I’m Back!

Posted on

Wow! So, let me just say that I missed all of my readers!

But, I had an awesome time and experience at camp! I love camp so much!

I’m already ready to go back.

I got to pour out the love of Christ on little girls week after week. There is absolutely nothing to compare that feeling to in the world!

I got to read bedtime stories to them and give them hugs right before they went to sleep.

There are so many experiences that should be experienced and working at a camp is one of them!

Those little girls loved it and so did I!


I also missed my blog!

So, Now that I’m back here are a few things that you can look forward to.

  • One more camper quotes
  • Staffer quotes from this summer
  • Beaversharks!
  • Did Ya Know? Will resume on Thursday!
  • Book Reviews  (In perfect Time and a few others)

  • A  movie review (Hopefully! cross your fingers!)
  • 40 shakes of cookout challenge- adding to that after trying some more shakes.
  • Songs of the heart! (songs I love and adore not always heart touching songs)
  • Many more post as I think of them


I can’t wait to get started!

Camper Quotes!

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?”

Me: “Worship”

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?”

Me: “Nope”

Camper: “Do you have a boyfriend?”

Me: “Nope”

Camper: “Do you want one?”

Me: “uhhh…”

Camper stands up


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.
