Summers always mean a few things: I’ve got weddings to go to (only 8 this year) and that I put all fancy restaurants, wine and trips to the farmers market on holdĀ so that I can spend my weekends at Camp Endeavor.

Now it may sound like I’m complaining and I surely do my fair share of it, but I’ll gladly trade wine for a bunch of hormonal teenagers. (Hey, I never claimed sane) These kids mean the world to me and agreeing to spend a month with them can sometimes feel like a wedding vow – through thickness and thin – but nothing can beat seeing kids who struggle with weight and self-esteem laughing with new friends, running to the lake and trying new foods.

I can’t wait to share more of this experience with you, we’ve got a great one coming next week!

    I was a camp counselor for 3 years ALL summer long, and I LOVED it. i would go back in a heartbeat. I miss those kids so much, it’s crazy that some of my campers are counselors now!
