Fantastic Friday!

Today was an amazing last day of camp! The morning started out with each cabin checking out and getting one last chance to buy things from the Canteen. Then after brunch, we had a closing Devotional to help wrap up the week. Then, it was time for the Closing Ceremonies for the Olympics.

Since Ellen’s D’Generous Sheep won, they had the ability to vote one staff member into the lake survivor style. After all the votes were counted, there was a tie between Jesse and Madi. Despite the chanting for both to go into the lake, we followed the established rule that only one staff member is to be thrown in. Therefore, we opened up the voting to all of camp via a scream vote.

As you can clearly hear, the vote for Jesse was quite overwhelming so he was thrown into the lake. However, he got his revenge and dumped in the two Olympic staff members from the winning team, Wes and Ellen, as he flipped the canoe partway out to the raft.

After retrieving all three soaking wet staff members from the lake, it was time to start our closing worship. We had some great high energy songs, and even got a closing message from Jesse on what it means to leave a holy and perfect place and to reenter our regular lives.

After chapel finished, it was time for cabins to say goodbye and for the campers to depart.

It was a great last week of campers for us here at Luther Dell, we’re going to miss them so much over the next 51 weeks!
