Some of the kids in this group are not fond of being away from home, some are afraid of heights, and I'm sure there were some other fears that needed to be overcome as well. So this was a big thing for a lot of these kids.
Despite a bit of rain at times where it didn't really matter, it was a fantastic three days. I think all the kids had a fabulous time! The Engineer and I as their chaperones enjoyed it very much!
A few highlights:
Canoeing through the locks.
Our overnight campsite.
Fishing. The boys were up at 5:20 am the next morning to fish.
How not to do archery. ;o)
High ropes instruction.
Walking the cat walk.
Doing the possom.
Some pre-swimming discussion.
A games night while it stormed outside.
Climbing Mt. Moriah.
Love these kids!! What a great three days!
