Wordless Wednesday: July 24, 2013 (w/linky)- Tabitha's First Year at Camp

This year was Tabitha's first opportunity to go to Penn-York Camp. They have a Mini-Camp where they only stay over 2 nights instead of a full week. She was excited but nervous, quite typical.

Of course I had to get some pictures of her going to camp and of us picking her up.
(Which is why this Wordless Wednesday is late, we just got home from picking her up.)

Off we go! Our flat travelers came along with us to see her off.

Arrival at camp.

Getting her bags

Off to her cabin

The girls and the counselor carried all the bags. There was nothing left for mommy and daddy to carry. Granted, she was only going for two days, so there weren't that many clothes.

She was assigned to Cardinal.

Choosing her bunk.

We played at the park a for a little while today and then had a picnic dinner before going to pick her up.

Arrival at camp to pick Tabitha up. She seemed happy to see us (at first). Seems she would have liked some more time at camp. 

We put $10 in the camp store for her to purchase some snacks and souvenirs. She purchased a flashlight and bug net. 

Look at the big bug she caught!

Amelia had a lovely idea to make Tabitha some welcome home muffins. We made them before leaving the house earlier in the day.

Looking forward to seeing your Wordless (or not so wordless) Wednesday posts this week.
