Day 1


Senior High 1 - Day 1-9We are beginning the first senior high camp knowing and praying that God is going to do great things this week. After the campers arrived, they divided into their republics to create their group name and chants for the week. At first, the high schoolers seemed timid but within no time they were screaming the chants and dancing around with no cares in the world. I recall my high school years and that need for acceptance I carried with me. I know many of these students carry similar burdens with them; but Barefoot is a place where everyone can come and be accepted for who they are. It is okay to jump around yelling about llamas and avocados. This feeling of acceptance at Barefoot is just one of the characteristics that makes this place special. After previewing speciality classes and (hopefully) passing the swim test, the campers gathered for evening worship. Thomas Rose and his wife led worship for us tonight. Witnessing a couple give glory to God through worship is a moving experience. Thomas brought Kareem, a guy’s republic leader, on stage to share about his walk with Christ. His honest and transformative testimony not only set the tone for the theme this week, Inside Out; but it showed the campers that God is a merciful and gracious God. Our speaker for the week, Will Peoples, is the pastor for Born Again Church in Nashville, TN. Building on Kareem’s testimony, He spoke of God’s mercy. Opening with the verses Romans 12:1-2, he told the campers that regardless of how society views us, we are all equal in God’s eyes. Even though we are sinners,Senior High 1 - Day 1-93 God lavishes His mercy upon us. And the great news is that all of us are able to receive this mercy. We ended worship by writing things we want to let go of on paper lanterns. The campers lit the paper lanterns, and watched as each group symbolically released all of their struggles to God. Finally, we ended our first night the usual way: Messy Games. After a series of gross competitions, campers left for their cabin covered with flour, shaving cream, and other miscellaneous substances. We are looking forward to the week ahead and ask that you please pray for these students as we begin this journey together. Pray that those who do not know the Lord will come to know God through Barefoot. Pray that those who do know Christ will walk deeper with Him. I am looking forward to see how God reveals Himself to us this week.

 

Always,

Mary Kate

Day 2


Senior High Day 2-6It’s our second day at camp, but I feel as if these campers have been here for much longer. Many of these campers are veterans. They know the chants, the staff, and the other campers. Hearing stories from campers who have been at overnight camp since it began in 2009 is moving.  They have seen how Barefoot has grown and how God has used Barefoot in people’s lives. I am excited to see how God uses this week to continue to transform these campers. Each day our campers have two different specialties. Barefoot offers everything from photography, drama, engineering, frisbee, horseback riding, spoken word, and soccer. Although it’s only our first full day to meet, I saw tremendous talent in all of the classes I visited. Art painted mason jars. Dance had almost finished choreographing an entire song. One of the basketball teams won with a last second jumper. For team building, we have introduced a new activity called nature drop. Four of the republics must gather items from nature to protect their egg. We then drop these cages off our blob tower in hopes that the egg survives the fall. Little Saints, a guy’s cabin, protected all three eggs today, defeating the other 3 republics. After an exciting afternoon of paintball, canoeing, and blobbing, we gathered together to participate in another competition. Small frisbees with letters on them floated in two inflatable pools. Campers had to jump in the pool with both feet and grab a frisbee. The girls had to spell “Ladies in the house” and the guys had to spell “Fellas in the house.” Again, Little Saints won this competition. It looks as if the guys might have a lead on purple cup this week. During worship, one of theSenior High Day 2-185 republic leaders shared her testimony. Although she has faced many trials, Egypt has chased after God wholeheartedly. As I have gotten to know Egypt, I have witnessed her intimate relationship with Jesus. Her testimony inspired many in the room, moving many of the campers to open up to their counselors. Finally, we ended the night with many people’s favorite event this week: block party. With snow cones in hand, campers whipped, dougied, and cha chaed. This was my favorite block party so far. One of the older guy’s cabins danced in the middle of the dance floor the entire night. They jumped around and taught the rest of us new dance moves. By the end of the night, we were dancing back to our cabins wishing we were still in the U.N. doing the wobble.

 

In Christ,

Mary Kate

Camper + Staff Interviews

Senior High Day 2-62Julie | Age 15 | Haiti | 1st year

Why did you come to Barefoot?

“My brother came here last year. When he got home, he wouldn’t stop talking about it. It made me really jealous. I wanted to experience what he had. I also wanted to come closer to God.”

