Last night we had a 'Camas Reunion' at Club! John and Abbie from Camas came down and joined us for the evening, and a few of the Cre8 leaders that went to Camas came along, as well as most of the young people who went on the trip. We looked at photos projected on the wall of Church and remembered all the things we did - kayaking, playing guitar, boat trips, king of the ring, food, and fishing. Lots and lots of good memories.
We as leaders presented each young person with a framed photo collage of their time at Camas. Each young person came up, shook our hands and received a big round of applause from their peers.
It was really important for us to give the young people something like this; a reminder of those great memories and shared experiences, and something to keep hold off. We always try and do this at our projects.
And then we sat down and shared a 'Camas style' meal together. We had homemade sweet potato soup, homemade bread and homemade apple crumble and custard. All made that afternoon with help from some of the older young people that came with us to Camas this year (we have never peeled so many apples!) And then we did our chores - we washed up together.
Thanks to Abbie and John for joining us for the evening, and to everyone who helped cook and prepare for the night.
Good to remember and a great atmosphere - it felt just like it did in the summer at Camas. We are a group that has shared an experience together and that will stay with us :)
