About two weeks ago, Nelda and I got the privilege of traveling 5 hours to the strange, beautiful land of Cromberg where we spent the week as counselors for the lovely group of girls below. Every day was a new adventure and with it came different responsibilities. From dish duty to life guarding, from facilitating games to teaching lessons, we were kept quite busy.
For the first few days we experienced a heap ton of rain and freezing cold winds, which resulted in a lot of close bonding and get to know you games, such as people to people, where you get all up in everyone’s personal space and touch limbs.
On one of the miserably cold days we got to go on a nice little hike up a mountain to a beautiful waterfall called Frazier Falls. Even though it was raining/sprinkling the entire time, it was super nice to leave our tent-covered, concrete pad for a couple of hours and stretch our legs. What I’m calling a hike was definitely more like a brisk walk for about a mile through the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains, but none the less, it was a hike.
And on the fourth day at Camp Cromberg, we experienced a miracle….the sun came out!!!
All activities from that point on became 5 gillion times more wonderful and enjoyable. I got to go some of the most beautiful places I have ever seen in my life and be a part of an experience that I’ll never forget. Greagle Lake and Upper Sardine Lake (pictured below) will forever be some of my favorite places on earth and I got to share it with my girl Nelda and some pretty amazing kids and staff.
Below is a compilation of some of the multiple pictures I took to document this adventure and although they don’t nearly do it justice, hopefully it’ll give you a decent picture of my week as a counselor at Camp Cromberg.
