tee-shirt time

Cody and Emily spent the better part of two and a half days last week rolling tee shirts ... and not just any tee-shirts ... our 2011 camper tee-shirts!

Prayer Requests ☆ Please pray for our 2011 staff team.

We don't have much for photos from round two ... although I heard rumours that Rachel from River West was wandering around with a camera. Rachel, can you hook me up with some photos? In addition to Rise 'n Shine, our staff packed up and headed down the road to another camp for our annual CCI / Alberta Conference . CCI stands for Christian Camping International, and it's one of the camping organizations we're part of. It's great to get together with camp staff from across the province to exchange stories, ideas and encouragement! Emily is our new blog queen -- I'm loving that she has lots to say. Thanks, Emily!
