Super Heroes Discovered at Camp Paxson

September 01, 2009 | Archie Harris

Campers arrived at Camp Paxson on Seeley Lake, in Mont., in record numbers again this June ready for a week of fun-filled activity. Besides the usual water sports, archery and crafts, there were several new choices for campers which included: Lego robotics, scrapbooking and pinewood derby cars.

Super Heroes was the camp's theme for the week. Brad Brown, pastor, shared stories about God's super-heroes each evening which challenged campers to be super-heroes for God. A skit performed by the counselors featured a super-hero named Pajama Jones (or PJ for short) which created an instant camp mascot out of Alden Weaver, counselor.

Perfect weather all week made it easy to work on craft projects outside. Bird houses were built, puppets made and derby cars finished. The activity-packed week ended with relay races where campers could use basketball, swimming, kayaking and archery skills they practiced throughout the week. The pinewood derby cars so recently finished were put to the test on the track. All the campers were able to watch the races and cheer for their cabin mates.

A baptism on Sabbath afternoon in the camp swimming area made a perfect ending to a great week.
