BE CREATIVE CAMP - BUTLER SPRINGS 2022 - Awards Ceremony and Camper Recap
We end our week with a podcast featuring the campers. First off was our awards ceremony, during which we recognize one outstanding thing about each of our campers—from taking the most pictures to taking the most naps, this one was especially fun. Then, we turn it over to the campers for shout outs and to share their favorite memories from the week.

BE CREATIVE CAMP - BUTLER SPRINGS 2022 - Days 1-2 Breakdown: Bread Baking and Kimber Bird
At the largest week of Be Creative Camp ever, the BeCre staff takes a moment on Monday night to reflect on the first two days of BeCre 2022. While the campers are working on their photo challenge, the crew chats about the themes for this year, TRIAL and BURIED. As a part of their daily activities, the BeCre Middle Schoolers baked bread over a fire to symbolize communion. Meanwhile, the BeCre High Schoolers role played as lawyers, witnesses, and jury members in a parody of the real-life Johnny Depp trial. Finally, amidst many interruptions from one group (whose camera died four separate times during the recording of the podcast) each staff member shares a highlight or two from the week so far.
