HOPE-- More Than Meets the Eye

Rachel spent the week at Winshape Camp again this summer. This is her third year
at camp. Her past two were here and here.
On the first day she ran into lots of friends and she was pretty excited about that. The kids are
divided into groups- Ocean, Safari or Alpine. Rachel was in the Alpine group this year. Rachel
was in three activities- Sew Much Fun, Fast Food and Gymnastics.
On Friday, the camp lets parents and siblings attend camp for the day and see
what the campers have been learning all week. The first class was
Sew Much Fun-- and Rachel learned the basics of sewing. 
This was the first summer, that I let Rebecca come to camp and she
loved it! We spent time sewing on buttons.
Rachel and Meghan were in Sewing together. They have known each other
since they were three years old and have been to Winshape each summer.
We moved on to the next class- Fast Food. This class taught the kids how  to
cook basic meals and snacks. We got to make rice krispy treats. Rachel was
happy to have her Abuela visiting at camp too.
The last class was gymnastics. Rachel loved it and so did
Rebecca. She did a great job walking the balance beam.
Rebecca loved being part of the class and participating with
the big girls.

Rachel went to Bible study time with her group and we went to
watch a video about Winshape Ministries, hear some speakers talk about
the week, stuff like that....... Then all the campers came and we sang and prayed.
Then it was time to go home!!
The theme for camp was HOPE and the Bible verse was
2 Corinthians 4:18.
So thankful that Rachel was able to go to camp again this summer. She
always makes new friends, learns fun stuff and spends the week learning
more about Jesus. Can't wait until Rebeca is old enough to go. Next year,
Rachel is thinking about going to Winshape Overnight Camp !!
"so we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is
seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
2 Corinthians 4:18 NIV
