At KBA Camp with 'Bungee' Barbara Billy

July 11, 2014

I've been at Kiamichi Baptist Assembly [KBA] Camp in Talihina with Double Branch Baptist Church's youth group this week. I was one of the sponsors and the event co-ordinator.
As you can imagine, all of those kids wanted to do everything. So, we signed up for every sport and activity offered for the week.
Among the activities offered was a “rope challenge course” with a giant swing as well as ziplining and the dreaded “Leap of Faith.” The “Leap of Faith” is a 25-foot long pole that you climb up and have to jump off and try to grab a flag about 10 feet away from you.
