Dad Kid camp 2011

Dad Kid camp 2011

22 September 2011 | Children | Johan Verboom
On the second weekend in September, 50 children with their dads took off to Woudenberg, the new site of the annual Dad-kid-camp.  As they arrived they pitched their tents and then enjoyed a great meal prepared by Dorien van Renselaar and her crew. It was just a small taste of what was to come! 

At night we got to know each other a little bit as every family had prepared a collage at home that told part of the story of their family. 
The theme of the weekend was “heaven is home” , about  the verses in  Matthew 9:19 -21
Saturday morning started with some gym exercises to wake up, followed by a good breakfast and a morning of teaching and prayer activities. The Dad’s got to spend some meaningful time with their kids to talk about things that matter in life, or better yet, that matter in eternity.
The afternoon was spent doing games on the beach of the Henschotermeer.  The weather was very cooperative and as we returned we were greeted by the smell of BBQ. In the dark of the evening we played an exciting game made even more exciting by the constant flashes of lightning in the distance.  When it was time to go to bed, rain was pouring down and some dad’s had to relocate their bed for the night as their tents were not suited for the Dutch summer weather.
Sunday the Dad’s got to spend some time together talking about the important role a Dad has in a child’s life.  We got to encourage each other and pray for each other to ask God’s help in raising our beautiful children.
We are all very thankful to Hanneke and her team for another excellent weekend.  The Dad Kid Camp has become a great way to start the season! We can’t wait to go again next year!
