Last week I counseled at my first summer camp ever!
I have been to this camp before, but never as a counselor. I embarked on my maiden voyage with my churches Children's Director and ten 3rd-5th graders. Jonathan, my mom and grandmother were home with Allee so I felt like everything at home would be just fine. I just needed to keep cool. I have never left Allee home like this before.
How was Camp Cowen you ask?
I LOVED IT!
It was a blast! So glad I got to go! Here are the highlights!
My cabin had 12 girls in it. Two are not pictured here. Not sure why. I think they opted to not join our nightly dance party.
Traditionally you can send mail to campers. My girl (in pink) had to dance for her mail. Too funny!
Here is the group we brought from our church.
This is the main area where we enjoyed free time. So beautiful here!
My favorite place at Camp Cowen is the outdoor Vespers area. It's so tranquil. Vespers is always held in the evenings and the children are expected to not talk when they enter and exit. It amazed me to see almost 100 children be so reverent. It was a beautiful service.
Campfire was so fun! I haven't been to camp since I was 8 and I don't even remember campfires at all. This was such a fun experience!
The camp theme was Hebrews 3:18 "Jesus is the same yesterday, today & forever." The camp directors decided to go with an Americana/Captain America theme. It was fun!
As you can see I got into it!
I even bought a camp shirt!
Will I go to camp again? YES! As a counselor? MOST DEFINITELY!
Welp, that's todays post! Thanks for stopping by!
