Today was overflowing day of beauty, exhaustion, excitement, and sadness. We began our day hike through the mountains. Climbing the 220 steps ... well I think 220, the person's counting kept getting interrupted by others ... to the observation tower offers a panoramic view of the mountains and surrounding communities. The hike down the mountain offered many opportunities to slips and fall; thankfully without injury. The trek downward also provided the opportunity for rock collection. Collect a rock and sneak it into someone else's bag.
Later this evening we gathered around the campfire for the traditional kielbasa sausage and chocolate-marshmallow covered faces and fingers. Its a treat that is loved by both campers and staff.
Our next one a step in the goodbye journey. We sang and danced some of the favorite songs and then enjoyed a video presentation prepared by Lisa of the whole camp experience. Before we were finished the tears were flowing as everyone anticipates tomorrow's departure and the close of Jawornik English Camp. Tomorrow holds an ever more emotional day as we pack the bus and head on our way. God blessings to all the campers and counselors.
