WEWOKA, OKLA. – April 22-24 found Adventurers and their families from across Oklahoma gathered at Wewoka Woods Adventist Camp for the Oklahoma Conference’s second annual Adventurer Family Camp.
After a long year of not being able to get together, it was especially joyful to see and be with other Adventurer families. There were a total 10 of Adventurer clubs that participated with a total of 185 children, parents and staff.
Because the forecast showed heavy showers, the clubs set up their tents in the auditorium. The weather was so bad at our first Adventurer Family Camp two years ago that tents were destroyed in the wind and rain. We did not want to have a repeat of that situation! Sure enough, the rains came Friday night, but everyone was safe and dry and warm and able to worship together.
Our Adventurer Bible Experience took place Sabbath morning with seven clubs participating. Much like the Pathfinder Bible Experience, but geared to the Adventurer level, our teams studied Genesis 1-13 (excluding chapter 10).
Worship was led by Oklahoma Concerence Youth Director Daniel Ortega, who talked about ants and emphasized Proverbs 6:6. “Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise!”
As the day progressed, the weather cleared and we were able to spend time with family activities outside. The Adventurers were given “bug catching kits,” and as they went from station to station, they earned plastic bugs to fill their kits.
Families did all the activities together and it was a blessing to see families have time to bond together.
Sunday was our traditional Adventurer Fun Day. Bob Holbrook, pastor, had the feature program, teaching the brand-new Adventurer Award “Ants.”
We give a big thank you to Claudia Andujo, Oklahoma Conference Adventurer director, for this Spirit-filled, family-oriented program.
