Working at VBS again this year has made me think about church camp from when I was a kid. The camp I went to was called "Hooplagrande" It was soooo much fun. We met at the church and took a bus to this outdoor day camp and there were all sorts of fun things to do. We would meet in these little tree covered dens with our group leaders for teaching time and I remember there was a zip line. The bus was a blast because we would sing songs like "spring up old well ....splish-splish-splish-splash...." and "the wheels on the bus" ...and ... "give me wax on my board, keep me surfing for the Lord" But my favorite song was the camp song!! I remember every word:
Oh they say that camps are boring and they're never any fun
But we know the camp were going to is surely number one.
We drive the counselors crazy and we keep them on the run
The fun has just begun!
Singing songs and running races
Itcyr skeeters in all places
We gather in our dens with friends
To learn of Jesus Christ
Hooplagrande is the BEST
IS THE BEST!!
Hooplagrande is the BEST!!!
......it really WAS the BEST!!
