Every summer I have the pleasure of being a director for one session of camp. It takes a lot of work throughout the year (and the week leading up to it is C-R-A-Z-Y) but the actual week of camp is an absolute blast. unless you count the snakes. always lots of rattlesnakes. and yellow jackets. and ticks. hmmmm-
Really though, I get to reconnect with old friends and make new ones. I've watched some of the campers go from being little girls to teenagers, and now they're young adults. It's an experience I have really enjoyed and hope to continue doing for many, many years to come.
I wouldn't trade it for anything. although by Friday I'd trade it for a soft pillow and a long, long nap. So long to you for the next week... say a little prayer that I don't meet up with any angry snakes, OK?
