Church camp 2013...this year our camp was held at Glenroy Lodge in Hororata, about an hour and three quarters' drive from us towards Christchurch. The campsite facilities were lovely although we were a little concerned during the planning stages about 70 campers sharing two showers...glad to report that the site is better equipped and did have an extra ablution block not featured on our original map ;) There is only one main hall, so eating and meeting happened in the same venue which meant shifting chairs and tables before and after every session. No matter though, there was a large enough contingent of males in the 10-25 year range to get it done quickly each time. Our speaker, Joe Fleener, soothed our ears with his American accent while challenging our hearts from the book of Philippians. We had five sessions over the course of three days, with a lot of free time and great eating in between times. The teenagers particularly appreciated his ministry and picked his brain during a spontaneous Q&A time after one evening session.
