Have you ever heard of CEF? Child Evangelism Fellowship? It’s a wonderful international ministry that reaches pre-teen children with the Gospel of Christ on their level in their environment. They have the Good News Clubs (after-school programs) and Backyard Clubs (aka 5 Day Clubs) which take place over the summer in (you guessed it) backyards. CEF also has seven Camp Good News all across the country. One of them is here in Hawthorne, FL, and we are blessed to be able serve here this month. Want to see what’s it all about?
This is the main building/dining hall/activity room –
I believe the murals on the wall were done by SOWER ladies in years past. They represent some of the activities that are available at the camp.
This is our parking area –
Very cozy, don’t you think?
and campfire pits
and the Good News Gulch. –
There’s a nice “waterfront”, with it’s own water slide!
and a small selection of boats for the campers to use.
There’s lots more to the camp, but this I hope gives you a feel for Camp Good News, here in Florida. The camp is quiet now, just waiting for the first batch of pre-teens to come for spring break day camp. Our jobs this month will mostly focus on helping to wake up the camp from its winter sleep and get it ready for a new batch of youngun’s to come and learn about Jesus.
Should be a great month!
