I am terrible at updating on this. I’ve FINALLY moved out of the cabins and into the retreats so I should be able to post a lot more. We stay in the cabins the campers would stay in for the first two weeks of camp for group bonding or whatever but they are not fun to be in for that length of time! I was brushing my teeth one morning and felt something crawling up my back under my shirt, a scorpion none the less! Eugh.
This week we had Camp Janus out which is for kids with burns. It has been the most incredible few days. It’s weird because I don’t remember liking it as much last year, probably because I was nervous. This year was just so much fun and I met so many more campers too. It always makes me question myself and how I would act if I was placed in their situation. So many of them have lost fingers or limbs and when I ask myself the question as to how I would cope if I lost an arm or a leg, I genuinely don’t think I could cope the way these kids have. They have so much confidence and energy and I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to hang out with them for a few days. (It still baffles me that I get paid to do this job!)
So yes, another wonderful week at CFA!
I’ve uploaded a few photos, me on the power pole and with some campers. I’m not entirely sure I’m allowed to do that but oh well..
