From the beginning of the weekend I was so excited to get the campout started. I could not have asked for a better way to spend my Friday night than staying up to 4 am listening to the boys be so full of energy and excitement about the new adventure they were a part of. I could not have asked for a better way to spend my Saturday than hiking to an incredible view and learning about the history that was all around us. I could not have asked for a better Sunday than getting to say See you later to a great group of guys. Some of my favorite moments were getting to experience some of the "firsts" with the boys. I loved how through just having fun, camping was used as a way to teach the boys about leadership and the right way of doing something. I was taken aback by how--even when they were crazy--the staff loved being there and how I could easily see that they saw such potential in every child and worked on developing them into responsible young men.
I could not have asked for a better weekend and am so ready to get right back out there and do it again.
