We had a great, relaxed time with the kids, big kids . . and puppets!! on Camp Sunday. Camp music and actions, with familiar songs like He’s Got the Whole World, I’ve Got the Joy, Joy, Joy, and Rise and Shine were enjoyed. At ‘sermon’ time, the big kids got together in groups to talk about Nicodemus and new life. A highlight of the service was puppet time. Maureen and Lorne Rueckwald were puppeteers, presenting a nervous camper Sophie and a sleepy, but reassuring, camp counsellor Cameron from lectern and pulpit.
