Out with the Old and In with the New!

Image
As many of you are aware we are working hard to update some of our facilities out here at camp.  To those of you reading this you are probably thinking that Cabin Fever is what I am referring to here but actually I'm not referring to Cabin Fever at all.  We have just installed BRAND NEW kitchen counter tops!! Yes, it's out with the old and in with the new.



We were excited to have Brad from Legacy Kitchens in Calgary come out to build and install our new counters for us.  He did an excellent job!

Before Brad could even start working in the kitchen we needed to remove all the drawers and cupboards as well as well anything and everything that was in the kitchen to start with.  Your probably wondering where we put the whole contents of the kitchen as construction was going on.  Well where else would we put it but in the dining hall!!



It took about 3 days for the counters to be built and installed.  But it was well worth the 3 day wait!

"Rudolph the red nosed reindeer..." Ok maybe not a red nosed reindeer, but actually REINDEER! Jessica and Hannah have been helping to train reindeer with our friend Monica.  Unfortunately not red nosed reindeer like Rudolph, but I am not joking when I say real reindeer.   Monica owns a reindeer farm and she trains reindeer to take to various events in the area, she has even brought them out to Camp before.  As we all know, reindeer are not native to Alberta so you might be finding yourself asking, "How did reindeer get to Alberta?  Can they really fly?"  No, I'm sorry to tell you that reindeer cannot actually fly but they are actually real!! Many people think that reindeer are the same as caribou but that is not entirely true, they are however in the same family as caribou.  Monica has about 20 reindeer!

Jessica and Hannah have gone to visit and help train these reindeer for events quite a …
