Bum bum ba dum dum dum dum… I can hear Killi Olympic Day beginning as the Group Leaders sing the campers the tradional Olympic song at Flag Devo. This is an exciting day because it is the first full day of the session! Campers will attend their first Group Bible, they will go to Crafts for the first time, they’ll begin making friendships and having all kinds of adventures. During Group Activity the campers will compete in all kinds of fun and crazy Olympic events. What you could bring: No costumes are necessary for this day, you just need to be ready to run, play and make lots of new friends.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3017″][vc_column_text]Tuesday: Cowboy Day

Get ready to relive the Alamo, hunt some critters, and wrangle your counselors, it’s Cowboy Day! Yee Haw!!! During Group Activity campers will enjoy exciting Cowboy games, like the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, defending the Alamo, or a good old-fashioned Horseshoe Tournament. Campers will round up their counselors and take them to Killi Creek for some belly flops and creek wrastlin! What you could bring: Anything western goes with this day. A pearl snap shirt, a Cowboy hat, and Cowboy Boots are all great. Just make sure you bring something to wear in the creek![/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1514747409952{padding-top: 40px !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3019″][vc_column_text]Wednesday: Capture The Flag Day

Put on your camo!!!

During Group Activity the campers square off in an epic game of Capture the Flag. When the game finally ends you can just sit at Canteen with the kids and listen to the amazing adventures unfold as the campers relive their favorite moments of the game. What you could bring: Camouflage, camouflage, camouflage! A long pair of pants is also not a bad idea. You may want some protection for your legs as you walk through the woods.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3023″][vc_column_text]Thursday: Indian Day

Arm-wrestling, leg-wrestling, the rock chunk – everybody loves Indian Day! Sadly it is the last full day of the session. Even so, there is still a lot of fun left. During Group Activity the campers compete in events and activities of strength, endurance, and cunning up until the climactic moment…when the group leader arrives. One of the most fun and exciting moments for all the campers is chasing the chief (or whatever character the Group Leader may be playing). The campers get to chase their Group Leader into the woods, discover where he is hiding and dunk him into the cool waters of Killi Creek. What you could bring: This might be a good time for another pair of clothes you don’t mind getting wet.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1514748263941{padding-top: 100px !important;padding-bottom: 120px !important;}” el_id=”twoWeek”][vc_column el_id=”twoWeek” el_class=”twoWeek”][vc_column_text]

Outcamping is an incredible bonding experience that is a staple of our Two Week Sessions. Leaving the already rustic campgrounds behind and hiking into the woods, campers are sure to return with tons of stories and memories after an unforgettable time of growth and fun. Depending on the age group campers stay at Outcamping for one or two nights. Cooking over a campfire, exploring your new surroundings, and continually building relationships with new friends and our Heavenly Father make Outcamping an unforgettable few days.  What you could bring: Bring clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty, some jeans to protect from thorns and bugs, and a sleeping bag or hammock to sleep in![/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1514747925143{padding-top: 40px !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”684″][vc_column_text]Saturday: Killi Kapers

By late Saturday morning all the groups of campers have returned from Outcamping. This means its now time to shower up and rest a little while before getting back into the swing of things. As the day begins to progress everyone begins to prepare for Killi Kapers! Each cabin develops a short skit or act to perform in front of the whole camp that evening. This too can be a bonding experience that really brings a cabin together.  What you could bring: Any type of costume you could think of would probably be something funny for a skit.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”685″][vc_column_text]Middle Sunday

Surfs Up! Everybody loves Hawaiian Day! Sand castles, water games, and of course the giant slip n slide are all a part of the fun. After a great day, the campers go on their second cookout of the session. Campers have plenty of time to just hang out around the campfire while they cook hot dogs. After the cookout, the campers head to Night Canteen, a.k.a. The Hawaiian Day Luau! During the Luau campers enjoy hanging out, eating fruit, and competing in the Limbo. What you could bring: Hawaiian patterned shirts or shorts make for a perfect Hawaiian Day costume. Grass skirts and straw hats are great too. This is a day of lots of water activities so you will need some to have some clothes you don’t mind getting wet.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1514747938743{padding-top: 40px !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3019″][vc_column_text]Wednesday: Capture the Flag Day
