This past week 1200 Freshman Survival Kits were delivered to campuses I work with across the state of Nebraska. The University and State colleges start classes on Monday.
This past Monday I spoke at the Campus Crusade for Christ meeting at Southeast Community College in Milford. I really enjoyed being there, and meeting the new students who just go involved with quarter. On Thursday night the Milford students came to Kamp Ed. At least once each quarter it is my great joy to have them out here at Kamp Ed. The weather was a little cold, so they didn?t get into the water too much except for riding in the raft. Instead, the students hung out on the patio around a fire until close to midnight. The project Jerry and the some of the students worked on was to build a wooden walkway from the new steps to the road. Also, guys lifted the old shore station out of the water and bought it up the bank. They then dismantled the old shore station using manpower, sledgehammers, and power tools--and fed it to the dumpster. We are planning a workday on the morning of September 11th to rebuild the main dock. It has reached a point in rotting, that I?m not sure it will make it through the winter without being rebuilt with new lumber.
This summer Kamp Ed has been blessed with a number of new additions and gifts. Jerry P. our advisor from Milford built steps down the second dock. Other gifts were awesome patio furniture, bunk beds for the bunk house, a pop machine that is a huge hit with kids, an old wooden crab trap that functions as a coffee table, and a Food Savor machine for sealing up fish fillets.
This coming week we have the leadership team from Doane College coming to Kamp Ed, and then I?m speaking at a wedding in Kearney during the weekend.
