PEAK Experience! - Kids Camp 2012
By Rand Clark
Larkspur Colo.- What do four days of fun, excitement, 297 kids, worship and Bible teaching equal? PEAK Kids Camp 2012!
From times of inspired worship, led by Ryan Durfee (The Bridge Church) to challenging messages from Scripture by Camp Pastor James Wagstaff (North Metro Church) children from 15 churches across Colorado gathered at the Ponderosa Retreat and Conference Center.
“Worship!” said Katie, when asked what the best part of her PEAK experience was. “I just love singing and learning about God.”
“The best part of camp was the Choice time!” exclaimed Noah, one camper who spent his afternoons scaling the climbing wall, going on a hayride, playing 9 holes of putt-putt golf and doing leather crafting.
Campers and adults alike were challenged to consider what it meant to really trust in the Lord.
In all, 25 campers made first time decisions to follow Christ and four more recommitted their life to Him!
Proverbs 3:5&6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths.” (HCSB)
Pastor Wagstaff taught the kids that, “we can trust God because He made them; that we can trust God because He has everything in His hands; that we can trust God because He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins; that we can trust God because He has given us His Holy Spirit; and finally, that we can trust the Bible, God’s inerrant Word.”
“When you bring kids in, out of their setting, and immerse them here for 72 hours with the Lord Jesus Christ; their hearts are softened, they start to listen” said Greg Teal, PEAK Kids Camp Leadership Team Member (Vista Grande Baptist Church). “God was talking to kids and talking to sponsors!”
Two sponsors expressed the movement of God in their own lives; one sensing a call to missions work and the other to Church Planting.
“The best part of camp was that I accepted Jesus into my life!” said Owen, one of the PEAK campers.
