Sports Camp (Focus, Aug 2016)
This year marked our tenth annual sports camp for kids! Wow! We have expanded from offering just basketball to now offering three different options for Sports Camp. With choices of basketball, volleyball or tennis, kids spend four intense days learning skills and techniques in their sport of choice.
This summer’s basketball camp, which was under the leadership of our very own Zach Bartel, and had eighty-one kids registered and was staffed with over forty UBC students. Volleyball camp was led by Jennifer Pyle and had forty-nine kids registered and was staffed with approximately fifteen UBC students. This was our third year to partner with Bay Area Racquet Club to offer tennis, and we maxed out at thirty-six kids and were staffed with six UBC students.
Each day after lunch, the kids gathered in the Chapel for a devotional time. This year we talked about “Epic Moments” in our life. Epic moments of discovery show us that we are valued. Epic moments of adversity remind us that God is here. Epic moments of defeat can be overcome and epic moments of victory prove we are winners! Every day, 166 children heard that Jesus loves them and desires for each of us to have an epic moment of salvation.
