Bowling... with people?

Out of all the crazy games we play at camp, Camper-Counselor Bowling is one of the most popular. It involves campers rolling a rubber bowling ball across the grass to knock down the pins... or rather... the counselors! Everybody can play, and everybody gets a spare or a strike. How will the counselors topple? One at a time? With a twirl? It's different every time. It's not hard to see why the campers get such a big kick out of this one - seriously, what's more fun than seeing your counselors get in pin formation and then tumble?

Meet Katie B.

Here's an illusive photo of Katie B. our Media Design Coordinator (As you can see she is usually on the other side of the camera).  What does a Media Design Coordinator do you ask?  This new seasonal staff role is huge!  Katie takes daily photos around camp, decorates for our theme night, takes and processes camper group photos for printing, compiles the session ending slideshow, writes blog posts, updates facebook, adds to the website, runs our sales table and is designing our 2015 yearbook. 

Wow! is right.  Her artistic design skills, writing forte and photography abilities have been a tremendous addition to our 2015 summer camp season.

Gym Time

Nothing beats a good game session in the gym! That's where we are hanging out today, with parachute games, rubber bowling, bean bag tosses, and dance music. Energy levels are high as always, and campers will have an absolute blast on (shh! it's a surprise!) theme-night Thursday. Spirits are through the roof!

Let the Good Times Roll

This morning was so beautiful, we decided to do our daily stretches and exercises on the black top. Fresh air and a few (walking!) laps got everyone up and ready for a brand new day of camp. Today, we're looking forward to crafts, pedal carts, games, and as always, fantastic food. Seriously, could camp get any more fun?

It sure can!

As we roll into week two of Session 1, we are both excited to welcome new campers, and continue hanging out with those who stay the full session length. With new faces in the mix, we can crank up the energy and dive into a fresh week. It is a blessing to see God bring this many campers out for a retreat packed with so much fun and love. It’s an experience we would like to share with everyone we can.

Sleepy 5k: Before & After

We did it!  Well... 45 individuals, churches, businesses, family and friends across 7 states did it.  165 (and a few extra) mattresses are on their way to Arrowhead.

O, Summer

It's been an exhilarating week so far during 1 to 1 week. Campers have been enjoying paddle boat rides on the lake, miniature golf, life-sized bingo, crafts, outdoor games, and delectable food (including our famous quesadillas)!

Thursday is theme night, an event which includes special games and decorations centered on our summer theme, "The Brackney 500: Winning the Race." Read more about it by clicking here.

Summer 2015 is shaping up to be legendary!

1:1 Week Underway

Yesterday marked the first day of our kick-off summer program: 1 to 1 week! We were delighted to welcome a group of awesome campers into Arrowhead Bible Camp for our first session of summer 2015.

Coloring books, puzzles, bingo, games in the gym, sing-a-longs, dynamite food and Monday night at the Movies got us started off right.
