2022 Girl Survival Camp

This camp was tough but over all lessons were learned and hard obstacles were overcome!

This Girls' Survival Camp was taken up a new level. It was an awesome camp and everyone learned not just about survival and medical skills, but also how to persevere when things get tough and to have a good attitude regardless of how you feel. We also learned that our Identity is in Christ only, and what people think of us does not define who we are!

The objective of the survival camp was for young ladies to learn important survival skills for the mission field and to be prepared for any event that life could bring their way. Through each activity they gained confidence as well as a deeper understanding of who God is TO THEM and IN THEM! They gained mental toughness as various unexpected challenges were thrown at them. Through each exercise they learned how to work as a team and that they are better together then alone. They walked away rooted deeper in their faith and stronger in their identity.

The topics covered were:  

  • Basic Survival (foraging for food, finding and purifying water, fire with one match and natural materials, make toilet, shelter building with a single tarp and the natural elements)
  • Basic Medical (bleeds, sprains, strains, breaks, hypothermia, dehydration, cuts, checking vitals, and assessing critical situations)
  • Self-defense (situational awareness, keeping distance between you and a predator with verbal communication, basic chokes and tackles, best places to strike predator)
  • How to walk quietly, how to use a compass, how to drag and injured person or carry with a stretcher, and how to kayak

This camp was tough, with simple limited food, unknown time and PT. Each morning every girl spent 30 minutes in God's word and in prayer. Over all lessons were learned and hard obstacles were overcome!

Overcoming Conquerors not on our own. Overcoming Conquerors in Christ alone!

Revelations 12:11 "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death."

Romans 8:37-39 "Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
