I'm lying awake at camp
"What is camp?" I asked in our first year at a parents meeting at Madonna.
Several folks piped up to explain it is a camp where the kids and teachers stay overnight at the 4-H grounds near Louisville, NE. The kids participate in all kinds of nature and outdoor activities.
The first year camp was available to my son, we thought he may not like the overnight aspect but when the time came, we went for it. We listened to him share his experience. He felt safe and comfortable because he knows all the campers as they all attend his school.
Coach V. asked me three years ago if I would consider being a parent volunteer. They needed adult males to stay with a group of young lads. I agreed.
Which brings me to tonight, or rather early morning, as I cannot sleep. I lie awake thinking of so many awesome events I’ve witnessed today. Even on my third camp with Madonna, I am emotionally awake at what has transpired around me today.
