The Camporee Theme refers to the biblical story of Jonah. The “Whale Way” is a reference to the surprising ways that God finds to safe people. The book of Jonah is all about the grandeur of God’s Grace.
In the story of Jonah even the prophet himself is overwhelmed by the Grace of God. God was gracious even to the people of Niniveh – the Assyrians. That was too much for the religious Israelite.
But it is true: In Jesus, every human being can find grace and salvation. God has surprised us by becoming human and by challenging the religious!
In our Camporee we will live through the story of Jonah. Together we will build the city of Niniveh – a big city in the ancient times that heard God’s message and turned to God. Even the king of Niniveh!
You can meet the king of Niniveh in his mighty Palace!
