Jump Rope to Israel (camp complete!)

100_3541x Week of Jump Rope Camp: successful!!

Actually, I should say week of jump rope “camps” because we taught two camps this week back to back. We were so blessed to be able to use the Fellowship Hall at the Salvation Army church for our camp. The best part about it was that it had A/C.

The first camp was from 8-10 every morning where we had 18 children from our homeschool group, ages 5-16, jumping until they were sweaty and muscle sore.

We did single rope… 100_3539x 100_3532x 100_3536x Played long rope games…

On the last day of camp we put on a presentation for all the parents. Afterwards I gave every jumper a certificate of completion as well as their jump rope trick check off list they had been working on all week.

So, in return for letting us use their facility, we put on a jump rope camp for their kids. It was held every morning from 10 to 10:45 in the same room. We had about 25-30 kids in this group.

I want to say thank you to everyone who supported our trip to Israel. We are looking forward to being used by God in many ways as well as being strengthened in our faith and relationship with Him through this trip.
