We were greeted this morning with a beautiful sunny morning.  Camp continues to go well.  The kids are having a great time and really enjoying being outside today.  It is hard to believe tomorrow is the last day : (

Today in the smallest age group they made toucans...

A one camper took a nap....

The middle age group continued learning about the rainforest through puzzles and word searches...

And the oldest group finished up their week long project of making mirrors..... (thanks George!)

This morning we woke up to a torrential downpour, that we soon found out had flooded the basement where we do lunches.  In true PV fashion, volunteers rushed down, fixed the loose pipe and started mopping, sweeping and scooping out the water.  Everything was cleaned up and dried up by the time camp began.

Despite the continuing rain, the camp has picked up kids each day.  Today the kids went into their groups early to work on rainforest projects since they couldn't go out back for recess.  The children continue to be a joy to work with and they seem to be enjoying themselves.  Enjoy a couple of pictures from today.

PV Potluck

What a great night the PV Potluck turned out to be.  We are so thankful to be part of such a wonderful program.  In total, we had 45 volunteers come and share in a meal and in fellowship.  We hope to continue this tradition each summer.  Enjoy the pictures!
