Bible Camp (recap)

This was our 4th year to help at Black Mesa Bible Camp. It is in Kenton, OK. Waaay up in the NW corner of Oklahoma. Over at the end of that sticky out part they call the Panhandle, or "No Man's Land." Not in the humid part. Not over East. Not in the forest. Not where it rains a lot. I just explained this because nobody knows where Kenton is. They always start off saying something like, "oh, it must be really humid there." NO it is a desert! Even before I heard about BMBC, I knew where Black Mesa was. And from that I could make a pretty good guess what the weather was like. I'm not going to go into much details about the camp because my huge readership already has heard me talk about it. I just thought I would share some photos.

Friendly helpful staff and counselors. The guy on the left looks a lot like Dawson. Did double takes all week. Tall guy in the middle is a clown. Always cracking jokes. You can see by his expression he has something funny planned. Guy on right knows how to cook meat like nobody's business. Very good cook.
This is the "Mesa Monster" most years some counselors get the kids all worked up telling them stories about the Mesa Monster. They have others go around the cabins and make noises and scratch around on the walls, etc. This is at night, and this year we (other staff) were standing out there acting like we were looking at and talking about something in the trees. One guy drove his car over and turned the lights on like he was trying to spotlight. You would be surprised how many of these kids fall for it. Any way, I took this picture of the monster and was showing it to the kids the next day. It is fun, but we have to be pretty careful, because like I said some of them really are gullible. And do get really scared. It is a hoot none the less.
Mess hall and chapel.
Kid's "Cabins" They do have a little air conditioner, but are still pretty stuffy.

Our "cabin" on the left. Thanks Papaw. Pulled by the big white "goat". I had my class there on the right in the folding chairs. It was in the shade in the mornings when we had class.

Real Man's Grill! 8 burners, two tanks. About 1,049,45,684,783,473,763,739,568 BTU when you get thirty burgers on there dripping grease.
This is a few miles away from camp actually across the line in Colorado. Can you figure out why they call it "Indian Rock"?

The rest of these photos are just some random pictures around camp.
