# 9: Many Awesome Activities!
By: Forest Horn
J-Serve Student, 4.12 Leadership Training Program Graduate, former camper
As a previous camper and senior counselor at Joy El Camps and Retreats, I have seen a lot of kids, including myself when I was a kid, having the time of their lives participating in different activities at camp. Whether it’s riding the Go-Carts with their best friend, going down the Zipline and conquering their fear of heights, or creating a skit to perform for all the campers, kids are always having fun and connecting with their friends at camp.
The activities are designed for everyone, from sports, games, arts and crafts, swimming, and the list could go on. Nothing beats seeing a kid come off of the Zipline or Giant Swing with a huge smile on their face, instantly wanting to go again or seeing them having fun together playing Mini Golf or Gaga Ball.
Activities at camp are more than just fun for the kids, they are relationship builders. Kids can connect over the things they like and make friends through all the activities they participate in. All they do becomes even more fun because they are doing the activities with friends.
For me personally, I always loved camp because of all it has to offer for fun activities and it is one of the reasons I wanted to go back time and time again. If you want to have a week full of fun and friends, come to camp.
So don’t miss out on your chance to get outdoors and do all these activities at summer camp. Now is the time to register for your Christian summer camp experience. Learn about Summer Camp
