The morning starts like most mornings here at kamp, the kitichies and maintenance up early getting ready for the day.
Here at K-1, we are blessed to have 53 teaching times during each two-week session of Kamp. Kampers may not even realize that they are being taught because it is being done in such fun ways. Some of the teaching positions may be a quick devotion before a meal, a K-life talk, memorizing scripture at our morning show, or a lesson at church. We are thankful for all of these different times to learn more about Jesus.
During our morning devotions, we are teaching our Kampers the walk-through the New Testament. This walk-through teaches them important things to know about the Bible and includes words paired with motions to help them remember. Every day a leadership member teaches a lesson on one part of the walk-through. They will then practice the motions and words up until that point so that by the end of the term, they will know the whole thing!
