Creative Chaos-Family Camp

Sorry I'm late to the Chaos today over on Carlos' Ragamuffin Soul--where creative ideas are shared  every Thursday.

This is from our Family Camp 2 years ago--and we're doing it again this year.  The camp was so successfull two years ago with about 12 families that this year we are closing in on over 20 families from our church alone.  The camp is for Families (K-12th Grade and beyond).  We have joint worship sessions, breakout sessions for Parents, Children and Youth.  Another church is teaming up with us and they are bringing some of their empty nesters to come and take care of the Pre-Schoolers.  All of it is mixed with fun at the beach in the afternoon, special family times of worship and just great interaction with other families.

Our theme for 2006 was Reel Life. We asked each family to represent themselves in a Movie Poster for an ice breaker; recorded their family sayings to my Mac for a SoundBite section on words and how they sound and ended with family communion on our own in rooms.  My kids are still talking about it.

I'll blog from there July 30-Aug.3 this year.  Have you ever been to a family camp?
