“The smell of pine trees, the campfire glowing, the marshmallows cooking,
and the breath of crisp cool air are some great things I like about camping,
but my favorite one of all is camping underneath the stars
with lights so brilliant it brightens up the deep blue sky
making you feel a sense of peace and tranquility amid the great outdoors.” ~ Author Unknown
Activity #1: ARCHERY. My daughter brought along a friend, Chelsey, and when we first looked at the list of things to do, archery popped out at her (and me). Why? There are certain sports that countries are better at than others. For example, when I think of diving, I think of China, soccer – Brazil, badminton – Indonesia, baseball – USA and so on and so forth. Well, the Koreans excel at archery and when the summer Olympics roll around, you better believe that the whole nation is watching ARCHERY. I tell you, it’s not something NBC broadcasts, so we have to watch it on the Korean cable channel. The womens’ team have never let go of the gold medal, EVER?!!! What is that? In any case, Chelsey’s dad would watch it and tell her how the Koreans do well in archery just as my dad had told me. So, it was our number 1 on our list of things to do. It was difficult at first for the kids, but the counselors were such patient teachers that they eventually got the hang of it and wanted to go every day. My husband was proud of himself that he hit the bull’s eye twice and popped the balloon. He won chocolates for all of us, lol.
