Not having a cabin full of campers is a totally different ball game. I'm used to having kids with me and being responsible for the campers 24/7 because I've always been a counselor. This year I'm a part of the program staff. We run the activities and don't sleep in a cabin full of campers every night. The first night I was in charge of making burgers with Cooper out in the Outback, the wilderness area. You should have seen us! We were grillin' machines.
|We had a bunch of burgers left over at the end of|
the cookout, so we gave them to Gideon, the camp dog.
I think he enjoyed them just as much
as we did because he ate every single one!
|the kids go all out in Arts n Crafts in|
preparation for the hunger games!
|Hunger Games fierce|
Guarding has been a lot of fun! The kids love coming to swim and I love watching the joy they get out of cooling off from the hot sun!
Another plus of being on program staff is that I get to live with this awesome person: meet Bettis Morelock. She's the arts n crafts director for the summer!
The sessions have been going smoothly and the campers are having a blast. We are praising God and lifting up Christ and are having a blast doing it! I don't think I could ask for much else.
This next week is a short one (Wed-Sat). This session is called Pee-Wees and Parents. Parents come with their children who are too young to come to camp by themselves for a couple of days.
I've had such a nice weekend off! I don't head back to camp until Wednesday so I've got some more R & R time!
Hope you've had a good weekend and happy July!
ps. I feel like I owe y'all an explanation for the lack of posts lately! Camp's internet has been kind of finicky lately and it's difficult to get a good enough signal to do frequent posts like I would have liked to do. I'll try to make more time for posts this week, but if not, then recaps will for sure happen at the end of the week.
