Fall Retreat at the Cove Camp

Fall Retreat at the Cove Camp


I spent a weekend with the kids at the Cove Camp in Asheville, NC back in October. This was a great three day trip to the mountain retreat run by the Billy Graham Evangelical Association. We had all kinds of activities, devotionals, music, and fellowship.

We had a great weekend, not too cold. Unfortunately, not many of my pictures turned out. Here's a selection of the ones that did, mostly of me on the obstacle course:

[The Cove]
Here's two of our gals on the archery range. Look's like they had fun!
Here's where we had our morning meetings -- and also where we had a cool s'mores cookout our last night. There's the B-Man, always in the middle of things!
There's Counselor Steve with his team after a victorious Nerf polo match. My team saved its energy for Adventure Ball (see below).
Me and three of my teammates next to our goal in Adventure Ball. I could explain the rules of the field game -- a mix of freeze tag, capture the flag, and others -- but I can't remember them all. My team won, though. Go team!!
Me doing my Tarzan impersonation on the obstacle course. Too bad the picture of me going down backwards, one-handed didn't turn out.
Me and the guys on the spider web.
The B-Man tackles The Wall! Unfortunately I fell a yard from the end. Nobody's perfect!
Here I am showing off my incredible balance as a teammate reaches out to help me across. The next challenge was the Walk of Faith, where your teammates verbally guide you across as you walk the beam with your eyes closed.
This was a rope tunnel similar to the spider web. I had fun as always -- I'm actually tackling this one headfirst on my back!
Me headed over the top with another look of intense determination on my face. "Work hard, play hard" I always say!
