Camp rocks!

I sit on the board of a non-profit that helps with needs and provides fun and comfort for children with cancer. Its a completely volunteer organization. Every year we sponsor their summer camp. It a wonderful way for the kids to get away and just have fun. There are nurses on staff to make sure meds and chemo are given out when needed and older teens who have survived cancer serve as counselors and mentor the kids. Camp is AWESOME.

My mother and I do the crafts at camp every year so we spend Saturdays at camp. We also try to do something big and different. This year we had laser tag! It was an indoor gigantic inflatable arena with smoke and corridors and everything! Too cool

Here are some pictures of the crafts we did this year. All of these items were made by campers ages 6-15

*Framed About Me scrapbook pages*
 

 *Jeweled Foamie Vistors*

*Greeting cards to donate to the annual auction*

*Sand Art*

*Foamie Door Hangers*

*Tie Dye T-shirts*

*Campers hard at work creating!!*

It just warms my heart to see kids creating! Theses werent the only crafts either.... I just didnt have the time to take as many pictures as I usually do. I went on only 2 hours sleep thanks to Miss Aubrey's teething ... and I had her with me as well. But the kids had a BLAST... and that's all that mattered to me.
