The boys and girls of our residential program experienced an incredible summer trip thanks to the generosity of our donors! Because of your support to sponsor the summer enrichment program, their summer wrapped with two unforgettable trips.
The theme for the boys this summer was Man Up and their camping trip put everything they learned all summer into practice. Not only did they eat military rationed portions that they were in charge of themselves, but when faced with the challenge of the mountain and elements they knew that they had to finish what they started…and they did!
The girls’ summer themes changed weekly. Each week contained a service project, recreational activity, and Bible studies that went along with each theme. The last week, Princess Week, was incorporated into their summer trip to Disney World. While enjoying “the happiest place on earth,” the girls learned the importance on focusing on inward beauty, building Godly character, and that a woman who fears the Lord will be praised. (Proverbs 31)
All in all, it was a summer filled with challenges followed by victories. Thanks again to the donors who made the summer program and trip a reality for the kids. It really was a summer rich with life lessons and one to remember.
