Redberry Bible Camp - Summer 2021

We are so blessed by how God was at work at Redberry Bible Camp this summer.

Our theme for 2021 was, “ Above all Else”. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need. Matthew 6: 33 (New Living translation)

When we were allowed to run overnight camps, on May 27th, we as a staff realized that this was an opportunity to exercise faith. I used Hebrews 11 as a devotional at the staff meeting when we started planning for overnight camps. We knew that we would really, really need to rely on God. We also knew that God owns this camp and that He is more concerned about its success than we are. 

So, we thought about our theme verse and claimed the promise that God would give us everything we need and he did. At the start of camps, we still needed male cabin leaders. God provided in incredible ways. We were able to see God at work all summer.

We were blessed with excellent speakers who clearly shared the gospel message. Everyone had their own style, some used many props and object lessons, others simply shared from their hearts. The message of salvation was very clearly presented and 51 campers, that we know of, made commitments to Jesus. What excitement there was when cabin leaders shared how one or more campers in their cabins made a commitment to Jesus. We had 376 campers attend this summer. This is less than half as many campers as in 2019, when 86 campers made commitments to Jesus.

Family camp was well attended, with 14 families enjoying the event. 

We were also blessed by several sets of grandparents who came to volunteer in maintenance and the kitchen. 

We enjoyed health and safety all summer with no major injuries and good health for campers and staff.

During the off season, we will be working on many projects around camp and planning ahead for what we pray will be a full camp season in 2022.
