From Brandy Stykes:
For over 80 years, Appalachian Christian Camp (ACC) has been providing a summer camp where students can learn about Jesus Christ, experience the Father’s love, and enjoy the beautiful creation God has made. This summer, ACC introduced a new program: Junior Wilderness Camp for students entering grades 4 – 6. I had the opportunity to be the program director for the first week of Junior Wilderness, and it was an adventure!
Thirteen campers, three counselors, and I spent a week experiencing God’s creation firsthand. We climbed the rock wall, hiked the trails of Unicoi, explored a wild cave in Bluff City, rafted the waters of the Nolichucky, relaxed on a boat at Watauga Lake, and rode horses in Jonesborough. We slept outside, cooked our meals over a campfire, and enjoyed worship by the creek. I have been blessed enough to have done all of these things before, but it was so exciting to see them enjoy these activities for the first time! Our week’s theme was built around knowing God as our Love, our Creator, our Savior, our Friend, and our Example. I think we all learned something about who He is and how much He loves us through both our lessons and creation, which is why wilderness camp is so amazing.
Thanks for supporting ACC and its mission to show students the love of Christ.
