Jump Camp

I've been busy this week stressing out about the whereabouts of my kids, pick-up and drop-off parking flow charts, getting good parking spots, not hitting other cars, and not running over curbs and parking cones.

It was the first time the kids have attended a popular mega-church camp that has scared the bejesus out of me since I heard about it. Driving by, it looks like a carnival and a water park mixed together with thousands of kids running around. That's not an exaggeration - this year they broke their attendance record with approximately 6,200 kids divided into two weeks of camp.

The first morning of camp, the kids are bouncing with energy and by pick-up time on the last day they're shells of what used to be your kids. (And with all the face painting going on, you're not really sure who you'll be taking home or if you're picking up the right kids.) They're tired, crabby, but boy, do they sleep well at night.

It's really a shame that they take everything so seriously. Clearly, these kids don't know how to have fun. 

The kids had fun, I'm amazed at how organized the camp was, but I'm glad it's over and am ready to have a week off from any camps next week. Here's to a great weekend! Cheers!
