Hey Guys!! Man, it’s nice to be back! For the past week I was actually in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin for a bible camp called Covenant Harbor. They have this high school camp called Element that is really just amazing. Every time I go to that place I feel like my life truly changes. What makes it truly incredible is that while making you closer to God, they make it insanely fun. Here is a breakdown of the week.
Sunday: Arrived at camp and settled in, we had a cook out that night and I tried my first-ever turkey burger and LOVED it!!
Monday: Early morning wake-boarding-had to be on the pier no later than 6:30 AM, went to downtown Lake Geneva (tried my first ever Espresso Cooler from Caribou Coffee-and LOVED IT), and got a private little concert from the Christian band- The Least of These (Check them out, they’re pretty good!)
Tuesday: Went on the high ropes coarse and did this “Leap of Faith” thing where you climb up a pole thing that looks like and is about the same size as a telephone pole, then you jump off and try to grab onto this bar that is hanging out there (you’re connected to a wire this whole time, I SWEAR it’s completely safe!!), then we made our own campfire to cook our own hot dogs and s’mores
Wednesday: I went canoeing-quite the workout! We went ALL THE WAY across the lake!, and also that day I had this very disgusting breakfast that I’m not quite sure what it was, I think someone might’ve said it was ground wheat? Not quite sure…, we also went banana boating-which if you’re not sure what that is, watch this video. It’s pretty much where a tube that looks like a banana is being pulled by a boat while you’re all sitting on it. Really fun, but can be pretty painful! Later this night I felt like I really, really connected with God, a truly unique experience.
Thursday: We took a bunch of boats over to another beach across the lake, we dragged with us (attached to the boats), a water trampoline, a floating volleyball net, and a banana boat. That may have been the most fun thing ALL WEEK. For some unknown reason they serve lots of food on sticks. We had corn dogs (sorry, NOT a fan…), breakfast corndogs-which is a blueberry pancakes wrapped around a sausage on a stick (once again, not a fan) and lastly asian chicken on a stick (not too bad). We ended the night with a mattress race which was super fun. Its kind of like a scavenger hunt, but everybody in your cabin must have a hand on the mattress you guys are carrying throughout the camp-it looks absolutely ridiculous!
Friday: We got to sleep in! (till like 9), then we did lots of packing, swimming and more games. We got to end the week/night by going to a roller rink, which was SUPER fun!
Saturday: packed and left, a really sad day
So there you go! That was my whole week!!
I would like to give a special thanks to my lovely momma who did a wonderful job filling me in for the week, and I would also like to thank the readers for making her feel very welcome!
A recipe is comin at ya for tomorrow! Bet you can’t guess what it is!
