Camp Time!

It is that time of year!
Tomorrow will find me at Baptist Hill Assembly camp grounds for the annual Day Camp!
Day camp is a one day event for the youngest campers of the season. These youngsters are way too little for most children's camps and are too young to overnight without their parents, but have this day to begin their experiences at Baptist Hill.

In a couple of weeks (June 16-17), I'll be back to Baptist Hill for Intro to Camping. Intro to Camping is an overnight (Fri-Sat) camp for kids that are just one or two years away from the week long children's camp. They get a little more of the camp experience (including a night in the cabins) before coming for a week long camp.

Monday morning I have a magic show planned for our church's daycare, Wee Hope. While I'm performing for the kids of Wee Hope, our kids from 3rd -8th grade will be getting ready to leave for Tricounty Baptist Association Children and Jr High camps. I'll be dropping in on them next Wednesday and Thursday for Bible Stories with Pastor John.
As an added bonus to the coming camp days, I get to preach at a small church on Sunday morning!

It's just under 50 miles (one way) to the camp grounds and just over 50 miles (round trip) to the church where I'll preaching, so I'll get the added bonus of getting to ride a few hundred miles on the motorcycle in the coming week.
Funny thing about motorcycle mileage -- it always seems to be farther coming home. Sometimes it takes me an hour longer on the way home! (especially when there are rural roads to ride!)

Today will be a nice day and I may get a few miles in before finding a place to watch the Cards/Cubs afternoon baseball game. Both teams have been playing below their talent level recently. Hopefully the rivalry will inspire better play over the weekend.

Time to get busy!
Have a great weekend,

John <><
