Camp is one of my favorites places to be each and every summer!
Campers are such a joy to be around especially when they don’t realize exactly what they are telling you.
1.) This happened during a mother/daughter mini camp during Bible study.
Camper: “My mom and me go to a temporary church.”
Sounds like this church doesn’t last very long!
It’s a good thing she really meant Contemporary church.
Her mother corrected her after she had finished laughing at her daughter’s blunder.
2.) This happened during GA/Acteen mini camp while I was greeting new campers as they arrived in my cabin.
Camper: “What are we doing after dinner?”
Camper: “What are we doing after worship?”
Me: “Talent show”
Camper’s eyes widen
Camper: “But I don’t have a talent!”
It’s a good thing for this camper that our talent show was only for the staffers!
3.) This one happened during a GA/Acteen mini camp right after we had finished worship and we were just about to begin our talent show.
Camper: “Miss Brittany are you married?”
Camper: “Do you have a boyfriend?”
Camper: “Do you want one?”
Camper stands up
Camper: “ARE THERE ANY SINGLE GUYS HERE!”
Me: “SSSHHH! There aren’t any guys here it’s a girls camp!”
Camper sits back down
Camper: “Ok then give me your address and I’ll send you pictures of some guys”
Me: “You already have my address.”
Camper: “I know the perfect guy for you!”
I should be worried that a 12 year old wants to set me up.
4.) This happened during the GAs/Acteens mini camp during our bible study.
Me: “Jesus is going to come back the same way he left. That is what the Bible says.”
Camper: “He’s gonna come back dead!?”
It’s a very good thing Jesus rose from the dead before he ascended into heaven. OR else she would have been right but, I did my best to explain to her just what I meant.
Keep an eye out for more of these post!
These all happened during one week of two mini camps.
I can’t wait to see what they will say next.
