There are so many memories tied up there, so much joy, so many tiny moments that add up to the warmest memories. My parents actually met there, and then brought us back all throughout my childhood. Is there anything so special? So when we had a chance to bring our own little family again and again, I never had any doubt that it would become part of our special memories, too.
Having the time there, set aside to just be together, is beyond a gift. It was everything I love in one place, with my people. There were party nights with different themes, dancing, good food – it was so much fun! We went cliff jumping, went on waterslides, I watched my kids go crazy over the giant slip n slide. We spent a day out on the boats, navigated through ropes courses – there was so much there to do and see and enjoy, together with those that are dearest to me. I couldn’t ask for more than that! And even more than every fun thing here listed- its the TIME. The sweet conversations, the bible study reflections, the worshipping as a family, the movement that happens every year in our hearts. Its a beautiful investment into our hearts and I am so grateful that we make it a priority every year!
Until next year, Family Camp! You have been a beautiful adventure.
