Day 261 - Overnight Camp

Thought of the day: Jasmine just completed a week-long camp with a friend at Colorado Mountain Ranch. They did crafts, gymnastics, archery, hiking, horseback riding and even a Thursday overnight. It was clearly a lot of fun as Jasmine came home tired and happy every afternoon. Other than spending time with parents, visiting cousins and grandparents and vacationing at the beach, it's outdoor camps like this that make the summer a magical time for the kids.  They are lucky to have so many camps to choose from. Many of these camps have enthusiastic and dedicated instructors who used to be campers themselves. The spirit of the camps were thus passed down from a generation of campers to the next. Perhaps one day in the not-too-distant future, Jasmine would qualify to become a counselor in one of those camps herself and help keep the magic of summer alive.

Can one night of camp do this much "damage" to the clean faces and clothes?  Yes, it apparently can!
