It seems like it was just yesterday that we we were talking about staff training week, and how excited we were for the summer to begin. Flash forward six weeks, and you come to find that lifelong friends have been made, memories that will last forever were created, and the best six weeks you could ever imagined had flown by. As cliché as it sounds, time truly does fly by when you are having the most ridiculously, unbelievable, crazy fun time!
Working at Kanakuk K-Kountry is unlike any other job in the world, and I believe that is a very, very big understatement. Because where else in the world do you get paid to ride down water slides, toss kids in the pool, dress up like the slough monster, go down a zipline, run around kamp trying to find hidden commandoes, save the day from certain annihilation, and minister to the future of the world in the greatest possible way?! Nowhere else, but the happiest place on earth!
What an unbelievable privilage we have working at such an unbelievable place, with such incredible people. Hand picked from across the entire country, from TCU all the way to Rhodes College, the Kanakuk K-Kountry staff is compiled of some of the most phenomenal people you could ever meet. It is times like this that you realize that words truly do not do any justice for the amazing work these people have done!
Coming in to kamp, hardly any any of us knew each other; but after these six weeks, we had all become a family. You have run an incredible race session one, and passed the baton off to session two by setting an amazing example. I wish that I was better with words, just to better say how much you have meant to us session one! The best I can do, however, is say that from everyone here at K-Kountry...we love you all!
