|these photos are from campING not a camp, but it works|
|there'd be laundry there, not just trees and rope|
|and camp food probably a little superior to this|
|and if I thoroughly enjoy staying here, why not a cabin?|
Also, I have a transportation problem. When I had my seasonal job my younger sister was home and we had two cars. Now with her in college, and no plans to come back after her graduation this May, we are down to one working car. My father works around 50 hours a week, with a half hour commute to work. He also works a strange schedule, starting one day at 7am, another at 1pm, so having to work around his schedule really limits my availability...
|doesn't this just fill your soul with glee?|
But with a summer camp, this isn't an issue. I just have to worry about getting there and back. Once there I can either just stay on site (food and laundry are provided so there's not much reason to leave) or carpool with someone who has a car into town (like if I need to buy toiletries). I am not used to having a car, so that will be no hardship. Indeed, being stuck in the country as I am, what I miss most is people, not stores. So I will have lots of socialization in camp so I'll probably be set.
I was a girl scout for eight years, am one of three sisters (no brothers), and went to an all women's college so I understand the mindset of a girl's camp. I was a theatre major and am passionate about arts and crafts. I adore nature and am not afraid of getting dirty. I have woods behind my house I trekked in as a kid and camping was a favorite activity for vacations. And I really love the idea of a Christian camp, where I could share my faith with the campers.
|songs around the campfire... happy sigh.|
So I'm telling you about my new venture. This is a fresh idea, but one if it is to work requires immediate action. This is the latter half of the camp recruiting season. From what I'm reading, pretty much all camps will have all positions filled by mid-April. So I have to be applying actively if this is what I'm going to do...
So I'd appreciate prayers. If this is God's path for me, may I find just the right niche. If not, may He course correct me.
