UNAFRAID – UNASHAMED
Back to base Camp Report by Lilli,Ellie,Rachael & Ange
On Tuesday at 12.00, we met at the church and left for Warrambui. On the way we stopped at MacDonalds in Cowra. Some uf us got Happy Meals and Josh stuck his toy on Pastor’s car. We arrived ot Warrambui and got unpacked. We also had small group devotions and worship.
On Wednesday, first up we had energizers. These are fitness games. Then we had worship followed by a small group study. That night we were having a skit night which we all had to prepare for. We also had to do something nice for Warrambui like rake bushwalking paths and pick up rubbish etc after which we had another small group study. We also had free time for a while , then had connect time.
Connect time is when you have time alone with God. Praying and answering questions from our booklets and reading the Bible. We had our last small group devotion then and went to bed.
On Thursday as usual we had energizers. Then we had morning worship and connect time. After another small group study we had more free time.After lunch we had THE AMAZING RACE. The amazing race is a group of challengers and you do things like Archery, Finding ribbons with a bible verse on them etc. After dinner we had Challenge evening. Challenge evening is Challenging your sririt.
On Friday we started with questions with Pastor followed by our last small group devotion where we all recieved our “Back to Base Shirts”. After morning tea we had connect time followed by group activity. We played games like volleyball. After lunch we had a group photo then our final worship. We said goodbye to everyone and left for the long trip home. Of course we stopped at MacDonalds in Cowra to get a snack. We all enjoyed the Back 2 Base camp VERY MUCH.
There were 16 people from Dubbo and 130 people at Warrambui camp all up.

Kid’s address on picnic day
Kids Club had a ‘Show and Tell’
This year’s theme is Faith changing Lives. We have looked at some of the people in the Old Testaments and saw how having faith changes lives. We have also looked at some people since Bible time and saw how faith changes their lives too.
At Kids Club this year we have made or been given a bookmark with the bible verse or text on it of the day.
We make a craft activity at each kids club. We have made many things, a few have been a box, key ring, bath salts and bugs.
Last years offering was to be given to a children’s organisation in need. After careful consideration we approchaced the children’s ward at the hospital. They told us they were desperate for pyjamas. A group of loverly volunteers made pajamas in all kids sizes. These were greatly appreciated. We are now looking into making slings.
