Look What We Found

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

When you start ripping up things around kamp, you never know what you will find.  This winter, we are replacing the carpet and padding in the K-Kountry gym.  After our wonderful maintenance guys ripped out the current carpet and padding, look what they found….

For years, there have been rumors that Barn 13 had a basketball court in it, but nobody could ever confirm those rumors.  I guess the rumors can now be put to rest!  Let’s play ball.

Making a Difference

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

K-Kountry Kamper Scott Smith (Term 5) and some of his classmates took it upon themselves to make a difference in Haiti after the earthquake.  After watching the aftermath, Scott decided to do something about it by starting a fundraiser at his Morning Star Elementary School in Bozeman, MT.

Scott and his classmates wrote public service announcements, made posters, and printed t-shirts and ended up raising over $1,000 for Haiti. 

Way to go Scott!  We are so proud of you for making a difference.

A Kanakuk Snow Day?

Tuesday, February 9, 2010

Kanakuk was once again dusted with a layer of snow this morning and it made me wonder what kamp would be like with snow.  Think about it.  Snow ball fights at free time.  Bobsled runs on the waterslide.  Ice hockey on the tennis courts.  Arctic putt-putt.  Air It Out football on Lambeau Field.  The possibilities are limitless. 

Even though it would be a blast to have a snow day at K-Kountry this summer, this white fluffy stuff has made me yearn even more for the sunny days of summer!  The refreshing dips in the new pool.  The new Gospel Skit.  The friends. The laughter.  The memories.  Kamp is right around the corner and it can’t get here fast enough.  Come on summer….
