Victorian Senior Young Revivalists Camp
Young Revivalist Senior camp kicked off early on Saturday morning, while all the young revivalists on the bus were far too awake for that time of morning the leaders on the bus contemplated what they had signed up for. There were the usual activities run including flying fox, archery, craft and canoeing – the young revivalists found new motivation through the leaders ingenious use of water balloons which improved the young revivalist performance greatly and brought everyone closer together. Some new activities were also initiated with the choice to learn and grow musically with the assistance of our gifted Pastor Justin or the option to express yourself through dance in which both partner and hip hop dancing was taught: either way there was no shortage of entertainment.
The Young Revivalists were given the option to create their own videos to show to the camp at the evening meeting. These were fantastically entertaining and allowed the kids to create their own storyline and provide us with something wildly enthralling.
Alongside the activities were the meetings which were run, by the kids for the kids. Some of the talks given by the young ones were truly inspirational with great content. It’s amazing to see the simplicity of the vision from such young people, be completely inspired by their words and see the relevance of the word to such differing ages. Another important aspect of camp is devotions where they gather into small groups with leaders and discuss the bible, testimonies, life at school and anything else that comes up. It’s a time where the young revivalists share and support each other and can ask questions of the older leaders.
It was a successful camp with everyone being well fed both spiritually and physically and no trips to the hospital having to be taken. Thank you to Daniel, Sam and Kath for running a great camp and thanks to Hans and Felicity for setting the bar so high.
