We just finished our men's and women's seminars this past weekend. They were amazing as always. The ranch is getting ready to take on the winter months. Mike just finished winterizing it today. The next time we will welcome visitors will be during the Turkey Day Retreat. We can't wait either!
If you need some information sent to you about Turkey Day, please contact the ranch office at 501.623.5983.
Stay Strong Everyone! Remember the year long commitment! You are being prayed for daily. See you soon!

Girls won fishing derby last night and they were thrilled to say the least! You should have seen the pictures being taken of Butch and Susie. WOW! The guys handled the punishments well...It did rain a little last night after everyone was in their bunkhouse and it is very overcast today. Which, I have to say, makes for a perfect day! A little breeze, the sun behind the clouds! Perfect!
Tonight we have girls night guys night. It's always a fun night for the kids.
This has been a really fun camp to be with. The kids are so into everything we are doing. They are laughing and playing and making the week one of the best one's we've had if not the best!
We still covet you prayers so keep them coming. Thanks for letting us play with your children this week. They are awesome!

Yes! It did rain yesterday but the kids were able to go to all 4 of their activities. The rain didn't slow us down at all! Last night, we had evening activities and the guys won the fishing derby which made them very excited! Today, the weather is beautiful. There is a great breeze blowing across the ranch and all the kids are enjoying their time here. Thanks for your prayers. I will try to keep you updated on the events. Tonight, we have girls night/guys night. Always a fun night.

Last night was hoe down and it was a blast! We had an old time country hoe down and hamburgers in a back pasture on the ranch. Right before we loaded the wagons to go to the field, it rained. It cooled everything off and it made the whole night a huge success.
Thanks to everyone for your prayers. We can't believe that this session is almost over. We really have had the best time with the campers this week. Tonight is carnival night and it is always the funnest night of the whole week. After carnival night, we have drama skits, the last devotions together, ministry time and graduation. It is a very full night.
Thanks for visiting the blog. Hope you have enjoyed hearing about your campers this week and thank you so much for choosing Brookhill!

Well, it was a very interesting night here at Brookhill. We had our evening activities and of course, the most popular was the the fishing derby! It's a fishing competition between the girls and boys. For the first time in several summers, it was a tie! That almost never happens so it was very exciting. When it's a tie, the counselors have to bear the "punishments". You should have seen the counselors... they had a drawn 3rd eye on the forehead, a mustache, they had to walk like penguins... its was hysterical and the campers were truly enjoying the show!
Vespers were amazing and so many lives have already been touched. We appreciate your prayers. Keep them coming. Tonight we have girls block party and guys game night. It's always one of the funnest nights of the week.
Keep you updated soon.

Last night we had Girls Night/Guys Night! It was so much fun. The boys had tournaments in the pavilion. Ping pong, basketball, fooseball etc... They also had the coke hut opened just for them. Meanwhile, the girls went to Fun Swim, boyless! It was so much fun. Then, the girls had a block party on girls hill. Party lights, lemonades, candy and a little sing off was all apart of the night. It was fantastic!
The weather has been wonderful! As soon as the sun goes down every evening, there has been a cool breeze for the evening activities. It really has been a wonderful week so far!
Thanks for following us on Blog Spot. Hope you are enjoying hearing all of our news!

Hey there Brookhillers and parents of Brookhillers... Staff training is just 1 week away. I'm excited to be writing this blog and keeping you all updated on the progress made at the ranch. The bumper boats are out as well as all the small lake boats. The rock wall and trampoline are ready to go at Water Rides! The cabin doors are looking better than ever and the pavilion and cafeteria are amazing! All the activities are cleaned and ready to go.
The only thing we need to do next is put up the Tee Pee for nature. It's always comical watching that huge tent go up. I'll try to get out there and take some pics of that happening.
We are jumping out of our skin waiting for you all to get here. And hey parents, follow this blog the week your child is here and I'll keep you updated on the days and the weather and how much fun everyone is having.
Bring a friend and come join us... www.brookhillranch.com for more info!
Talk to ya'll soon. LYNLEE
