Why is it that kids get squirrely when it's time for bed? And why are they suddenly hit with a bout of the most intense, potentially deadly thirst? Can anyone answer these questions for me?
Finally, they are quiet and I'm taking a moment to open my laptop, review my Camp Scabs budget, pay a few camp bills, review the registration list. My camp partner is on hiatus and I miss her. I miss her for a lot of reasons but one of those little reasons is that she has amazing organizational skills. The kind of skills that make spreadsheets and stuff. I use sticky notes.
One of the most amazing bits about camp is all the people (especially compassionate men) who have donated, time, talents, extra hours at work and cold hard cash to the Camp Scabs cause; thousands of dollars and hours upon hours of time. The Camp Scabs Scholarship Fund has been especially cool to watch. These men are buying airline tickets and paying baggage fees and sending gas money and renting suburbans to help ladies travel from all over North America to Camp Scabs cities. I'm humbled.
Never were these men asked to donate. They are just kind and generous. They reached out to create this opportunity for you. They work behind the scenes.
I was curious, so I filtered through my sticky notes. There are now 105 Camp Scabs Alumni. Out of these alum 48 received scholarships! I think this is remarkable.
