt moment on the van but I so enjoyed hearing your kids laugh and share stories. They are such smart kids that think about things in ways you wouldn't imagine!

Day 1 at CampOnce we arrived at Passport we dove right into this year's theme: Revolution. Today's theme word was FLIP. Our Bible story for the day was Jesus flipping the tables in the temple. In our small group we looked at some Old Testament passages and compared them to what Jesus said. As one camper said, "What? That's completely different!" I think they got the point!

After the Rev'd Up Rec Party this crowd is ready for bed. I am looking forward to seeing what amazing things happen in your kids' lives the rest of this week. Love and Peace,Mary
