We've arrived at the Sabbath during our time here at camp. I am indeed thankful for the rest. We have spent the last six days staying at camp Nelu. It's a beautiful farm surrounded by lush greenery and hazy mountains in the distance.
As you may have noticed in my first blog, we had a lot of luggage
We stayed in cute little cabins all facing in toward a square, with the dining hall/everything room at one end and the pool in the center. It rained nearly everyday, but we managed to work in every activity regardless, a little schedule shuffle and we would soldier on (I need to take a moment to thank Jason Webster for doing such a phenomenal job at keeping everything moving when the unexpected would occur). The rains were actually welcome as they generally cooled things down significantly. It was warm and humid through most of the week
We kept a busy schedule, and really pushed ourselves out of our comfort zones. There was the climbing wall, the giant swing, low ropes, swimming, soccer, newcomb ball, bush hike, zip line, bush art, dance, obstacle course, archery, rifelry, orienteering, mission impossible (a team building exercise), daily Compass Checks.
It was wonderful to get to know the 20 campers, their families, and the two staff members of Nelu.
We'll have a dance tomorrow night after the Sabbath.
