This summer I had the privilege of getting to be camp nurse again for a week at Camp Maranatha.
This is the third year that I have spend a week nursing at Maranatha.
It is a relaxing week with lots of energetic staff, counselors, and campers.
The staff go to ridiculous lengths to make the week fun.
BTW, this is isn't their regular attire. Well, not regular for most days.
There is an evening where the kids have to eat dinner without utensils or hands.
Cannonballing into the mud pit.
A second after this picture was taken was these folks looked very different.
The counselor-in-training (CIT) group spent most of their first week team building.
Allison and her best friend Harriet were training to be counselors next summer.
There were campers doing just about every version of camp activity imaginable.
like wall climbing...
learning how to macramé a bracelet...
(You know that is coming back, right?)
and making homemade ice cream.
Allison and Harriet had plenty of time to play in the water.
Always the infamous Banana Olympics.
Fun on the water toys.
Slipping and sliding.
These CITs are going to make wonderful counselors next year.
Paintball capture the flag.
For some friendly competition during week
the campers get divided into the Alphas...
and the Omegas.
As you can see, the campers really get into the team spirit.
I love this sweet young lady and am so proud to be her mama.
She will be wonderful at anything she chooses to do.
She loves kids and loves the Lord.
She will be an amazing junior counselor next summer.
