MiVoden Singles’ Weekend Energizes Campers

Singles from around the Northwest and as far away as North Carolina and Minnesota gathered at Camp MiVoden over Memorial Day Weekend.

They will not soon forget the “Pondering from the Energizer Bunny,” presented by speakers Al and Beth Reimche, from the Oregon Conference, where he serves as vice president for administration.

Their phrase, “God’s love keeps going and going and going,” was heard often as campers climbed the many steps to their rooms, after days filled with spiritual renewal, boating, horse-pulled wagon rides, hiking, beach volleyball, hot tubbing, table games, and swimming.

Evenings, they enjoyed singing and getting acquainted by the campfire, led by Rick Garvin and Rick Franklin.

Singer Janice Renck led worship music and presented a concert on Sabbath afternoon. Jeri and Wayne Hicks made guests feel especially welcome at a Saturday night program of relay games amid festive decorations and a banquet and dating game, Sunday evening.

The eight dating-game winners were treated to a moonlight boat ride on Hayden Lake.

Sunshine during the day brought warmth and beauty, as the campers relaxed in the sun—and, yes, there were a few sunburns. •
