I like playing the game cube. I like the staff. I like helping out with passing out the snacks. I like praying with my group and counselors. I like getting my group to use words to build up and not tear down. I like helping the little people get in line and show them an example. I Love Camp Heaven (a poem) I like Camp Heaven because we got to do a lot of things like play games, have free time, and go on trips like to the zoo, or a museum. We had lots of good things to eat as well like pizza and sandwiches. These are my favorite parts of Camp Heaven 2008. I love Camp Heaven. I love the tutors. They take care of us. I love to read. And spend time with my tutor. I love when we go to Six Flags and go swimming. I love to get on the rides. I love to play with my friends. Queshawn Wheeler, age 10 The reason I'm writing this is to promote Little Lights to tell people about Camp Heaven! Camp Heaven is a fun program to be in. The things I did was eat lunch, did open assembly, got in my groups like I was supposed to and I followed the rules and respected adults. What I did was prayed, went to Six Flags, and liked being with my counselor. It was fun being at camp. I love Jesus. The End.