What have you thought about Barefoot so far?

“Well yesterday I was really bored and I wasn’t really participating in anything. But I don’t think that was the camp, I think that was me being stubborn. Today, I woke up and pretty much did everything. I worshiped and joined conversations. I was really proud of myself. Now it is really fun.”

What do you think about your cabin?

“I love everyone in my cabin! I have loved it since I walked in here.”

What has stuck out to you so far?

“All the camps I have been to would do a bible story. But here, we are breaking down the stories into little pieces and filling in the blanks to help you understand it more. I have felt like I have learned a lot by doing it this way.”

What has been your favorite activity so far?

“In low ropes, we did this activity where our cabin had to get us over a wall. I was screaming the whole time I was up there. I hate anything that can make me fall. But I was trusting the people behind me. It has been my favorite thing so far.”

Why is diversity important at camp?

“No matter what color skin you are, we all have God in common. Whatever else you might not have in common, just being in the same room together will help you know about other things besides yourself. I know we call ourselves diverse, but really we are all the same because we are created by God.”

 

Senior High Day 2-63Martavious | Age 15 | Nashville, TN | 2nd year

Why did you come back?

“The first time I came here, the diversity was so different in how people worship, how people pray, and how people praise God. The beauty of it was that we can all do different things but still come together as a family and worship the same God.”

How were you affected last year at camp?
“Being at Barefoot helped me rekindle and refresh in the Spirit. It put me back on fire for God. Back home, there are not a lot of teenagers who worship and praise God. To be in an environment where all of us worship God has impacted my life.”

What do you think of your cabin?

“I think its pretty cool. We have funny guys, but we have to keep it clean though.”

What is your favorite thing to do at Barefoot?

“To eat. The food is amazing.”

Why is diversity important at camp?

“It is important because no matter where you are, where you come from, or who you are now, you can all come together and worship God.”

 

Senior High Day 2-61Julia | Brentwood, TN | C.I.T | 2nd year

How did you hear about Barefoot?

“I heard about Barefoot through my church when I was about 14,15. We went to Barefoot Club. My dad is also friends with Tommy Rhodes. About 4 summers ago, I was looking for a job but ended up not working here. But the last two summers I applied and it has worked out.”

How has Barefoot impacted you?

“In a lot of different ways. The kids and the staff challenge me equally. Being able to be in a cabin with girls from all different backgrounds and all different cultures, the staff and the campers, makes every moment a learning opportunity. It is just so cool to have such a unique place in Scottsville, KY and Nashville, TN that is unlike anywhere else, where the Kingdom of God is truly represented. Its unlike anything I have ever experienced before.”

What do you want the girls in your cabin to leave with at the end of the week?

We talked about this, beginning with the end in mind and what we want our girls to say on the ride home. I think the biggest thing for me is that everyone feels loved and accepted. I think through feeling loved and accepted, trust comes out of that. Out of trust, you are able to lean on your sisters in Christ. I think a lot of people will experience for the first time what it means to be in Christian community. We wake up together, we go to sleep together, we eat our meals together. It’s a cool opportunity to know that you are accepted and loved in the Kingdom of God no matter what.”

Your favorite thing to do at Barefoot?

“This weekend I went canoeing and swimming, that was a lot of fun. I have been working with the horses. But I think block party is my favorite thing, just getting to break it down.”

Why is diversity important here?

“I feel like diversity is absolutely necessary just to understand who Jesus is and who we are as a global church. I think we limit ourselves when we are with people who are just like us because that doesn’t challenge us. The bible says iron sharpens iron, so I think the ability to be around believers who think differently and who worship differently than you is so important. It has been so important for forming my own faith. I think you grow stronger in your beliefs when you are presented with all different types of viewpoints.”

