This summer my three oldest had the opportunity to go serve the staffers for a week and then stay on for another week as campers.
My boys each came home with stories and a few bug bites!
The first week they washed dishes, cleaned the dining room, and cleared trails:
Unexpected free time during the first week.Gaga Ball!Bailey and the middle schoolers doing a team-building activity.
Airborne Bunny!I LOVE this picture!
While all three boys told me the second week (the week they were campers) was great, they unanimously said that the first week was their favorite. They were serving and serving hard. Exhausting work. Hayden wants to go back for a three week serving session this summer but our summer is already almost over. We don’t have three weeks left for him to go. (We will be starting school pretty early to be able to finish in time for an overseas move.)
We’re telling him to prepare now in case he wants to buy a plane ticket to serve next summer. Camp Eagle has stolen our hearts.
