Hey Theresa, what's Houseboat Camp?

Post by Connor Smith on Tue Jul 15, 2008 3:46 pm

Julia said it was a church thing, but that's about all she knew.

So what is it?

Haha well, I'm glad you were so helpful Julia. Smile

Basically, we drive a bus down to a marina, then put our bags on a boat, then drive that boat to a lot of houseboats tied up together, then live there for five days.

Each houseboat itself holds at most 20 people, give or take a few. For example, my boat had 19 senior girls and 4 leaders.

There were maybe twelve boats all tied up together, and each one held a specific age group, and then also the staff and the cooks and the tech people.

Once we all settle in, the fun commences. Smile

We basically eat, hang out on top of or in the boats, go tubing and wakeboarding, make multiple anklets and other such jewelry (I have six, Marissa and Sarah have 8...), swim in the lake, have worship and a talk every night, and just have fun...for five days.

It is the best camp of my life.

And this year's camp was the best ever.

I'm so sad to have had to leave. I almost cried.

Ohh...that'll be so much fun! I love little kids, even when they're annoying. That is one of the perks of my job. Haha one of the only perks...

Haha giving into peer pressure.

Sarah's pretty good at doing that. I convinced her to sing with me at houseboat...she said she "didn't want to" but you and I both know she's pretty fun-loving. Wink

Then why can't one of you get her to randomly burst into song and dance in the halls of Westview?

Really? She must not like you then... Because every time she sees me she bursts into song. But then again, a lot of people do. I inspire music.

Who said that there was any difference? Wink
Music and dancing always seems like madness to those who are ignorant and hate musicals.
Poor guy, you'll never understand.

Or better yet, we could all come up with some song and sing in unison!

And now the idea has been killed because there's no way that'll happen.

No, you guys are allowed to make fools of yourselves. I'm allowed to watch and get jealous if what you do works out.

So what kind of song are you thinking?

Well, since we're probably going to make up a song, then that doesn't really matter.

Fine, I guess we'll just leave this to Theresa or Michelle.

Heck, maybe even Sarah.
