Wow! What a week. We had such a tremendous time during our first week of camp. At least 19 people made a decision to trust Christ as their Savior. That’s 25% of our campers:) Praise the Lord.
Thank you for being a part. Thank you for your prayers. So many of you were involved in helping Camp Rhino get started. I can’t thank you enough. I also can’t believe our first week of camp is over.
Our first camp was made up of 76 campers, 9 counselors, and 21 staff members. We were well beyond capacity but were able to make everything work. We definitely know our areas of weakness and will be working in the coming months to get the camp ready for a higher capacity of campers. Our goal is to have things set up for around 120 campers.
Other than salvation decisions, the most exciting thing during camp was seeing the growth and maturing of our counselors. These young people training for ministry did an outstanding job counseling and mentoring our teen campers. They grew by leaps and bounds over night. Almost every one of them had an opportunity to lead someone to Christ, and are catching on to the importance of personal discipleship.
Thank you for your prayers and financial support. I believe your investment will see returns for many years. One camp down, and many more to come:)
