Hidden Mystery and Refugee Adventure

Location:  Small dining hall

Our “Set Free” theme jolts us to think about those who need freedom.  Massive swaths of our population need liberty from their prison of unbelief and ignorance of Christ’s love for them.  This is missions camp’s first priority of concern.   Moreover, huge numbers around the world are fleeing their native homes in search of freedom from religious, political, and physical persecutions or conditions.    The United Nations lists Laos, Thailand, Myanmar (formerly Burma), Syria, Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Somalia among the most affected countries.   Dallas Independent School Districts also lists Sudan as a suffering country with refugees.  2019 Girls’ Summer Missions Camp is highlighting this group.

To spotlight the above countries, our camp committee is asking our churches to pick a country from the above list, feature its culture in any way(s) chosen, and spotlight the citizens and their reasons for escaping their birth country.  Suggested items for your table may include the following, and whatever else your creative mind desires:  Food, dress of the country, map, game, pictures, etc., and information about their refugees.  

A Passport Book, with a page for each country, will be given to each camper.  She will listen to what the table spokesperson reports, play a game, eat a food, etc. (Activities are at the discretion of the church.)  Before leaving the country/table, her passport must be stamped!!! 

Where does the Hidden Mystery come in?  On each table, there will be an alphabet letter or number—not both, it will be one or the other.  After visiting all tables, a camper should have spotted all the letters and numbers, written them down, and put the letters and/numbers together to reveal the mystery phrase, word, whatever!!! (We are not telling!!!!)  *Warning:  There may be more tables than letters/numbers.  Just sayin’.

Our “Conniving Camp Director” will hold our night’s refreshments hostage until each church group tells her what it thinks the Hidden Mystery is.   Only after their revelation will the director unleash our yummy treat for the night

Countries from which to choose:   (Note that some have already been chosen.)

Sudan - Singing Hills

Laos - Plymouth Park

Guatemala - Freeman Heights

Rwanda - Royal Haven

Thailand

Myanmar (formerly called Burma),

Syria

Please choose a country and let Carol Dorman (carol@royalhaven.net) or the WMU office (wmu@dba.net) know the country you choose!!!  We need AT LEAST seven countries selected.  We shall send you suggestions on some things to do . . . be creative and have some fun!!! :)

       * Camp opens at 7:00 a.m., Monday, July 29, for bringing  your campers.  We shall leave camp at 2:00 p.m., Thursday, August 1.   If you need prompting on any information regarding camp from prior communiqués, please contact the WMU office at wmu@dba.net
