This year was Madison’s first foray into camp. Unlike Logan , she would not go without me. I also sent Logan solo because I sometimes have a tendency to over compensate for him. It was one of our steps to seeing if independence was possible for him. That’s another post entirely. This is about Madison’s first attempt at camp.
Off to activities then lunch then off to classes. There was a central meeting spot that the children all descended upon at a certain hour. After attendance was taken , they were off to their class then brought back to THE SPOT to meet up for the next class. The chaperones took this time to run to Wal-mart for supplies if needed or to volunteer in their classes with them. I did a little of both, making runs to Wally world for bottled water and going into the rooms to take pictures as well. If you have never been in Florida at the end of June then you don’t know that the average temp. is over 100 with a heat index and lots of humidity. Blech, it was HOT!!!
All three girls picked the same classes so it was easy to round them up and keep track of them. They had lots of fun together. I really lucked out with awesome girls that have a heart for Jesus. I’m not saying that just because one of them is my daughter. I see God using these girls in a mighty way!
Every day ended like this! Yes, we had 2 dorm rooms with 2 beds in each but everyone ended up in the same room. It was ok with me. I would have stayed up all night worrying about the other room anyway.
The week culminated with a final worship rally where we said goodbye to our Bible study leader, Nate. We enjoyed getting to know him along with the children. He was lots and lots of fun!
