Day 7 and it felt like heaven!

Our day of tourism was absolutely incredible!  Warning: This post will have LOTS of exclamation points because we had the most amazing time!! We started off the day loading up the bus and leaving our beloved, beautiful campsite. We were sad to leave camp but excited to see Panama! In the photos below we are saying our goodbyes to the cutest kid at camp, Alan. We will miss him so much! Next, ¡Vamos a la playa! The beach was absolutely gorgeous! As you can tell from the pictures, it was the perfect weather. Blue sky, slight overcast, and light breeze. […]

Day 6 and we miss them already!!

¡Hola! So sorry for the late post! Our team has had a blast tonight. Time just got away from us!  The big news of today is: our campers left today 🙁  But we had the greatest three days of camp ever! We are so grateful for everything God did and taught us through these campers and counselors in Panama.  We had a normal first half of our day but after lunch our campers went outside to take an all camp photo. Little did they know – their Panamanian counselors had a surprise waiting for them! They took what they call […]

Day 5ing and THRIVING

Hey there!  Today’s post is from another fantastic Ranch staffer, Justin Doerr! Here’s a picture of him we took this morning with his “Llamaste” shirt on. Classic! Justin is hilarious!  Take it away, Justin! — ¿Que xopà? (What’s up?) Today was AWESOME! I started off the day with a quiet time out on the slab with some others on the trip. It is such an incredible view of the Panamanian countryside and, as an added bonus, I finished my quiet time with eating an orange straight from the tree #yum.  We returned back to the dining hall to have breakfast […]

Day 4 Photos!

Day 4 was SO MUCH FUN! These pictures will give you a little peak into our incredible second full day of camp. Enjoy! P.S. Any captions refer to whatever is pictured directly above it! It’s the birthday girl! Happy 23rd Sara! Club is fun in Panama! Barrett got to be a part of the lunch skit or “sketch” as the Panamanians call it. Here he is being “interviewed.” Totally hilarious! One of Carter’s campers found a Pine Cone and gave it to him as a gift! How sweet!

Day 4 and We Want More!

¡Hola Amigos! Today was so much fun! Some of our staff started out the day by serving in the kitchen and washing dishes! And they (of course) had fun while doing it! After breakfast, we went into a time of worship which was an absolute blast as always! You wouldn’t believe it but at lunch, the Panamanians had our Pine Cove staff face off against one another in a RAP BATTLE. That’s right – a rap battle! It was hilarious! Of course, our staff did great but the competition was hands down won by our very own Ty Herring. He killed […]

Day 3 and we’re having FUN!

¡Hola from Panama!  It’s our first full day of camp here in Panama and boy has it been fun filled!  Another guest post today from another one of our rockstar staffers Payton Weinzapfel! — ¿Que xopa? which means, “What’s up?!” This is one of the many slang Spanish phrases my girls have taught me in an attempt to help me out. It’s also one of the few I’ll actually use. #discernment. As day three is wrapping up, I sit typing with paint and mud-covered hair smelling like a Panamanian dish sponge and I couldn’t love it any more. Today, we […]
