Day 36: Des Moines Iowa (off day), July 14th 2019

The team slept in until 8 o’clock on this beautiful Sunday morning in Des Moines, Iowa. After waking up and circling up for the day, the team enjoyed a wonderful sponsored breakfast of bagel sandwiches and lots of coffee. After breakfast the team staged up for an arrival to Camp Sunnyside where we got a tour of the facilities. Once the tour finished and the team chowed down on some delicious pizza cooked by Camp Sunnyside’s amazing chefs, we returned to lodging where everyone enjoyed a little free time for a few hours. The team took the vans to Adel, Iowa, where we had dinner with Mr. David Adickes and his family. After a filling meal of tacos, the team got a wiffle ball game going in the yard. After many thanks for a wonderful weekend with the Adickes family, the team said its goodbyes and returned to lodging for some well-deserved rest.