Day 3


Senior High Day 3-2Every morning, Barefoot has 10 minutes of silence. Campers spread out across the campus to spend time with God. Some read their bible; some pray; some journal. This time is powerful. Days at camp are filled with games, sports, worship, and bible stories, but sometimes we can be so consumed in the schedule that we forget to take time to spend one on one with God. But through these 10 minutes, student’s lives are being impacted. They are taking what they are learning about God to God during this time. After a day full of specialties, low ropes, and nature drop, the rain fell. We ditched free time for a dodge ball tournament in the U.N. This week, the staff has recognized God working in these students. Campers who are generally quiet during bible study are speaking up. Campers who get in some trouble are talking about how God is working within them. CampersSenior High Day 4 BLOG-4 who have not known God are hearing Him speak. Tonight, Theo, shared his testimony. He shared that although he appeared all together on the outside, he was broken on the inside. He struggled with his identity, but he kept seeking God. Pastor Will followed Theo with a message of redemption. Although we were supposed to play a new game tonight, God had something else in store for us. We spent the rest of the night in worship as Pastor Will laid hands on several students. Multiple campers committed their life to Christ. I am never able to express how God moves at evening worship. But He is speaking to these campers. He is changing them from the inside out. Please pray for their willingness to accept God’s hand in their life throughout the rest of the week and beyond.

 

Best,

Mary Kate

Senior High Day 4 BLOG-2Clark | Age 15 | Nashville, TN | 8th year

Why do you keep coming back?

“It is fun. You meet a lot of new people. Even if you think it is going to be the same thing every year, it always different every year. It’s also really good spiritual time. I feel really connected with the Holy Spirit.”

What is your favorite thing about Barefoot?

“The best thing they do is the 10 minutes of silence. It really lets people just be alone and connect with God. Most people aren’t going to do that on their own at home.”

What are you most looking forward to this week?

“Iron Man”

What do you think about adding Purple Cup?

“It’s still a little confusing, but I like it better because we can go against the girls.”

What have you learned about God this week?

“That nothing is an accident that He has done. Egypt had a really powerful testimony last night. Pastor Will just explained that God has everything planned out. Egypt was supposed to be at Barefoot and He knows everything that is going to happen in our lives.”

What do you think about the guys in your cabin?

“They are pretty cool. Whenever I come, at first I think I am not going to get along with these kids. But by the end I get to know them better and I become really good friends with. Its cool that people that I don’t expect to get along with, I do in the end.”

 

Senior High Day 4 BLOG-3William | Nashville, TN | Republic Leader | 1st year

How did you hear about Barefoot?

“I worked with Zack Moulton, Barefoot’s male programming director, at a previous camp. He gave me a call at Thanksgiving, and asked what I had planned for the summer. I told him I was going to graduate from college in the spring and was looking to take the next step into youth outdoor recreation and ministry. It was perfect timing and it has been a perfect fit so far.”

How has Barefoot impacted you so far?

“It has impacted me greatly. I feel like I am walking a lot closer with God now. Every day, I am so inspired and encouraged to seek out Christ through quiet time with the Lord, reading the word, and worship with everybody together. It’s a really encouraging atmosphere where I am filled up and able to pour out into other staff members and campers.”

How has your cabin been so far?

“My cabin has been great this week. I have code 7 crew in there and they are doing a killer job. Something that I go in expecting from them is to treat each other with respect and to treat us how they want to be treated. I also want them to understand that the cabin is the heartbeat of their time here. It is their republic and their family they have for the week. We do our best to encourage them to dive in deep with their relationships with us as counselors and with their fellow campers.”

What has been your favorite thing so far?

“My favorite thing has to be evening worship. Its an opportunity for all the campers and the staff members to join together, to pray for one another, to hear from God, and to warm our hearts to hear an awesome message. I have been greatly impacted by it. It has also opened up a lot of campers into friendships and relationships with each other and given them an opportunity and a safe place to be vulnerable and open to what God is wanting to do in their life.”

Why do you think diversity is important at camp?

“I think diversity is extremely important not just at camp, but in Christianity. Barefoot sets a model that represents the Kingdom of God, which is going to be diverse. It is going to be every nation, every tongue, every tribe. If we can do our best to encourage a diverse culture at Barefoot, I believe that it can be a great platform to bring Christ’s message to youth. There are a lot of kids here that may come from really great backgrounds or really hard backgrounds. They may not be super diverse cross-culturally.”

