camp good news. this was my summer home for over ten summers of my life. it was where my husband and i technically met at the age of fourteen (although didn’t start dating until years later). i spent time here training as a cef summer missionary then working as a program director of the camp’s wilderness program. now we come to drop of our son for a week. his first time at camp. his first time for many things, i’m sure.  sleeping away from home for more than two days….is what worries him this most.   but, we dropped him off with out incident.  he barely wanted to say goodbye.  we left him just a few hours ago and i miss him so much already.
