Greetings! I’d like to introduce you to Camp’s newest friend, “Spike Ball.”

We first met Spike Ball last month at the ACA Midstates Conference.

As I’ve reported countless times (okay, only twice) via the CG blog, we greatly enjoy attending the Midstates Conference each spring. We learn many valuable new skills at this conference, and we discover incredible new games. Two years ago we learned of Panda Ball. This year, SPIKE BALL was the newest flavor to try.

Please click on the image below to watch a short-video to see a preview for Spike Ball at Camp Gray:


Over the course of the past month, our staff – as well as retreatants that have visited during that time – have served as a quasi-focus group.  The result: Spike Ball will spike the socks right off of your feet!

The question remains: Will it unseat Panda Ball as Camp’s most popular Free Time activity? Only time will tell, my friends. Only time will tell…

Speaking of questions, we’re looking to do one more Tuesdays with Topher Mailbag before summer. Get those questions to us!

Thanks for tuning in!


Do you have questions (about CG, sports, faith, coffee… anything!) for the semi-regular Tuesdays with Topher mailbag? Email! Thanks to those that have already emailed over questions!  Check out the latest mailbag by clicking here.
