Camp Little Springs

Due to Hay's health problems, she was not able to go to 5th grade camp with her peers to Camp Big Springs. With the help of a super neighbor, we were able to create a type of camping experience on a smaller scale which we now call, Camp Little Springs.

A few things we did include make camp shirts, distribute purple bandanas, and peace sign ribbons for the girls' hair. They had two sleep overs. The first night it poured rained out so the girls slept in doors, but the second night they were able to sleep in a tent in the backyard. 

I made sweet Chex mix the first night then Jell-O popcorn balls the second for the girls to snack on.

I gave the girls a little treat bag with peace sign buttons, Chupa Chups Spanish suckers, Flarp Noise Putty, poppers, bottled water, and a bandana. We also included a glow stick necklace and jewelry. I put the goodies in a clear cellophane bag and tied it with a tie-dyed ric-rac ribbon.

 After our hike, we stopped in at the Sundance Deli for gourmet suckers and Sundance cherry and oat cookie bars.
 I purchased white cotton t-shirts from Wal-Mart along with silver-metallic, peace sign iron-ons for a touch of bling! It took less than 20 minutes to iron on the decals following package directions.

 A beautiful night sky. No stars visible, but the colorful clouds drenched in camp colors was pretty groovy too!

 One special and sweet surprise was the girls made crepes one morning and served me one with homemade raspberry jam in bed. They followed the recipe, cooked, and cleaned up all while I was still sleeping. I was so very impressed!
 I took the girls on a hike in the mountains. We identified a couple plants including oak and Jacob's ladder. So that was good.

 Remember: Stay hydrated!
