Judging by the looks on the kids’ faces, this past weekend proved to be another successful Winter Retreat here at High Point Camp. Ed Dunlop and his friend Andy both entertained the Junior Campers and challenged them with a message from God’s Word during each of the three sessions Friday evening, Saturday morning, and Saturday afternoon. The campers took advantage of the fresh snow we received on Friday morning anytime they weren’t in a session, in a group game, or eating pizza. We had a rippin’ fire out by the tube hill for them to warm there little mitts up, but most of them were having too much fun to even realize they couldn’t feel their hands anymore. We’re praising God for another safe weekend, and thanking him for continuing to provide great snow! After all, what’ s a “Winter Retreat” with no snow?! Please continue to pray for the two remaining Winter Retreats in February.
Anyway, new for Summer 2011, High Point Adventure Camp will be stepping it up (there’s another one) with the addition of a Zip Line Canopy Tour and High Ropes Course. In case you didn’t know, a Canopy Tour is a series of cables and platforms between 10 and 60 feet off of the ground. Adventure campers will be harnessed to a pulley that rides the cable and will “zip” from platform to platform through the “canopy” of trees through which the course is built. There are 5 zip lines, with a combined length of over 1400 feet! Additionally, in the middle of the course, there is a “cat walk” that spans about 70 feet!
The High Ropes Course is an obstacle course containing 9 elements built 30-50 feet above the ground. Adventure campers will use a zip line to enter and exit the course, so you don’t even have to “climb” to get to the course!
Don’t miss out on the adrenaline rush of lifetime, sign up for 2011 Adventure Camp today!
