What I did this summer…June 29-July 12!

August 17, 2011

St. Tikhon’s that’s the place to be joy and fun are here for you and me!

Well joy and fun eventually but first several days of back breaking labor and wicked late nights (like the 5am night my co-director pulled…).  This year was the first year Kim, Nick and I directed the entire camp, in addition to the Teen Program. The intense amount of stress involved was crazy, but it was well worth it! Here are a few pictures of the week,  I just wish I took more!

Camp started on July 3rd and we were all greeted with crazy storms that caused a Noah like flood through the pavilion, where I just happened to be set up for registration. It was fantastic… not really…Lucky for me the rest of the week was great and I’m pretty sure the kids had a great time too! We will have some great photos and information posted on our website so check it out!www.sttikhonscamp.org
