The good news is, I HAVE been at camp! Just to catch up, Labor Day weekend and the 50th Anniversary of Camp Walter Scott was fantastic - despite the rain. We were able to introduce our kids to the beauty of sleeping in a hogan...in the rain. Our younger son balks a bit at new things and I think the rain dampened his spirit, so to speak. Anyway, I attempted to encourage him by telling him about sleeping in the same hogan while I was pregnant with him. This led to an interesting conversation later, in which he informed Matt Chapman that he had "slept here while he was pregnant with Mommy" but it worked and he loved sleeping out in the hogan!
Rekindle also sponsored one of the fall work weekends and it seemed like a great deal got accomplished! I say seemed because I personally spent most of my time looking up at the ceiling of the showerhouse I was painting. Well, that or rinsing out my older son's clothes after he sat on the freshly painted bench. :) Did I mention it was HIM who told me to paint it? But I digress...
Camp Walter Scott is gearing up for a new season - even better than last year (I can just feel these things!). There are some wonderful things in store, with great directors and counselors. However, it doesn't matter unless YOU are there. Yes, I mean YOU. I promise, there is something for everyone! Too young for a regular week at camp? Try Family Camp! Not sure about going on your own? Invite a friend or even a grandparent! (We are sending our oldest to Grandparents and Me this year - so exciting!) Finished with high school? Make Post-High the best camp yet! Too expensive? Talk to your church about scholarships OR design a t-shirt for a chance to WIN a scholarship! http://www.cciwdisciples.org/images/files/camps/Camp_T_Shirt_Design_Contest.pdf