Day 4


Senior High Day 4 Blog-1Today, all of camp participated in an activity called Right Foot, Left Foot. Campers stood in a straight line and responded to a series of questions by either stepping left or right. The questions asked about the camper’s circumstances and background. By the end, all of the campers were spread across the field. Through this activity, Barefoot emphasizes that although the world divides us based on differences, God sees us as equals. For some, this is the first time they have ever confronted these differences. For veterans, they are still learning new things every year. After discussions with each republic, everyone gathered in a circle on the field to hear some of their peers share their responses. The student’s response was touching. While waiting for lunch, the campers started singing Lean On Me. Friends, regardless of differences, were hugging each other as their voices carried all across camp. Then, came the time for Iron Man. Campers gathered at the top of the hill to start a relay race all across campus that involved volleyball, bouldering, swimming, mentalSenior High Day 4 Blog-4 puzzles, paintballs, and pyramids. Barn Boys, our oldest guy’s cabin, took home the gold after a tight finish against Little Saints. Tonight, we changed our scenery for evening worship and met in the amphitheater. Agnes, our videographer, shared her testimony of struggles and redemption. The staff’s vulnerability this week has been a powerful tool to connect with the campers. Pastor Will followed her testimony with a message about our reflections. The world may see us one way, but God sees us as His children. After a powerful night of worship and community, we crowded in the U.N. for our showcase. Republics have been creating and practicing a skit all week that incorporates the theme, Inside Out. Dirty Socks, a guy’s team, won first place for their skit about a dirty sock who was washed clean by DJ tergent. Every group brought creativity and laughs to the stage tonight. With our bellies full of watermelon, we went to sleep trying not to think about how tomorrow was our last full day of camp

In Christ,

Mary Kate

Camper + Staff Interviews

 

Senior High Day 4 Blog-3Adanna | Age 16 | Baltimore, MD/Nashville, TN | 5th year

Why do you keep coming back to Barefoot?

“It is kind of hard to stay away. You don’t really find a place like this where so many people from different backgrounds and ethnicities live together as a community to build teamwork and leadership skills.”

 

 

What have you learned about God so far this week?

“I think I have a better understanding that He is everywhere. He is not just at camp, but He is at home too. He is in the little things like specialties, family devotionals, even the walk to lunch.”

What did you think about Right Foot, Left Foot?

“After doing this for 5 years, I have become used to where I am standing on the line. But this year, I am more content as I have grown to know and love God more. He put me in this place for a reason and it is my place in the body of Christ. The line represents where society places you, but in reality we are all united under God. I have always thought that it was really cool.”

What was it like going through this exercise with new campers?

“A lot of the people in my cabin are returners so I kind of knew where they would end up. But walking through it with new people allows you to learn new things about them. We, as people, look at the outward appearance but we don’t really know what is going on in the inside. So this exercise really brings us together.”

How is your cabin?

“My cabin is really awesome. We are almost all returning campers which is really cool. We are able to get to know people on a deeper level. A lot of our conselors are first-timers so it is cool to get to see how they do things differently. I really like them. Overall, we just have a really accepting group.”

 

 

Senior High Day 4 Blog-5Charles | Age 17 | Nashville, TN | 1st year

Why did you come to Barefoot?

“I heard there was paintball and that is what really reeled me in.”

What has been your favorite thing about Barefoot this week?

“The horses and my connection with God has been my favorite.”

What have you learned about God this week?

Regardless of what I do, God still loves me.

What did you think about Right Foot, Left Foot?

“It brought back a lot of things I do not like to think about. But I thought it was important because of Barefoot’s diversity. It helps people understand people’s differences. Some people have more wealthy parents; other people grew up without a father. But that doesn’t matter here because we are all Barefooters and we are all found in Christ.”

How has your cabin been so far?

“Oh it is great! I am living in the barn. This is the first year they have put campers in it. I get to wake up and look at the horses.”

Anything else to add? 

“If you get the chance, you should definitely come to Barefoot. The first couple of days my brother and I did not really like it. I am socially awkward and Barefoot forced me to be around people all the time. I wasn’t alright with that at first; but now I am actually really liking it. Everyone is so friendly and adamant about being your friend. My brother and I actually accepted Christ at the same time and we didn’t know until we both went down to the front. I have really loved Barefoot and it has really impacted me.”

 

Senior High Day 4 Blog-2Annie | Annapolis, MD | C.I.T. | 2nd year

How did you hear about Barefoot?

“Gabi, my freshman bible study leader in college, had worked at Barefoot the summer before and she was looking for people to come help. I said ‘Why not?’ and now I am here. It’s been one of the best decisions.”

How has Barefoot impacted you so far?

