oh the days of summer camp…

Today was an amazing Washington Summer Day at Camp Gilead!

Early this morning I woke up to a clear blue sky – looking out at the pond as an Osprey sat perched in a high branch waiting for it’s morning meal.

Not too long after I woke up … the fog arrived … the promise of hotter weather later.

By morning chapel time it was warm and during camper electives…it was just plain hot!

The afternoons activities brought even hotter weather … tubing and swimming were a popular event as well as the Slip N Slide later in the afternoon.

Campers, counselors sitting in the shade – talking, laughing … building relationships.

Tonight we’ll be taking an all camp picture…in the pool…and a night swim will follow.

All of these things contribute to high energy and excitement as we enter chapel where God’s Word is spoken and taught. This is why we do camp.
