City Camp Week 7 - Extreme Weather


This past week we took a break from the hot, dry weather we’ve had and talked about snow, rain, storms, tornadoes, and hurricanes. We had about 70 campers join us each day and they learned that God is all-powerful as we talked about stories in the Bible when God has used the weather to show His glory. Campers were so excited to learn the memory verse for the week:
“The Lord gives me light and saves me.
Why should I fear anyone?
The Lord is my place of safety.
Why should I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1
The kids were creative and energetic in their songs, raps, and skits to help them remember the verse. We celebrated with our teen crew who has been working hard each week and took first place in the performance on Friday!
Once again, a huge shout-out to the Vivion Road YMCA and Sherwood Bible Church for letting us swim! Our younger campers enjoyed a visit to Safety Street where they got to learn about weather safety and pet safety. They had a blast hanging out at Shawnee Mission Park too! Another highlight of the week was a visit from KCTV5’s Chief Meteorologist, Chris Suchan, who shared the story of how he became a weatherman, showed videos of hurricanes and tornadoes, and shared how the kids can stay safe in extreme weather. Thanks so much for visiting City Camp! We ended the week with a fantastic trip to Science City at Union Station— thanks for letting us come explore!
