Camp Gramma goes to Colorado

I am finally getting around to sorting through pictures...Camp Gramma this year was held at The YMCA of the Rockies near Estes Park Colorado. It was absolutely beautiful and the weather was perfect! We had out own meeting room where we would meet, we all stayed in the same hall of the lodge. Each room had a queen bed and two bunk beds so perfect! Meals were served in the dining hall and were buffet style...the kids loved this. They had activities you could sign up for ALL the time that were free. We were always busy doing something from capture the flag, to making friendship bracelets, playing bingo or playing kickball.

My dad also paid for us all to do some big activities like zip lining, archery and rock wall climbing...SO fun!

First i want to say a big THANK YOU to my parents who spent a lot of time planning this trip, put a lot of money into this trip and also put a lot of thought into this trip. Things were shared with the kids during meeting times that i hope they will hold on to forever. They were challenged to live for God, keep their lives pure, not to fall into peer pressure and to pray for their future mate if what God has for them is to be married someday. Also were challenged that whatever field they go into (lot's of different possibilities with 24 cousins) to be the best Christian they can be in whatever they do. Our camp theme was "following God's leading".

Our camp verse was Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding
In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path.

So...gonna have to divide this up into a couple of post and the pictures are in no particular order but here is a peek into the week...
