Camp in Review

Mornings are beautiful here!

 Here are some pictures and videos from the last couple weeks of camp...

 Teen 2 Pit Crew

Teen 2 was easier than the previous couple week because we were feeding 30-40 less people.

 Making sun-dried tomato basil pesto sauce to serve over chicken and noodles.
It is so yummy!

 My friend and I went kayaking one day, then it started raining and chased us back in. ☺

 Sarah was Mr V. for her cabin's skit.

 And here is Mr V. He has a lot of fun with the kids!

 Sarah and her best friend.

 Slaughter in the water!!

 Evening Chapel

 I love Friday night campfire!

 Sarah and I got to Skype Esther! We really miss her, but it hasn't really set in that she will be gone for a while.
When I get home, it will hit me because she won't be sharing a room with me for the next year or so.

 We were able to do a group Skype, so we got to talk to everyone at home at the same time!

 Junior 2 was the easiest camp this year because our highest number was 70. I kept thinking that I didn't have enough food because I cooked for double that number the first Junior camp.

 Some of the operational staff played instruments in chapel during the singing.

 Slip 'N' Slide time!! You have to get wet first, or you won't go very fast. The water always feels cold, but also good after being in the kitchen.

 Soap in the face!

 This is what happens when the camp photographer leaves her camera in the kitchen. 😂

 One of the best nights for the kids! Food trucks showed up to deliver them food.

 Staff special.

Sarah, Alana, and I while we were shopping with my best friend. I am going to really miss seeing her everyday, but at least she doesn't live 26 hours away anymore!

Here are some videos from this summer...

Most people didn't know who this was until they told everyone Saturday morning. There was one cabin that thought it was me. 

Oh, Ichabod...

I am really thankful for all the messages this summer. It was really cool how a lot of the speakers mentioned the same things, or the pastor of one of the churches I attended this summer mentioned something that was taught during the week, or my personal devotions would have a verse about one of the subjects from Chapel, or when we cooks would have our devotions together every morning, a verse would remind us of a message from that week.

I am looking forward to being home soon!
I have really missed my family!
The one week I did go home to tell Esther goodbye, I cried a lot on the way back to camp, both tears of joy because God was leading my sister on an adventure, and tears of sorrow because I am not going to be able to see her for a while. That week was extremely difficult because I was physically and emotionally exhausted.
I am very thankful for the strength God has supplied, and for all who have helped and encouraged me this summer.

I am looking forward to next year!!

And Asa cried unto the Lord his God, and said, Lord, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O Lord our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O Lord, thou art our God; let no man prevail against thee.
2 Chronicles 14:11
