Hello Parents! For those of you who don’t know me I’m Frances Lindsey, Camp Mom. I truly have the best job at camp by having the opportunity to visit with your kids and love on them all throughout the day. So I thought you might like to have a “peak” around camp though a Mom’s eye…

We started off the day with a delicious breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and cantaloupe. From there we head to cabin clean up. I do believe you will be impressed with how well your child can make up her bed and sweep. After the cabin is spotless and the trash is taken out everyone heads to club meetings. It’s fun to hear the leaders teaching club songs and to see some of the older girls doing the younger girls hair into braids.

I had the opportunity to teach Pottery again to the second period girls in groups 5 and 6. We had such a fun time making pinch pots and I believe some were even made for moms back home. This class gives me a great chance to talk and get to know your girls. Many of them are talking about their summer reading books. I must say as a former teacher this makes me so happy.

One of my favorite times at camp is Beli Deli. I especially love it when I have the opportunity to “work a line” where I take your child’s order. You would be very proud of how nicely they ask for their treat AND how they say thank you. The most popular treats these days are the Frios (popsicles). My personal favorite is Strawberry Mango but lately we’ve been selling out quickly of the Caramel Sea Salt. Other popular choices lately are the Gluten Free Salt and Vinegar Chips with Vitamin Water.

And my favorite activity at camp lately has been Sally’s Bible Study. She has this older group of girls thinking about what kind of friends they want to surround themselves with, what kind of friend do they want to be and what is their friendship with the Lord. She also has them understanding how they are fearfully and wonderfully made in God’s image. My hope is that they all glean something from this study and you will see results of this in their daily life.

Tonight’s Nighttime activity was Get Skyline Back. It’s a fun club competition where their counselors dress up as boys and steal the club captain, flag and box. Then the campers go to a designated place in camp to “take back camp” from the “boys” while the “boys” throw cootie bombs at the campers. Once the campers have captured all the “boys” they then search to find their captain, flag and box. Please look at the pictures and see if can figure it out. You might need help from your camper when she gets home to explain it. Winners are Mounties 3rd, Rangers 2nd and Troopers1st.

Goodnight from Lookout Mountain!
