It’s been a busy first night here at Wapo! After registration, campers met with their cabins, ate dinner, played icebreaker games, and had their first Bible study. Afterwards, they were introduced to all of the camp staff (Counselors, First Aid, Waterfront, Canteen, and Art Shop). Next, the campers participated in Alpha (4th-6th grade) or Beta (7th-9th grade) Activity. We ended the night with a campfire… and now it’s time for cabin devotions, and hopefully lights out!
Welcome to camp! The staff sang Radical God to welcome our campers for the week. ♫…Don’t you know He’s a radical God?…♫

The Alpha campers participated in Alpha activity, which was a human scavenger hunt! There were various categories that each cabin had to ‘find’ or ‘create’ such as ‘photo poses!
This was one of our silliest ‘photo poses’!
I think they like his mustache!
It was a close one, but Crossfire 303/ 304 won the human scavenger hunt with a performance of “Let It Go”!
In Beta Activity, each cabin had to race to unwrap a clue, which led to their first station! The first cabin to go to each station and complete each activity, gets to eat lunch 2nd at every meal this week!
One of the activities at Beta Activity, was putting vaseline on your nose and moving cotton balls from one container to another using your nose!
Another part of Beta Activity was a water balloon relay! These guys were careful not to pop it!
In the end, Antioch won the Beta Activity! Congrats, Antioch!
Isn’t the Amazing Race a TV show? What does it have to do with Jesus? Well, our skit tonight at campfire introduced the #AmazingRace theme for the week! Throughout the week we will be talking about the Amazing Race that Jesus calls us to run!
Hebrews 12:1-3, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the RACE marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”
