Our Heroic Adventure Begins!

Let It Begin! Base Camp 2013 – HEROES!

Heroes are adventurous, and today was a great beginning to our week of adventure! We started off our evening with some song and an introduction to the League of Really Really Good Guys and their quest to stop Dr. Evil Vonevilville. I was so relieved when Mr. Fuzzy Bear was rescued. Do you think our superheroes will be able to stop our villain from getting all the Rosetta Stones? We will have to wait and see.

While it is lots of fun to talk about superheroes with special powers and even imagine having our own, during our teaching time we talked about a real hero in the Bible. Do you remember his name? If you said John the Baptist, you are quite right. We learned a lot about his life and how he lived. Can you share some things about his life with your family? Where did he live? What did he eat? How about, did God have purpose for his life? What was it? Seems like a lot of questions, but I know that you all are good listeners! We ended talking about the letter “H”. “H” stands for humble or humility. John the Baptist was very humble. His goal was to point to Jesus rather than himself.

Game time was a different adventure for everyone depending on age. It was filled with obstacles, relays, superheroes, and the desperate need to avoid touching the kryptonite but get it where it needed to go! Check out some of our fun!

The evening ended with our Hawaiian SuperDuo literally flying in! I don’t think I have ever seen that happen at Base Camp before! As a SuperDuo, their goal was to help someone. How do you think that went? I’m not sure the little old lady was any better off after their help than when they started.
