Canoe Trip with Students

The last week of June we put together a camp for the students in our Presbytery (churches in our denomination in a geographic area, in this case, Kansas). We played games, canoed 4 miles, rafted 9 miles, took part in the ultimate relay race, hiked, volleyball, swimming, worshiped God in song, studied His Word, etc. While it requires a great deal of preparation the trip itself has become the most fun event of our summer two years running. We’ve pulled a few pictures to share if you click on the keep reading link.

This is me with Cameron, Chris, Joey, Zach, a dog named Marco with about 20 turtles in our boat. We caught the turtles by swimming up to them slowly and pouncing on them. Sometimes we would put on goggles and chase them down underwater which was a real rush.

We picked the dog up along the  way, he kept following us and after telling the guys that he could not get in our boat I gave in. See the dog tried to follow us through rapids and started coughing from inhaling water, I felt bad and let him in. I then insisted we not name the thing, his name is Marco. Marco was promptly returned to his owners by the camp director upon our return.
