The Cincinnati East congregation provided adult and teen volunteers to be counselors, activity staff and snack staff. The theme for the three-day event was “Geared Up for God!” and the focus scripture was Jeremiah 29:11 Jeremiah 29:11For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, said the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Each day the kids started off with a sing along from Esther’s Good Ole Funtime Band, followed by a Christian living class. After Christian living the youngsters were able to enjoy other activities such as team challenge games, science and nature, crafts and field games. At 2 p.m. the exhausted staff waved goodbye to the kids and hurried to recuperate to do it all again the next day! Overall it was a great bonding experience for the kids and adults in the congregation.
