Young Family Camp

On August 12-14 we held a camp at Akagi for young families. This was a bit of an experiment. Once young people get married and have children it seems to get harder and harder for them to find the time or money to get together at camp. About 20 folks gathered at ABC for this camp…. about half of them were “former” campers of some kind, and about half the participants were completely new to ABC. Babysitters were provided to take care of about 10 small children so the parents could spend time together and explore some of the themes of being a Christian couple and a Christian family. Pastor Makoto Hiyoshi (the temporary part-time director of ABC) along with his wife Kinko, were the leaders for this camp. I don’t have many good photos of my own but when I get some more I will try to post them here. We will be doing this camp again next summer and there was a very good response from those who came.

The faces are very small and it’s hard to see folks but here’s a group photo taken during one of the outdoor lunches.

Three of the “younger helpers” in the kitchen for this camp: Towa Tsuruki (who was visiting with his parents and grandparents), Sky Johnson, and Hannah Park.
