First we worked on speeches.  Each young lady prepared a speech about one or more of her favorite activities during camp.  Mrs. Umstattd excellently coached each young woman in keeping her speech the […]

Academy 31 2015 | Day Nine

This morning at breakfast, Ellen urged us to not get stuck in a box during our quiet times.  Just because we always read one chapter doesn’t mean Bible time has to be over after one chapter.  We can challenge ourselves to devour  God’s love letter to us!  We’re so grateful for Ellen speaking because it […]

Academy 31 2015 | Day Eight

Each year at Academy 31 we set aside a day of camp to serve our community.  We call it TORACAL, standing for Thirty – One Random Acts Of Love.  This concept has been so impactful to us, a new word cropped up to refer to it: the verb racol.   For example, I had a blast racoling […]

Academy 31 2015 | Day Six

“The dream comes through much effort.” We wrote this on the girls’ PT markerboard this morning as we asked them to do something most had never done before: 100 push-ups. Instead of attempting them all at once, we showed them how to do a pyramid. This pyramid had 4 different exercises, including push-ups. We did one […]

Academy 31 2015 | Day Four

Today was a milestone in the history of A31: we almost got tired of food. Hard to believe, isn’t it? Instead of having cooking classes scattered throughout camp, we decided to collect them all in one grand Cooking Day. After normal PT, breakfast/prayer talk, showers, and quiet time, the girls divided into 3 groups and rotated around […]
