The camp where we are working has a “Happy Camper Guarantee”. If someone does not have a good experience here and writes a letter explaining that “unhappy camper” experience, they get a full refund. From the kids I’ve seen this week (all 350 of them) and the kids we saw last week (all 540 of them), I don’t think this camp gives back much money!
The guys have been busy at the wood shop – and from a guy point of view it sounds like a pretty amazing shop. Lots and lots of great tools! Monday was a little different, though. It was a (much needed) rainy morning – in fact the power at the entire camp had been out for about an hour. Not a great way to greet the 300+ campers that were expected around 9AM. Well, the power came on and the rain stopped before any campers arrived. Gary and the guys got to drive tractors/trams to deliver the kids and their stuff to their cabins. I don’t know – Boys and their Toys – I think it’s gonna be a good month! (and next Monday they get to drive those fun tractors again!)
We “girls” are doing a variety of things. We’ve worked in the office, done some weeding and today we went shopping for fabric for curtains for the new health center. Three of the four of us are quilters, so yes, I think it’s gonna be a good month for the girls too!!!!
This weekend we head to the Cherry Festival. I know, I know we’ve already missed the cherry pit spitting contest and the bed races, but I’m sure they’ve saved SOMETHING fun for the last weekend. Aside for that rainy Monday, we’ve been blessed with great weather, so we’re looking forward to exploring this beautiful stretch of country. There’s lots to see and do – I’m sure we’ll have a great time!
