Teen Camp 2008

Friday night we went to the annual Teen Camp at Estancia Maranata. It was us three Duarte kids, the four oldest Courter kids, and three young people from church - Guga, Gilmara and Rodrigo.
We came back Saturday afternoon because we had a service at sister Ilza's house. It was a good service; a lot of people she had invited came.
We headed off to camp again after the service Sunday night and spent the day Monday.

Here are some pictures...




Playing ping pong



We were divided into 3 diferent teams; Blue, Green, and Red.
They had Bible memory verse competitions here are the teams saying or singing all the veres they know.



Miss Jessica (btw, she was the girl that said most verses this year - Congratulations, Jess!)



What do you think that look is for? :)




This is Jucimar. He broke the record this year by saying 314 verses.



He spent hours saying them



In this relay we had to fill these water bottles that were laying on a team member's head!

The next game we had was that every team member had to tie a ballon to their leg and everyone had to try to pop the other team's while protecting theirs. It was Crazy!
