This last Wednesday and Thursday was our junior high ministry’s annual guys’ trip called Burly. It’s an awesome 2-day overnight event full of manly stuff all over Orange County. We took 45 students and 8 leaders, and covered a lot of miles to do some awesome stuff. I could write all about it, but my friend Dillon Phommasa was a volunteer for the trip and blogged about it already. Best part: there are almost 200 photos from the trip on his blog! Check out a piece of the recap he wrote, then head over to Dillon’s blog for the rest of the recap and all the photos.
Sometimes in youth ministry you just have to be a kid, and BURLY is a perfect time for that. Burly is Wildside’s annual guy’s trip, where we jam pack as many activities as possible along with all the junk food possible into two days. This was my second year at Burly and we did a ton. On the first day we watched a baseball game, went to lazer island, ate at a local pizza place in corona, played some dinosaur thumbwars, had a broomball tournament, watched the Sandlot, and finally went to bed! On the second day we ate breakfast at Chick-Fil-A, drove over to Speedzone, played arcade games, road go-karts & dragsters, played some minigolf, ate lunch at Pat & Oscars, bowled at Bowlmor in the District, and then finally went home.
