About 40 staff and campers (pictured below) gathered in mid-July at the Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center near Lanesboro, MN, for the 11th year of Northern Light Camp, which is one of GCI Generations Ministries’ youth camps.
Set in scenic southeastern Minnesota along the Root River, the Eagle Bluff staff provided activities such as canoeing, high ropes, pioneer life, pond life, archery, skeet shooting and indoor rock climbing. Additional activities provided by GCI volunteer staff included T-shirt tie dyeing, making pottery, wood turning ink pens and rolling pins, making lariat rope, cup stacking, paracord bracelet making, card playing, hands-on engineering, physics of non-Newtonian liquids (think slime and quick sand!), Frisbee golf, making noodles and home-made ice cream. Worship and messages supporting the theme, “The Journey (a lifelong adventure with Jesus)” were given daily by Charles and Keysha Taylor, Becky Deuel and Doug Johannsen. Camp Director was Troy Meisner.