“This representation of the Kingdom of God is the new norm for me. Now when I go back to my college, which is primarily white and wealthy, I really miss the diversity in people that Barefoot offers.”

What did you think about Right Foot, Left Foot?

“This year was my first year participating in Right Foot, Left Foot fully. I was able to hear the discussion and insights from the campers as opposed to the staff. Walking them through the process of understanding how the world defines us and how God sees us, is really moving for me. It’s great to see the transformation in the campers from the beginning to the end of the exercise.”

How has it been transitioning from support staff to C.I.T. this week?

“The transition has been a bigger jump than I expected it to be. I have a lot less freedom as a C.I.T. I can’t just roam around; I have 13 kids to think about. Now my job is more focused on the campers. Support staff is focused more on a broader picture of camp. I see other campers in specialties, but now my job revolves around 13 campers. I am now able to go deeper with these girls. I love hearing their stories. It makes everything support staff does even more amplified. If support staff wasn’t there, then nothing could happen. I don’t believe I fully realized that until I was on the counselor’s side. But I am also able to see the ins and outs of a counselor’s job. They walk with these kids through tough situations. It really makes me appreciate both sides. People keep asking which I like better and I really cannot decide. I like the service of both of them. I love being with the kids but I also love the behind the scenes work.”

What is something new you have learned this week?

“As a C.I.T., I see the diversity in the Kingdom of God more clearly than when I was support staff. Now I am able to marvel in the diversity of Barefoot because I am living with the campers. I now see that diversity isn’t just surface level. People are also diverse in their personality, backgrounds, thought processes, etc. My other counselors and I all look differently and act differently, but we all have one goal: to bring these kids to Christ.”

Day 5


 

Senior High Day 5 -46Our last day of camp was powerful. We finished our specialties, swam in the lake one last time, and took a lot of group photos. We braved the rain for one of our most beloved traditions: Braveheart. This year, instead of food, we are using colored flour and paint to fight the other republics. Campers protect their republic leaders and counselors with their bodies as opposing teams throw color all over them. The cleanest pair of republic leader and counselor wins the game Not only are the campers less disgusting after the fight, but I get some pretty cool pictures. In the end, Barn Boys, our oldest guys group, came in first. However, when the winner of Purple Cup was revealed it was not Barn Boys. Dirty Socks took home the Purple Cup, the first ever guys group to do so. Now, guys have won one week and girls have won one week. After an ice cream celebration, we walked over to worship for one last celebration of God all Senior High Day 5 -109together in one place. Pastor Will used the time to encourage and pray over the campers and the staff. He brought the staff up to the stage as he prayed and campers reached out their hands. Then, each camper grabbed a partner and prayed over one another. Lastly, we prayed for the rest of the summer. Everybody in the U.N. touched every chair and prayed over the campers who will sit there in the coming weeks. We continued worship with our newest tradition, feet washing. The counselors washed camper’s feet, praying and speaking truth over them before they walk back out into the world tomorrow. The night ended with campers sharing their testimony. God is working in these student’s lives. Please pray for the continued transformation and journey these campers have as they leave Barefoot tomorrow. We have seen many campers accept Christ as their savior this week; and we praise Him for His faithfulness to these campers and our prayers. We pray that they continue the path they have begun with God.

 

In Christ,

Mary Kate

Day 5


 

Senior High Day 6-107Before our campers leave Barefoot, we hold a showcase for the campers to show off their hard work from the week’s specialities. Film Production created a mockumentary around a counselor stealing purple cup. Vocal performance sang a mash up of disney songs. Dance brought Christianity and hip hop together in an difficult routine. Making the Band performed “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” and two other songs that truly showcased all of the musical talents. Stomp begun their beat in the audience and ended on ladders, the floor, and behind barrels. This Senior High Day 6-109 copyperformance allowed the talents and hard work of the campers and the counselors to come to fruition in front of a crowd full of family and friends. Throughout the program, Barefoot hands out awards. The two recipients of the Barefoot award were Aye Aye Myint and Martavious Walker, both exemplary campers that portrayed the mission of Barefoot. Senior High 1 was an amazing group. The Holy Spirit was present this week; and these campers allowed the Holy Spirit to move within them. We thank the parents for allowing us to pour into your children this week. They were a blessing to us. We hope to see all of you back next year as the students continue their journey with God.
