Young Life Family Camp!

A few weeks ago, our family enjoyed a wonderful weekend away at Young Life Family Camp.
Here is a little recap instagram style. I hope you enjoy it!

Welcome to Windy Gap!
Weaverville, North Carolina
Enjoy the beautiful scenery and soak in the goodness!

Sleep good in your cozy cabin.
And may your children sleep good too. They will be super tired!

Enjoy the hilarious and uplifting entertainment.
And while you're here....squeeze in a little work to earn your keep!
The Infirmary will be open 30 min after each meal. Be sure to visit the nurse then if you have any minor injuries...or need a band aid...or tylenol.
She will have a very important looking walkie-talkie radio...just in case you need her at another time. Like if you chip your tooth or bust your lip or break your arm. Yikes!
We are equipped to handle more serious injuries, but only while we wait for paramedics.
We have a great KIDS program with responsible teenagers to hold their hands.
The same teenagers that will be serving you and cleaning up after your meals.
The Gift Shop is awesome. You are sure to find a fabulous keepsake!

The CLUB sessions are fun, entertaining and encouraging! And there are always a few really great surprises too.

If you are chosen for the "How well does Dad know the family" Skit ....don't choose the wrong answer or you be dunked in a pool of Jello!
Don't be afraid to try new things. Climbing walls and super swings....horseback riding too.
The Sweet Shop stays open late. You will love the ice cream pie!
Enjoy the best family get away ever. You will want to come back year after year. Play, share, talk, snuggle and reconnect! This is what it is all about!
And since it is Mother's Day weekend...don't forget to celebrate your Mom. She will be soooooo very surprised to get that awesome ipad. She was totally expecting a Young Life ball cap or a t-shirt!

Emily was brave enough to be in a crazy skit for the final night of Family Camp. 
She is a nut! Really! She is playing the part of the Mother!

We are huge fans of Young Life! To learn more, you can check out their website here! They have camps all across the country for Middle Schoolers, High Schoolers...and Families too.
There is something special about getting away....they get that. We needed it and feel blessed to have been able to go.
Happy Tuesday! 3 more days 'til Summer!

I'm linking up here with 52 Weeks of Happiness.
And on Friday...I'm here at InstaFriday!


  1. I am cracking up over that skit! Too funny! Sounds like you guys really had a great time!
