On the week of July 6, 2020, my brother and I, have done a summer camp called CYOB (Camp in Your Own Box) in a nearby Presbyterian Church.
The topic of the camp this year is Compassion. Compassion as defined by Merriam Webster is sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it.
Compassion for me, is when you see someone hurt, you feel their hurt, and you try to comfort their hurt!
The camp was on weekdays for one week, and during those days we talked about being kind to ourself and others.
Then we would do some activities like colouring prayer sheets and making glass marble magnets.
Our day starts with a song and a prayer, and a Bible passage/reading and discussing about the day’s reading. I love how our leaders always asked us about our thoughts and ideas for what the day’s Bible passage means to us.
Below are some of the things that we did during our CYOBox camp:
- A centrepiece (A decoration in the middle of an object, such as flowers in the middle of a table.
- Magic nature wands made out of some string and a stick.
- A “STAY SAFE” card to mail.
The camp is amazing! Here are some of our photos:
