For anyone who’s ever survived a Christian summer camp, the rules are quite simple… First, you have to fall in love 100 times with girls who will only ever see you as a ‘brother’ and secondly, you’re probably going to engage in the most horrifically creative group activities that the deranged minds of the youth pastors all thought up while crushing energy drinks at 4AM. Brace yourself for the childhood trauma meant to bring you closer to Jesus.
Not all of us ever went to any Christian events though. From an outsider’s perspective, it’s confusing to imagine why youth group activities, like shaving one of the church leader’s legs or letting the group splat condiments all over your head, could have anything to do with the Bible. But that’s exactly it– it has NOTHING to do with anything faith-related, which is sort of the beauty of it all. So the next time you’re nervous about being invited to the church-kid’s party or gathering on a Sunday, be prepared for the wildest games you’ve ever seen in your life.
