I Went to Summer Camp!

Every summer, Child & Family Services sends underprivileged kids between the ages of 8 and 14 to Camp Spaulding, for 2 week sessions. There, the kids get to play on the ropes course, practice their archery skills, canoe and kayak along the river, swim, create arts & crafts, learn woodcraft, and various other summer camp activities. The best thing is that the families don’t have to pay for their kids to make life-long memories, and the kids also don’t know that this is an underprivileged summer camp.

For the past several years, my company has collected money from our employees, and purchased games, equipment, and necessities for the kids and camp. This year, we collected over $200 and bought the kids various kits, puzzles and games to create “Rainy Day Kits” for each cabin. Because of our donation, the camp invited us to come down for the day and get a feel for what Camp Spaulding is all about and get to meet and hang out with the campers.

The marketing department left the office around ten this morning and headed off to camp! Felt like I was a kid again. We received a tour of the camp, where we got to peek into the boys camp and the girls camp, and got a glimpse into all the different activity areas. After a tour and history of the camp, we went into the dining hall where we got to sit with the kids at lunch tables and enjoy the typical lunch routine. The kids all had responsibilities, whether bringing the food to the table, clearing the table and putting everything away. It was great to connect with the kids and see the happiness that they get from attending summer camp.

Upon getting back to the office, I was wiped out and ready for a nap. I powered through the work day with my strawberry banana Chobani yogurt with a dash of sunflower seeds and raisins, before calling it a day and hitting the gym.

Post Camp Fuel

Evening Workout

  • 1.7 mile run
  • 15 minutes Nordic Trainer
  • 2 sets of 25 medicine ball sit-ups

I was WICKED hungry and had errands to run quickly after the gym so I didn’t want to overdo it.
