Camp helps us remember the simple things.

So last night our evening program was an outside event and about 15 minutes into the activity it began to rain a little. Some of our staff started to radio in to ask what we were going to do if it continued to rain. Since there was no lightning or thunder I decided lets just "ride it out" and enjoy the rain. What started out as a sprinkle turned into a downpour that lasted for the next 30 minutes. By the end of the evening everyone was soaking wet, some were a little muddy but most importantly everyone was happy and laughing.

I often wonder at what point in our life do we decide that it is not okay to stand outside in the rain? As a almost 40 year old I have to tell you that it is still fun to play in the rain! Next time it starts to rain go outside and enjoy it. Also, forget the rain coat, its more fun without one.

Hope you are having a great summer and we look forward to seeing you soon at Camp Kanata.

Your Camp Director,
