we near the closing family K-life tonight, and as closing ceremonies
will conclude kamp tomorrow, we must first recognize just how important
this weekend is! The Friday of family K-life is a pivotal day for all
kampers because it is the last day that they can work to achieve a K
award. K awards are similar to scouting ranks in the fact that so many
different skills are tested, and any K award shows a kamper has worked
hard and been disciplined. K points determine K-awards, and also
determine which tribe has won for the term!
lets put all that aside! Lets talk about when the parentals arrive! The
parents arrive around 6 pm to eat at the family picnic. Then after
everyone is full, families typically take a tour of kamp then head to
family K-life! Family K-life is one of the best opportunities for
families to see what a K-life is like! IFamily K-life is also a
wonderful time to come together as a family and worship together! Also,
President of Kanakuk Kamps Joe White joins us at family K-life and
always has a special presentation for K-1 families! So parents as you
are heading this way for family K-life you have a lot to look forward
to, BUT, there is also closing ceremonies on Saturday morning!
ceremonies on Saturday morning is such an incredible time just like
family K-life but it is filled with other awesome things like
affirmation through different klinic awards, trip awards, and all sorts
of other recognitions. Saturday morning also includes cabin awards which
is very often a parents favorite time of the weekend. This cabin award
time is such a cool time for parents to hear how their kampers have been
and also for kampers to be affirmed and encouraged!
That is very quick sneak peak into a closing weekend, but nothing can beat experiencing it for yourself! We are always excited for parents to join us in worship, see their little nuggets again, and also share in affirming how God has gifted their children!
