"Then God said, 'Let there be light'; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day." -Genesis 1:3-5

It’s Thursday and dinner is over. You are filled with all sorts of emotions. Contentment: the food was delicious. Sadness: the week is almost over and you have to say goodbye to a group of campers. Excitement: the week is almost over and you really need a break. Anxiety: it’s skit night and you’re not quite sure what will happen when your campers take the stage!
Soon, your unit is gathered with all of the others at Hillside. One by one the units take the stage to perform the skits they have worked so hard to put together. Your unit’s number is called and you gather them on the stage, help them take their positions, calm their fears (or maybe it’s your own?), pass out any last minute props, and then you hear the words – the magic words: “Lights! Camera! Action!”
