Camp Timberledge Young Teens 2009

Before the “work week” begins tomorrow, where I have tons of blog posts to write, anecdotes to convey and reviews & giveaways to begin, I am going to write my annual camp wrap up post. I have written one every year, mostly when my blog was read just by a handful of friends and campers. So if you are a regular reader who this may not be of interest to you, but I write it just the same for those who it means a lot to. To those the following paragraphs will hold laughs and fond memories. To the rest it will just be a bunch of nonsensical dribble…nonetheless check out the video at the end!
