Introducing the 2021 Theme
At WinShape Camps, we are committed to serving our campers and their families through every aspect of camp; and this includes our camp theme. By the time campers show up for camp one summer, we are already well on our way to planning the ultimate camp experience for the next summer!
As this preparation unfolds, we have a team that meets regularly and pays special attention to our camp theme and everything related to it. This team is made up of staff members from all of our camp programs. As we plan for each summer’s theme, we first seek the Lord for our ultimate leadership. We ask His guidance as we seek to select a theme that will be relevant, powerful, and engaging. We then do everything we can to follow His leading and to craft a theme that will meet our campers and their families where they are. We identify and discuss issues, circumstances, and challenges that our campers and their families are facing. As we have all been praying for our campers and for God’s guidance, we share the burdens on our hearts. We also share research we have done and specific real-life examples we have seen regarding these burdens.
Summer 2021 feels especially unique. There are some big questions we believe campers are facing in their lives, especially in these unprecedented times, when the current state of their lives and purpose may feel like a big question mark.
Who am I? Why am I here? What am I supposed to do?
Where do I fit in with everyone else? These are huge questions that affect our thoughts, our feelings, and our actions—big and small. In Ephesians 2:10, God’s Word gives us some great insight into the answer to those questions : “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” We are each a unique masterpiece of God, designed with intricate divine care.
Shakespeare wrote that “all the world’s a stage” and that each of us has a part to play. God has written the most incredible adventure story of love and purpose. . . and He made each of us to play a very unique role, designed by Him. God created us all, values us all, and loves us all with an amazing love. But He created each of us with our own talents and skills and personalities. We are all different, yet equally important, with our specific parts to play. So, places please, for WinShape Camps 2021, where we will explore this amazing story God has written and discover what it means that you were Made For This!
