The children  enjoy a bible devotion related to animals!  These fun stories reflect on God creating each animal in a unique way and  God creating each child in a unique way.  The stories also lend themselves well to social themes including: sharing, family, helping others, and being a nice friend.  The stories are taken from the book My Big Book of 5-minute Devotions by Pamela and Douglas Kennedy.  Copies of these devotions will be sent home on the last day of camp.
