This past week I had the amazing opportunity to be a counselor at Camp Tadmor. I took 374 pictures between Monday around 4pm, and Friday around 11am when I had to take off for freshman orientation stuff. Here are a few (ok, a few more than a few) of the pictures that I took.
My good friend and co-counselor, Zinny. (Camp name, not real name.)
Our girls were as crazy as their counselors.
The whole group (plus one who hung out with us till her parents headed home).
Monday night a lot of the parents joined us for a BBQ down by the lake.
Cozy, Shaggy, and Nifty did a skit throughout the week that was both hilarious and well done.
Tuesday morning going on a scavenger hunt to get our pancakes.
Our amazing sweeper.
We got paired up with a guys cabin, and were named the Radical Radishes. Each morning we would go do "low-ropes" which were different activities to help build trust. (Above is the trust fall.)
The game in which Zinny got a concussion. (I threatened to re-name her Crash.)
Giant swing time!
Every day we had several hours of free time in the afternoon, and a lot of it was spent down at the lake.
The skit continues...
Singing "How Great is Our God" with a bunch of young kiddos = one of the best things ever.
Water recreation! (The Radical Radishes won.)
Hot dog roasting time.
Each of the boys had to cook a hot dog for a girl...it was rather comical to watch.
Lined up for dinner.
Anybody want a ticket to the gun show?
Some of the group that was brought from our church.
The speaker (Adam) was really, really good. He talked about brokenness and love, and we were able to have a lot of really good discussions with our girls afterwards.
Doin the Mohawk-Walk.
Because I had to leave for freshman orientation stuff, I wasn't there for the last 24ish hours. T'was rather disappointing, but I got to be proud from afar when I got a call from all my girls saying that they had won the contest!! (Throughout the week you won points for different games, etc. and whoever had the most points at the end of the week won these big, black afros and bragging rights.)
It was an amazing week up there, and I am very much looking forward to when I can go back. But for right now, I think I need to go do laundry...
