So I have been here for over a month now and I love it so much. Also I want to say thank you to all the people who have been on my site, I don't know who you are but since my last blog I have had over 100 different people view my page, you guys are awesome! Just one thing though I love the comments I have gotten don't be afraid to leave more. I don't have much to blog about just a few things.
First I think it is interesting how many people we meet in life and how much we make a difference for them. I know many of you wondered what I was going to be doing when we didn't have camp and I wasn't sure my self but I can tell you during the non-camp weeks we have schools and such come and stay and we do programs with them, circus, nature, climbing and such. Its been kind of cool though because the past couple of weeks I have gotten some really cool classes. Two weeks ago I had a group of older kids who thought I was amazing (rightfully so lol jk) and we had a lot of fun. Then this past week I had a group of maybe 5th graders or so and they enjoyed having me as there teacher and thought I was a lot of fun. Some of them even wanted to take a picture with me and when they were getting ready to leave one of the kids asked if I could come with them. And its sweet knowing that I matter for a little bit in these kids life but then I think I will be forgotten soon and I will never see them again. Its hard in this line of work to be active with the kids and engage them and such and not care about them. But in a way you kind of have to because you only see them for one week in your life and maybe if your lucky you were awesome enough to convince them to come to summer camp then you maybe see them another 2 weeks. But it was the same thing we the Pentecost camp we did, I had a tent of 13 boys and only for one week and I will most likely not see them again and they were awesome kids too. Its interesting to think about the concept of it though, I mean how many of you have touched other people's lives and then have never seen them again or have been moved/touched by someone else who you haven't seen again.
Secondly I have yet to be amazed by the beauty of this place and hope and wish that all of you could see it your self. Pictures don't do it justice there is something captivating about being out in the middle of no where listening to nature. I love just walking around as the sun sets down by the tents when no one is around and all I hear is the sounds of birds and bugs and in the distances a dog barking. To me there is nothing
This is going to be everything about my trip. From how I feel to what is going on.
