(A particular child that attended camp) probably has emotional defiant behavior issues.  Because of that he gets picked on a lot and is bullied a lot.  So, that week he was getting bullied a lot and was causing behavioral issues for their group.  Daily, I would have to talk to him and talk to the counselors to try to figure out what to do.  But one afternoon near the end of the day, something had happened. I and a counselor sat down and talked with the child about this tree in our playground.  We talked to him and we talked about God.  I can’t even remember what was said, but since then he has come back every Sunday.  And nights (Saturdays) when his mom works, he asks to come spend the night with us.  His mom told us that “he had never experienced God like that.”  He still always wants to go back to that one tree.

(A child that attended camp) goes to a charismatic church, but children aren’t encouraged to dance. He loves to dance.  So (at camp) he’s dancing and doing flips, and he’d never be able to do flips at his church.  Not only was dancing encouraged, but all of the campers were cheering him on as he’s doing all of these things.  He came home and couldn’t stop talking about camp and everything he learned: “God is with me!  And most important, we’re supposed to respect others!”  It was interesting to see it all through his eyes.
