MK camp is where the MKs from southern Africa come together in South Africa and have camp!!! It is such a good time to meet new friends. I will tell you all about it!!! Part of the reason why we wanted to go to South Africa is for me to go to camp. It was December 28th - January1st.
You meet at the guest house and from there on you go to a center for camps called Kadseh Barnea. I was very nervous because I didn't know many people. I only knew a couple of people. So, I got on the bus and sat with my 2 friends Hannah and Emma. I had already known them from 40/40. We talked and played some games and then we were there!

Then I meet my new friend Evie. So after we waited for our luggage to be unloaded, we got our luggage and went to our rooms. I was rooming with 4 other sweet girls!
They are Phoebe, Joy, Jasmine, and Mya. And our counselor Sarah.

(Phoebe is still asleep.)
So after we got settled we went and had lunch.
Then after lunch we went and got our picture made. It was SO hot!
|Can you find me?!?|
Just for fun I wanted to put this picture in because it shows how we all felt when the pictures were not being taken!!! It was so hot! And the sun was in our eyes!
Only because I know lots of these people I think it is funny!!!
So if you don't laugh it is fine!!!
(Sorry that it is kind-of blurry!)
After taking pictures we went inside and the team from the states that came to lead the camp introduced themselves.Then we played some "get to know you" type games. It was so fun but since there were no ACs it was really hot in the room. After that we had free time. Then after free time we ate dinner. After dinner we had worship and small groups. My small group was 13 and 14 year olds. Then we went and got some clothes on that could get dirty in Extreme Capture the Flag!!! (In the pitch black darkness!!!) So then we played Extreme Capture the Flag! It was so fun!!!! After that we were all so tired and we knew that we had to get up really in the morning so we went to bed at about 12:00. In the morning I got up at about 5:00. All of the light was coming in and on my side of the room!!! :) And people were being loud opening and closing their suitcases. So I got up and did some quite time then they had some breakfast for the early risers. So after we had breakfast some of us played 4 square. After that most everyone was up so we had worship and small groups. After about 1 1/2 hours of that we went outside and played some games. It was so hot so I drank about 3 cups of water and me and my friends poured water on each other! You know its camp!!! So then we had lunch and after lunch we played Uno. But camp style. It is very hard to explain so will just leave it as it was hot and fun!!! So then we had free time and then dinner, then worship and small groups and then we all played Minute-To-Win-It!! It was so fun!!! The next day (Sunday) was about the same, except we watched The Advengers for the night thing. (You know we played capture the flag and minute-to-win-it....like that.) So then on Monday we did mostly the same thing. I got pushed in the pool at free time and then that night (it was New Years) we had a bonfire and a party!!! At the bonfire some of us told our testimonies and we told how God has worked in our life in the past year. Then at the party they have music going and everyone dances to it and you eat watermelon and strawberries!!! It was so awesome!!! After that we stayed up and talked. Then at 3:00am we finally started getting ready for bed.
|At party!!! It was western themed!|
Mya, Hannah, Bethany, Me, and Evie
So then on Tuesday we all had to say good bye! That was so hard because I had made so many great friends! After we got off of the bus we all went to this field and all got in a circle and it is very hard to explain but you go in a circle and everyone hugs everyone. No matter if you like them or not!!
Then I had to say good bye for real!!!Wahhhhhh!!!!! Boooo Hoo!!!!
But I can't wait for next year and I can't wait to see everyone else!
Mya, Hannah, Evie, and Me!!
I hope that all made sense and you got to see a little bit of of all the fun that I had!
