Glad to Be Back
We’ve let nearly two months pass since our last post and my understanding in the blogosphere, that is an eternity! So sorry for the delay in our return and I do hope you will forgive us as we took time to regroup and refocus. We’re hoping to be a bit more personable in our interactions here with you. We’ll continue to talk about all that is Camp WeHaKee as it is certainly the center of our world. But perhaps we’ll also take some time to share about ourselves – what’s up in our family’s life and maybe even try to occasionally answer the proverbial question posed to camp directors the world over ~ ‘What DO you do the rest of the year??’ So here goes!
In case you were wondering! After the departure of our main group of staff on August 8th, we and the remaining key staff members began to prepare for Family Camp and Auntie Camp. With eight very active families, Family Camp was a blast! The weather was stellar (sunny, warm & dry) and it was fun to watch the family members young & well, not so young enjoy the activities throughout camp. The ‘Clue Game’ special event was a particular hit! Camp fires each night were also a great way to relax and get to know each other!
Auntie Camp (i.e. where Sisters bring their nieces & great nieces to camp) also went well with the usual group of attendees! Rain moved in on the evening of the traditional talent show, but we have always done that in the dining lodge, so it was not an issue. It was a great evening where we shared our gifts and a lot of laughter along the way!
Some family reunions followed and several of the Sisters gathered at camp over Labor Day weekend. And a church group from Ladysmith had a beautiful and warm weekend retreat in mid-September bringing the extended camp season to a close. It is a shame that such a beautiful & special place has to shut down so soon! But, Joe will continue to remain at camp throughout the fall, winter and spring, working each day to ensure camp is in even better shape for the return of the staff and campers come next June!
Thanks for catching up and we promise to be more ‘regular’ in our postings so you can feel a connection to WeHaKee until we’re all together on Hunter Lake next summer!
