β€œIn the beginning it started with a very big bang (SHEBANG!)” If you have a third, fourth or fifth grader, this line from our theme song for Camp Prism 2017 might sound familiar! This summer we took 37 children, including some of our IHN friends, to our annual four-day sleepaway camp at Bonclarken Conference Center where we celebrated the fortieth session of Camp Prism along with eight other CBF churches. Our theme for the week was The Power of Our Beginnings, so we learned about the creation stories and how God still creates in our lives. The kids loved campfire time, crafts, swimming, group games, Bible study groups, worship, canoeing, as well as the chance to go airborne on the zip line, the swing and the Leap of Faith. And of course they always enjoy grabbing a snack (or two or more!) at the Nibble Nook.

Many thanks to our fearless chaperones: Bruce Brown, Stuart Jones, Leigh Joye, Rick Joye, Tony McDade, Ruth Kennedy, Frank Smith and United Ministry interns, Emma Wetenhall and Meredith Dixon!
