Stronghold

Virtual Archery Camp

Covid 19 stinks.

We get it.

We'd rather be discipling youth in person than virtually. But we are committed to that mission. 

We don't want your kids to miss out on fellowship, discipleship, learning, and adventure.

Enter Virtual Camp.

Stronghold Virtual Archery Camp 2020

In lieu of skits, campers and staff enjoyed putting together this re-enactment of the song, "I'll Make a Man Out of You" from the Disney movie Mulan. The song is a camp favorite. Everyone did an amazing job!

What Was Virtual Camp Like?

We started the morning with Archery lessons.

Basic archery practice with safety goggles!

Targets were mailed along with a bow, two arrows, and safety goggles to each camper.

Sometimes we had to shoot indoors.

We had fun!

Sometimes you get to be the target.

We practiced moving while shooting.

And shooting from behind cover!

We practiced nocking arrows without looking... with towels to help!

Pastor Lacy helped us know God more through Bible Study on how mountains are used in God's redemptive story.

Campers engaged in heroic acts and used teamwork (and their archery skills!) to free fairies from the clutches of the evil Dr. Crow and his horde of gnomes in bowler hats during afternoon Imagination Adventures.

The parents of campers played an important role in camp this year: They were the gnome hoard!

 

Many campers were "poisoned" by gnome bowler hats, more found the "antidote", and all found tiny hand-crafted gnomes hiding in their homes as part of the fun. 

Campers shared lunch over video chat, and participated in optional evening activities like a costumed campfire with s' mores!
