Short and sweet today, and that's because of my time crunch rather than a lack of great things to blog about. The dance was a blast. We held it in one-third of the indoor gym portion of Camp Center. At first, we weren't super-enthusiastic, citing the tradition of using the Dining Hall, but with tornadoes to the south and thunderstorms to the west, we figured having the dance in the severe weather shelter wouldn't be such a bad idea. And it wasn't! It was a truly great dance and everyone liked that space better than the dining hall. So much for tradition.
I'm sitting here alone for a brief moment after Quest, our all-day and into-evening "prayer" journey in which campers and JCs are really encouraged to be open to amazing growth moments in their faith. I ran a station I'd not run since becoming Dean of Week I, but which I miss dearly after having done it at least four times at other weeks of LYFE Camp. It gave me a chance to connect with each camper individually and I surprised myself - I knew EVERY person's name! And here I thought I was getting old.
Quest did it's job for the people who were open to something happening. I have yet to connect with my fellow SCs about their stations but I'm excited to hear what they have to say.
My apologies, dear reader, but I have to change and head to evening worship. More tomorrow.
