Camp Out 2006

We are currently getting ready for our third installment of The Naming Project Summer Camp. Our first one was in 2004. That's the one that was filmed and turned into a documentary for the masses. We were hoping that we would get a bounce in registrations due to the film. Right now, we are setting at 10 registrations. That's not a bad number, by any stretch, but we were honestly hoping for more.

However, it is exciting that most of these kids are new campers to our program. Hopefully, we can grow from this group into the future. We also have a bunch of qualified adults to work with the kids. When we first started, we only had the four of us. Now, we have 8 adults to work with kids. It's not necessary for only 10 kids, but it is nice to divide the labor across a bunch of adults.

I always enjoy my time at camp. I spend a little time out in a canoe, just being with nature. I like the staff and the kids who work there. In fact, many of the kids who will be at the camp are the kids I traveled to San Antonio with earlier this summer. It will be good to reconnect. Many of them know me from my camp experience.

I'm impatient for it to start. I still need to wash clothes and pack, but I want to just BE THERE. It's always exciting when the kids arrive. I'm going to be on the island for a week. It will be fun, and I'll have a good time!

Ross,
I hope you have a wonderful summer camp. I'll be looking forward to hearing all about it when you return. I too have had a nice summer - but too little blogging. It is good to have this quiet afternoon and touch again the world of others who's lives give expression to the love of Christ.

Ross, many blessings on the week of camp. It is a pleasure to see this ministry grow, and it is fun to see how you grow into this ministry yourself. Paz
