SCM Camp 2011
The SCM Camp 2011 took place from the 30th of August to the 2nd of September. The theme this year was ICC which stood for the acronym Is Christ in Control?? The aim of this camp was that girls would get to know their Lord Jesus Christ in a more intimate way, commit their lives to Him and draw closer to Him. A total of 98 girls attended the camp from Grade 9 and above inclusive of the committee. The girls were split into 6 teams and had around 16 members each.
The major events of camp were worship, quiet time, sessions, enactment, games, entertainment and the camp fire. Throughout the camp various sessions were held on a variety of topics such as ‘It’s not about me’ ‘Example of Jesus’ ‘BGR’ ‘PTR’ ‘Gift of grace’ and ‘The joy of suffering’ which were done by Refuge, Asiri Fernando, Roshan Mendis and Prashan De Vissor.
Before sessions a time of worship was conducted during which the girls worshipped God with all their hearts in Spirit and in Truth. Quiet time was a time set for each child to be alone with God reading His Word, meditating and praying. It was a time which strengthened their personal relationship with God and encouraged them to be more Christ-like. Enactment too was an important aspect of camp which was basically a discussion between the girls regarding the session during which all that they learnt was discussed and any doubts were cleared.
A series of riotous games such as ‘cat and two fish’, ‘treasure hunt’, ‘final destination’ were organized which were enjoyed by all and required the participation of every child. Entertainment was also an enjoyable part of camp. The girls were asked to come up with a drama, dance within an allocated time and their innovative and aesthetic skills were brought into the lime light during this time. The camp fire was a wonderful experience too. Every one enjoyed roasting marshmallows around the camp fire, singing, dancing and enjoying the fellowship of those around.
The final session was a unique experience to all the girls. Many girls committed their lives to Christ and came forward to experience the love of Christ. They were individually prayed for. During closing worship a number of girls gave very inspirational testimonies of how God had worked in their lives all through out camp , the ways in which God had spoken to them individually and the decisions they planned to take once they went back home. This encouraged and strengthened all the girls who were at camp too.
We are very grateful to our teacher in charge Mrs. S. Rajkumar and the way in which she contributed greatly towards making this camp possible. Also special thanks to Mrs Rebeira and Miss Cushani Fernando for accompanying us and for the valuable advice they gave many a time.
Above all it’s through God’s overwhelming love and grace that this camp was held. To Him be all glory, honour and praise.
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord , not for men”
