Introducing CAMP with the videographers of week 2

Although I’m still learning how to implement this new format and how to run my interest group, this past week resulted in some exciting creations. This short segment was completely camper inspired and nearly completely camper orchestrated and filmed. One of the girls in the group had the idea of having a single camper say a single word and then editing multiple shots together to complete a sentence. This idea evolved into thinking of words that we felt were pertinent components of this camp and having pairs or even groups around camp shouting a word related to what they were doing. This was the first we really collaborated as video team of sorts and it was exciting to see the girls work together and follow my direction.

It was also inspiring to see how much the kids that come here value this place, for it’s community, fun, nature and so on, and desire to shout it out to others. This is good news, much like the gospel, and we shouldn’t be ashamed to exclaim about something or someone we love. God has provided a way for this camp to thrive and in turn this camp provides a way for God to be proclaimed.

“What I tell you now in the darkness, shout abroad when daybreak comes. What I whisper in your ear, shout from the housetops for all to hear!”
