Last week, 114 campers and staff at the North Carolina Preteen Camp enjoyed the first North American camp of 2017. Each day began with Christian Living classes that focused on the theme for this year: the Book of Exodus. They learned about the Ten Commandments as well as the ten plagues and the crossing of the Red Sea. Activities supported this theme, as the children learned songs about the Exodus in music class and reviewed the Commandments in arts and crafts. In addition, the campers enjoyed archery, ultimate frisbee, flag football, photography, orienteering, swimming, and paddle-boarding. It was a great start to the camp season. A special thanks both to those who served this year and to all who prayed for the success of the camp!—Mark Sandor

Wow! How quickly the spring has gone by and we are just a few weeks from Preteen Camp in Missouri. We are busy finishing all the details concerning staff assignments and activities and everything indicates another fantastic year for the LYP Missouri Preteen Camp. If you have not yet applied to camp please do as soon as possible for June 1 is that last day to apply, after that we will not be taking applications except for emergencies only. We still have room for more campers and staff so get your application in ASAP.
Our schedule this year on Sunday, July 2 calls for Staff to arrive at 11:00 am for setup, with campers to begin arriving at 2:00 pm. The first Day of Camp normally seems like chaos as everyone is busy getting the camp set up and in order for the week. Once we are set-up then begins a well-organized pattern of daily activities packed with fun and fellowship.
Our theme this year will focus on the Ten Commandments and on how they express the Mind of our Great God and how they help us emulate our Savior, Jesus.
All the staff is looking forward toward another great year of providing the best camping experience for our pre-teen campers. See you soon in Knob Noster!
The North Carolina Preteen Camp is rapidly approaching! We look forward to kicking off the U.S. camps this year, from June 11-16. If you are planning on attending, please turn in your application soon. Our deadline for staff applications is May 15 and for camper applications is June 1. We hope to see you there!—Mark Sandor
