Camp Pictures

This past week we up at camp.  This has become my favorite week of the year!!  This year was my first year as a counselor and I really enjoyed it.  I got to know everyone, campers and counselors alike, from a whole new perspective.  Plus, on the last night of camp, they had all the camp alumni go forward and sing "Because He Lives", it was amazing to be up with all the campers of years gone by!  But, if I had to describe camp in one word, it would be... Cold very very cold.  We had a low of 42 degrees one night.  There was frost on the windows most mornings.  I'm supposed to remind everyone next year to pack their winter clothes!!  
Anyway, there are A LOT of pictures... the first batch are mine, and then the rest are from Mrs. Shuster!
