Everyone wears a color-coded arm band, which lets camp security know you belong there (protection of campers). Students have one of several colors based on which church they are with, while leaders have purple bands. Purple bands denote authority, and let you cut in line for breakfast and dinner to eat first and get to the leader meetings. The auditorium seating is color-coded to show where each group sits. Each color band will include several churches; the leaders determine seating within their section. The colors move between sections for each service so that nobody always gets stuck at the side of the stage. Ideally the leaders switch their groups between front, back and middle rather than try to hog the front sections. At times in the past that hasn't happened much but this year it worked pretty well.
This year we only had workshops on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday we had a session for counselors while Mark handled an extra teaching time for the teenagers. Workshops are mostly taught by youth pastors, who teach on whatever is on their hearts. In the past we have also had workshops run by musicians, artists and others.
