Friday 6/20: Our last day & Skit Night

Fanari 2014 is just about over, and we’re so sad that this was our last full day of camp. It’s been another wonderful day of friendships and memory making, and we’re so thankful to have had this week to meet new people.

Our Pick Up Your Cross and Follow Me campers have had a wonderful time hanging out with the 10th and 11th grades. We’re so glad they joined us for another year of Fanari!

It’s our last night at Fanari Camp and there’s no better way to end our time together than with the skits that our campers worked on all week. Our Theater Staff did a great job coordinating the evening and all of the campers had fun with their songs and skits! The 11th graders closed their Fanari experience with the song “Time of Your Life” and lots of hugs.

Huge congratulations to the campers and counselors of the 11th grade for being the 2014 Fanari Camp Spirit Winners; they truly embraced the Fanari Spirit all week long! 

One last evening chapel, a slideshow of the week, and a few songs closed out our day. Nani nani campers, time to head home tomorrow.

Thursday 6/19: Dance & Bonfire

Well, it’s the end of a special day and the campers are in for the night. We had a fantastic time at the dance and listening to Mr. D tell stories around the campfire. The campers dressed in some awesome sports-themed outfits for the dance- we had refs, race car drivers, tennis pros, soccer players, a runner, an ice skater, a swimmer and of course lots of Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, Sox and Cubs gear! The campers also had the opportunity to hear Mr. D share stories around the bonfire (until the rain forced us inside) and make s’mores. As always, Mr. D kept the campers engaged and everyone had a great time.

Today our Pick Up Your Cross and Follow Me campers arrived and will spend the entire day with us tomorrow. We can’t wait to share another year of Fanari agape with them!

Tonight the 6th grade won the spirit stick for dancing up a storm at the dance, and we closed evening chapel with “Gloria,” a camper favorite, “Pharaoh Pharaoh,” “Seek Ye First,” and “In My Life”!

It’s been a truly beautiful day and we’ve been blessed with such wonderful experiences at Fanari. We only have one more full day of camp, and as always, this week has flown by!

Thursday 6/20: Dance & Bonfire

Well, it’s the end of a special day and the campers are in for the night. We had a fantastic time at the dance and listening to Mr. D tell stories at the bonfire. The campers dressed in some great western-themed outfits for the dance- cowboys, cowgirls, and even a horse! The campers also had the chance to hear Mr. D share stories around the bonfire and make s’mores. As always, Mr. D kept the campers engaged and everyone had a great time.

Today our Pick Up Your Cross and Follow Me campers arrived and will spend the entire day with us tomorrow. We can’t wait to share another year of Fanari agape with them!

Tonight the 7th and 11th grades won the spirit sticks and we closed evening chapel with “Gloria,” “Shine On” and an all-time Fanari classic, “Let There Be Peace On Earth”!

It’s been a truly beautiful day and we’ve been blessed with such wonderful experiences at Fanari. We only have one more full day of camp, and as always, this week has flown by!
