"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." - 2nd Timothy 2:4
Today was a Wacky Wednesday at K-Kountry, which means we slept in a little bit later, the schedule was changed around, and kamp got even more hype! Instead of going to klinics or optional period in the morning, we had our annual track and field day!
Track and Field day is such a special part of Wacky Wednesday, and kamp as a whole, as it is just another chance for us to honor each and every kid! Our staff, dressed up head to toe in crazy costumes and characters, wait at the finish line to greet every kamper as they run down the track to meet them at the end. You can see the smiles on kampers faces as they run to the finish line towards as a rooster, a knight, or any number of wild characters!
While the crazy characters help make the morning in to what it is, what separates the track and field day portion of Wacky Wednesday in to such a spectacular day, however, is the amount of pure joy found on this day that captivates and inspires each and every kamper.
To be able to cheer on their tribe, compete alongside their friends, and find encouragement at every single turn, brings irreplaceable memories to kampers that lasts far beyond the gates of K-Kountry. The best parts of this morning though, aren't the times when a funny character makes everyone laugh, but when new friends made at kamp come together to encourage and lift one another up after a race well done.
