Camp is Great!

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

Session 4 has been unbelievable so far!   We have had some thunderstorms, but we are continually amazed at how they seem to hit at the perfect timing to not interrupt many of our activities.  The sky is mostly sunny and the weather is warm allowing us to have days filled with non stop fun!





If you ask any K-Kountry Kamper what their favorite memory of kamp is, 9 times out of 10 you will hear about our zipline!   It is an incredible place were smiles are inevitable, memories are made, and courage is born.   Many kampers can start the activity scared, and then through encouragement they are able to find an inner strength they didn’t know they had. This courage allows them to step off the platform and go for one of the greatest rides of their life.   Once they hit the water at the bottom, they only want to get back to the top as quick as they can to go again.   It is amazing how a cable and lots of safety equipment can instill confidence, courage,  and a memory to last a lifetime.

Thanks for the great pictures of the zip line. My grandkids always talk about it and these pictures really help me visualize what it is like for them. I come to closing ceremonies every year but have never gotten to see the zip line actually in use.

I also loved Emily's blog about K-Kountry.

Nathan and Gretchen (my grand kids) have had a ball finding pictures of their counselors from years past in the pictures. Thanks for a great blog, Rachel!!!
