Way back when... years and years ago... I worked at a summer camp in Ohio... for four years. :) It's a wonderful place and I made some great friends. One of the guys that was there all four summers as well is from overseas and since he now has family here in the states he comes back for a visit every few years. This summer happened to be one of those years.
Mike and I loaded up the kids for the day and we headed to Ohio. I have a rule where I need to be out of the car more than I am in the car so we found something to do before the reunion started.
We went to Hale Farm where there happened to be a really large reenactment going on! It was pretty spectacular. Any reenactment that I've seen before was teensy tiny compared to this. We pulled into the parking lot with this going on...
We walked around for a few hours and just enjoyed the time there seeing things we don't normally see!
Liza met the President. :)
I kind of want a dress like this! She was stunning!
When it was time for the reunion we headed to the camp. Camp has changed soooo much since I was last there! All the cabins have been remodeled and several of the old buildings have been torn down and new ones have been built. It's really quite amazing how much work has been done there! It's a great place!
Several people that I worked with came and brought spouses and children. We have definitely multiplied!
We ate good food and enjoyed catching up with each other. The kids all became great friends and they had fun swimming in the lake and climbing the wall.
There is something about summer camps. It's a special experience not only for the campers but for the staff as well. Bonds are formed that last forever. We share memories and stories that no one else will understand. Akron Rotary Camp is definitely a happy place for me.
