We spent our Memorial Day weekend at Covenant Pines Bible Camp in northern Minnesota for their Work & Worship Family Camp. Basically, you go free (paying a little for meals) in exchange for helping the camp get some work done before their summer camps start. We worked all day Saturday. I scraped and painted a cabin while the boys and Beth picked up sticks (Beth traded off at the end).
On Sunday we had chapel in the morning followed by a "hay" ride. The rest of the day was free time.
I got in on a rousing game of human foosball.
The boys and I went out on a boat and some some loons.
And the boys spent plenty of time playing on the cable ride, play center and other places with their new friends.
On Monday we had a flag raising and Memorial Day. Many people in attendance had family members or friends who had given their lives in the armed forces, served or are currently serving.
I think the part we enjoyed most were some of the relationships we developed in the few days there. We enjoyed the company of several families--most were from the same church, and we got to join them in their own prayer times before meals.
Of course, any time on a lake in the north woods is a good time.
