I am totally happy as a parent when I am outside “playing” with my children. A highlight over Christmas vacation was the adventures on frozen Whitefish Lake! We walked, we skated, and we played with the dogs. We laughed and visited with family and friends as we marveled at the beauty of nature. It is in those silly moments that the bonds of family are strengthened.

The same is true for our campers as they become part of their “camp family” – it is in those moments of gazing at the stars, watching the sunset, or dangling their feet in the water, that they come to value their deep friendships with each other and the beauty of nature! Let’s partner together and “play” with our children!
