weekend-of-championsMarch 13th -14th, Cup and Cross Ministries was able to participate in the Weekend of Champions Camp organized by Healing Hearts Helping Paws in partnership with Blythe-Bower Elementary School of Cleveland, Tennessee.  The camp’s focus was to encourage children in their exploration of personal strengths and to assist in redefining their growth areas to promote a healthy sense of worth.  

The camp began with a joint assembly in which the children were assigned a group and given camp T-shirts, dog tags and group-colored bandanas.  After a time of song and throughout the following day, the children attended small group activities including art therapy, play therapy, story time, music and sports. During the closing ceremony, family members were invited to participate in a time of celebration of their children.

It was an honor and delight to be able to work with the wide range of personalities as some 30 young people, ages 5-17 were present.  To see the faces of the children transform in such a sort time was a blessing.  The camp was truly a time of building champions through healing hearts.  We are thankful for this gracious invitation.
