Camp Talk

I had a good number of conversations this past week about our District Family Camp. Like many camps, the attendance has decreased over the past 10 years or so. Since our church loves and supports camp, we wonder why. But more important than the 'why' question is the question of what (if anything) could be done to return the camp to its former popularity. So I have some questions for YOU:

1. Do you attend a camp? If not, why?
2. What is the best thing about your camp?
3. What is the worst thing about your camp?

1. Yes
2. Seeing friends, hearing good preaching (some years)
3. There seems to be nothing strategic about it. it's something we do because we love to do it and it makes us feel good.

I do not attend. We don't have one...? I don't actually have a district either.

The only reason I've ever heard of a district family camp is because of you.

Ah, Camp. I love it.

The best thing is that I'm not distracted by my job or the internet or my cell phone. I can focus on God and on the other people who are there. Some really good conversations can occur. Some earnest praying can get done.

The worst thing about my camp is that sometimes there are power struggles among the adults there, and sometimes they make rules that I think are silly, like "caps must be worn with the bills facing the front."
