I am back from a week of ministering at The Greatest Place On Earth: Life For Youth Camp. I have included most of the links to the videos I used as well as the worship songs so you can download them for yourself. I have also included a short video of what to do now the you are back from your camp. Have a great rest of the summer and a great school year. Stay Fired Up!

Forst let me say I love you guys! You were a great group this year and God did some amazing things in our midst and in our hearts. I hope the week was a powerful for you as it was for me. As I promised here is a bunch of the stuff I used this week like the Bad Evangelism video and the video, our Alabama Disaster relief. Oh, and even the Oliver video clip
I am heading off to our summer camp next week and I thought I’d pass along a few things I do that make my life easier:
I meet individually with students who I think might cause me a problem. I challenge them to step and lead or give them a job for the week, such as watching out for younger students to make sure they are not picked on.
I over communicate with parents about any changes.
I make sure every kid has signed our camp standards covenant
I think of a surprise or bonus I can spring on the kids that week. It could be as simple as candy bars or free t-shirts.
I make sure my Pastor has a count and a list of campers so he can pray for us individually
I meet one final time with parents right before the trip for about 10 minutes to challenge them to prepare a home where they can live out the things they have committed in their hearts to Christ.
Do you have a list of things you run through to make your camp run smoother? Share them with us.
