CampOne - The Best Week of My Life


If Camp One were to be described in one word I don't even think the word amazing would be appropriate. The prayers of church community have definitely affected the record number of people at camp as well as its outcome.

Praise God that those prayers were heard and answered!

Camp One was jam packed with great activities ranging from intense soccer matches to mind boggling riddles. There was something for everyone to enjoy and free-time sessions were a must!

The leaders of camp welcomed everyone with open arms and happily answered any questions we had. They were more than just leaders; they were people who we call friends and role models of Christ.

Damo's and Deac’s talks really helped to both introduce Christ and to grow Christians in their faith. The talks challenged us to be the light and salt of the world, to pursue reconciliation quickly, to let the gospel be our motivation for illumination, and to not worry about our lives, because God's love controls every second of it.

Camp was a time where relationships were made and strengthened. Where year groups were brought together to become a loving Christ centered community. And a time where the lost were found in Christ.

In conclusion I think it would be appropriate to share my best experience at camp, which was undoubtedly the last night. The more the night went on, the more amazing it became. 

Seeing the Year 12 version of Everything by Lifehouse, hearing Sarah's emotional testimony, Damo's amazing talk on worrying, and the extended worship where everyone embraced each other in unity as we sung praise to our awesome God.

But the moment that cut me down to tears of happiness was when a friend I held close to my heart met God and accepted Jesus as her Lord and Saviour.   This is reason why Camp One produced the best week of my entire life.
