Update from Tiger Pause Summer Camp! We've had a blessed first half of camp and are still going strong!
On the first day of camp, boys played games of basketball and hockey
as well as some intense rounds of four square. The girls, in the
meantime, took part in some team building activities and expressed their
creativity through bead making. The kids were immediately exposed to
the value of sharing. The boys and girls separated for a while and
engaged in these different activities that helped them understand the
values of taking turns and working together.
The next day, we saw our kids serve the community by walking through
the neighborhoods of Beaver Falls and picking up trash off
the streets. The morning began at the Downtown Center with devotions and
physical fitness activities. The kids and counselors spent time in prayer for the
upcoming day and learning what it means to serve their community.
Jeremy Kiger led exercises afterwards and got everybody’s blood flowing
with jumping jacks and push-ups.
Once the kids were all ready to go, the groups hit the neighborhoods
and cleaned the sidewalks and alleyways. After an hour of hard work,
the group enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Downtown Center
provided by Mrs. Davis. Following the meal, the kids and counselors
headed down to the Berkshire building to watch Madagascar 2 and munch on
some fresh popcorn.
One of the counselors, Sarah Whalen, was excited to see the kids learn about caring for God’s creation and being good stewards
of what He has given them. In a small way, they were able to see what
giving back to their community looks like.
We have seen God’s hand at work in the
lives of these kids! We really look forward to the all the other blessings
He has in store for Tiger Pause during camp this summer!
