Day 9

We woke up this morning at 7am. Breakfast was the usual, assorted bread, cereal, coffee and juices. After breakfast we split up into our respected groups: the patio crew and the painters. The patio crew was very close to finishing up our project at Woodlands camp, but unfortunately there was a large rain delay that stopped us before we were able to finish leveling and paving the last 30 stones of our project. Overall the patio looks fantastic; a beautiful stone fire pit on the middle surrounded by pristine pave-stone. A 22′ by 16′ retaining wall encompasses the patio to make sure the stones stay in place. The painters finished up the sides of the barn with white paint.
Tonight was our last night at Woodlands. We had a dance party which was a blast. There’s nothing more satisfying then seeing the smiles on the campers face when we are all getting goofy since none of us know how to dance. We did the Cha Cha Slide and so many more. We closed off the night with a solo piece sung by camper J.J. He sang My Way by Frank Sinatra and blew away the crowd with his vocals. It was a great way to end the day
