My husband and I are blessed to work at two different Christian camps. Each year our family is allowed to attend Family Camp on both campuses.
In July, we spent a week at Mission Springs in Scotts Valley. This past week, we spent a week at Mount Hermon in Felton. Since it is a full two weeks of camp and we like to do other summer time activities, we tell the kids mom and dad will work while they are in class.
We did take the day off to enjoy an unique experience of taking a diesel train from Felton to Santa Cruz.
It was a gorgeous sunny day with a cool ocean breeze. The redwood trees are so majestic providing much needed shade.
We had a blast riding the rollercoasters and grabbing a bite to eat. It is amazing to do all that and have the ocean as your backdrop. At the end of the day, we hopped back on the train and returned home.
The week was jammed packed with fun activites such as BBQ, smores, Zumba, night swim, trivia night, slip n slide, crafts, jazz night, ropes course, archery, lawn games, hikes, bike tours, etc.
We completed our week at Victory Circle listening to folks share their highlights, having communion, and celebrating with a party at the common grounds. We snacked on popcorn, snow cones, hot chocolate and frozen bananas.
We enjoyed our time together at camp as we wind down our summer. I can’t believe it’s time for the kids to return to school. It went by so fast…
How are you winding down your summer?
