Home At Last!

Summer is over, and fall is just around the corner.

What does that mean for me here at camp????

My daily activities will now include:
1) Going through summer files and changing them from 2010 to 2011, updating as needed.
2) Harassing people (parents, businesses and agencies) to pay up!
3) Planning for the 2011 summer!
and 4) Preparing for our year-round activities.

This year we are having our usual Fall and Spring Ultimate Days. This is where campers and camper's friends come up to camp for the day and hang out with staff and participate in activities. We like to have them do things that they might not get a chance to do in the summer time. Events like this are a great way for people to reconnect and stay excited for summer camp! We are also hoping to have a winter getaway (fingers crossed) in December sometime. This will be like Ultimate Day but with winter activities over a two day period.....which includes sleeping over.

I am excited about the fall and the new things that it will bring!

I am also excited for Marc and his flourishing theatre company! We were at a wedding on Saturday and he received 4 job offers, 1 of them being a very serious one....which he is looking in to! It is exciting to see where God leads and how He opens doors!

We are blessed!

Well, that's all form this office girl for now.

Until next time! (Keep fit and have fun)

Where Has The Summer Gone?

Today is August 19, 2010.

Have I really been at camp for 2 full months now?

Why did the 10 months of prep work for the summer seem to last forever, the summer comes and kids arrive and in a flash it is over.


That's the only word I can really use to describe it.

This summer has been an interesting one.....full of many highs and lows, life changes, big decisions, campers, food, people, and hardly any time at home in the city.

I am glad to say that Marc was with me for pretty much the whole time! That was a nice treat!

I just can't believe that in a week I move back home, back into the real world.

Things I will miss about camp:
-waking up whenever because breakfast will always be in the kitchen and it only takes me 30 seconds to walk to my desk
-jumping in the lake whenever it is too hot
-listening to young kids talk.....when they don't know I am listening
-talking with camp friends, about life and things
-not cooking or's been so nice not to have to do this!
-the sunsets on the lake
-trips to Gimli
-walking through the field at about 8:25pm and hearing the kids in the Wigwam and at Fireside singing praises to God!

I am sure there are more.

All I can say is "What a summer".

Am I ready to do this all over again??????
