Lake of the Trees open house attracts 80 visitors

Lake Of The Trees (LOTT) Bible Camp hosted an Open House on June 27.

Lake Of The Trees (LOTT) Bible Camp hosted an Open House on June 27.

More than 80 people experienced a variety of activities, including archery, pelletry, mini golf, rock climbing and swimming in the beautiful lake.

Fantastic kitchen staff prepared delicious hamburgers, hotdogs, coleslaw, potato salad, tater tots, chocolate cake and cookies.

In archery, children and parents learned how to safely and effectively use a recurve bow in order to hit down-range targets.

Meanwhile at pelletry, guests were instructed how to load, aim, and fire a pellet rifle with the ACTS and PROVE safety guidelines.

Mini-golf and rock climbing were a slightly farther trek, but well worth the journey. Eleven mini-golf holes provided a variety of quirky obstacles, including a barn, a wishing well, and water trough.

Rock climbing is a 34-foot high challenging endeavour. A climber who makes it to the top may ring the winner’s bell announcing his or her tremendous achievement.

Waterfront time included beach volley ball, sand castle building, swimming, and slipping down the fast water slide. The more adventurous could choose a leap off of the high dive or jump onto the “blob” (waterfront trampoline).

The blobbers could then choose to be swiftly propelled through the air into the lake thanks to the jumper’s weight.

This Fourth Annual Open House marked the start of the 2015 season.

Throughout the next eight weeks, LOTT Bible Camp hosts 10 fun, Bible-centred camping sessions for children ages 6 -17, and families. This includes work crew — three weeks of incredible community, work experience, faith development, good fun, and leadership training. LOTT Bible Camp also recruits, screens and trains enthusiastic volunteers who donate parts or all of their summer to look after campers.

LOTT Bible Camp, a ministry of One Hope Canada, offers a great summer experience showing God’s love through fun, Bible-centred camping.

Monica Rawlek Elizondo and Mathew Nielsen are LOTT Bible Camp cabin leaders.
