A Comprehensive Collection of Writings, Poems, Skits, Lyrics, and Activities to Enhance Spiritual Programs for Resident Camping
"Sophie...I'd like you and your cabin to put Chapel together for us in the morning." The camp director was not kidding.
"No problem!” she said, butterflies filling every molecule of space in Sophie's stomach. How was she ever going to pull a Chapel together with only her Bible and a small book of poems?
There really is an easy and efficient way for counselors, camp staff, and even campers to enhance spiritual programs like Chapel, Devotions, and Vespers. All you need is your Bible and one book: The Spirit of Camp, a comprehensive collection of writings, poems, skits, lyrics, and activities to enhance your camp's faith-based programs.
Teaching counselors how to organize a spiritual-based program can be a challenge for directing staff but can be a stress-producing task for even experienced staff members. Laying the spiritual groundwork is a huge responsibility but wouldn’t we all like to have a little fun in the process too? Your camp spiritual programs have the potential to be both meaningful and fun, especially when you have a little help from this very big resource,
The Spirit of Camp.
In this 400 page book you will find the encouragement to get you started, samples of how to structure each program area, and so many mix-and-match topic areas that you may never struggle for that perfect element ever again.
To order your copy of The Spirit of Camp simply point to our "Shop" page.

It was trip that took you everywhere and nowhere in particular. A few notes and you were on the dance floor. A few more and you were in your first car picking up friends for a trip to the beach. And at the end of the week, after you dropped ‘school’ at the front door you cranked up a favorite song and headed out for hamburgers and a Friday night cruise on the boulevard. Your ears connected to your hearts-call all in one simple riff. Bet you can relate. Whatever language we speak or slang we use or dialect we choose, music is the same across the board. Music moves us with its own beat and rhythm. It has its own style and expression and no matter the message, music speaks. It connects. It directs. It soothes. We share the deepest parts of our soul when we join together in song. Music is a universal conversation that charges our emotions with notes and harmony and divine sound. This soul-language offers us the mystery and wonder that keeps us talking, singing, and relating to something greater than ourselves. Dust off that guitar, crank up the radio or an old record player, or plug the Ipod into some speakers and get going. Music, like the sea, is calling!
