For the past 3 summers, we have spent a week at Camp Mardela as volunteer staff. I direct the Culinary Arts Camp, Steve is a support person, and the kids are campers. This year Kieran was the pianist for Performing Arts Camp and part of the CIT Staff (counselor-in-training), meaning he did whatever was assigned to him from kitchen help to leading the name game.
Enjoy this peek at our week as we re-enter regular family life back home. It was a full week with a lot to process and marvel over regarding redemption and the faithfulness of God.
Here I am in my camp kitchen, wearing a custom designed (using Sharpies) apron, with everything lined up to prepare the day’s creation. And there is Mr. Steve, always close by to lend a supervisory hand or toss in a load of laundry.
Kieran accompanied the music for the performing arts singers using lead sheets. I am a proud mama. He played well. Kirk discovered that he could play the djembe, which meant that after the first two nights, I was back to just singing during worship time.
The girls kept busy, too. This is Coco at breakfast and Roo enjoying some quiet time with her book of memories.
Little Mae enjoyed having ice cream over baked oatmeal for breakfast one morning! Her dream meal, for sure! There is Steve in Krabill Hall, the dining/multipurpose building, in conversation with another counselor.
It was a fun, full week of growth for all.
