Camp ReCreation

Yesterday I drove Elizabeth three hours (both ways) to Richardton, ND, to be a counselor at Camp ReCreation---a summer camp for adults with developmental disabilities. Each camper is paired one-to-one with a counselor. This is THE highlight of the year for Elizabeth. In fact, she loves it so much that she will be a counselor for both sessions of the camp. This is her third year as a volunteer counselor.

Next year she hopes to bring Grace to the camp with her. We joke that Grace will probably need two counselors because she is so busy! I miss my Elizabeth, but am so happy that she enjoys this camp almost as much as the campers!
