Seven families attended Family Camp on April 22-24. Families were given the opportunity to forget about the stresses of hospital visits and just be a normal family for one weekend. The weekend began with each family making a family crest and sharing their story and family crest the other families. All the family crests were displayed all weekend for everyone to enjoy. Friday night’s family activity was tie-dyeing t-shirts and a campfire with s’mores. The kids danced to energizers around the campfire while enjoying their s’mores.
Saturday morning started in the same fashion that all the camps start, ENERGIZERS! Parents have coffee in the morning to get them going, while the kids have energizers. Arts & Crafts and the indoor ropes course were the first two activities on the schedule. For many families, this was the first time any of them had been on any type of ropes course. Everyone who wanted to, climbed up the rock wall and came down on the zip line. The zip line was a highlight for many families. After lunch, families rested then everyone gathered for family photos. The rest of the afternoon was spent at horses & barnyard and the giant swing.
After dinner the moms, dads, and kids split into three groups. The moms went to spa, the dads went to photography, while the kids played sports. This was a chance for the moms to bond with the moms, the dads to bond with the dads, and let the kids just be kids. The night ended with star gazing. Thank You to Tammy Raulerson, Heather Morgan and Adam Henderson for their endless support!
