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 â€śrope challenge courseâ€ť with a giant swing as well as ziplining and the dreaded â€śLeap of Faith.â€ť The â€śLeap of Faithâ€ť 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.
