This year, Gateway employed the services of Scripture Union Sports Camps to come and coach our annual event. Between our volunteers, our interns, pastoral staff, and the professionals from
SU - this was our best Sports Camp to date!
We had 29 campers, 4 SU coaches, 2 pastor staff, 3 interns, and 4 volunteers. The camp ran from July 27-31.
On Wednesday, one of our campers broke into tears when his mom came to pick him up. We comforted him by telling him that the great thing about leaving sports camp at the end of the day is that he can then come back the next day!
On Friday morning, one mother, dropping her son said "You know, your camp is really good. My son goes to a number of camps, and none of them are done this well.".
If you take a look at the faces - you'll only recognize a couple of the campers as Gateway kids... The rest are from the community, schools or churches that we connected with prior to the camp.
Praise God for a fantastic week, for all of the staff at Scripture Union who made this week count for all the kids!
