A portrait of Family Summer Camp at SMC 16

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Mathew 11:28

Let me start off by saying, I’m city girl.

I can’t deal with mosquitos bites, cold nights in sleeping bags, cold showers and silent night under stars with crickets and coyotes.

In contrary, my son loves nature. If he could live in the mist of the bushes somewhere in the world. He would. So, every once in awhile we run away from the city’s chaos and emerge with the nature.

I first discovered about Caledon, Ontario through Family camp at Scott Mission, when my son was attending daycare. Every since then, we are off to camp by the end of summer. Wow, it’s been now 5 years. How time passes by?!

“Lets go, mommy!” my son blurs out. So we packed and went.

It is always a bitter sweet experience. One day was swollen arm from bee sting, and no joke last day I woke up with a swollen eye, still trying to figure out how haha.

But the well spent time with my son and bounding with other families would make it up for it.

Some of the activities included canoeing, climbing high ropes, swimming, sports, games, arts&crafts facial and devotions from moms.

I left energized, relaxed and ready to say goodbye to summer.

Leaving you with a collage of pictures ;
