Happy Camper version 2
I'm going to stick with the Young Life theme today and tell you about the second best camp experience I ever had. 2006. I had never actually left Charleston for more than a week. Some how, some way I applied for YL summer staff. And some how I got it. In British Columbia. Hot damn. I will admit that I had a panic attack/mild heart attack at the air port gate, begged my dad not to make me go and maybe cried... Short of the story is that I made it to camp. And never wanted to leave. I made the greatest friends from all over the country. I also forgot long pants... I can't explain it, but YL life camp is life changing. Malibu Club in British Columbia is magical. Good things are pretty much guaranteed to happen. And happen they did:) I also happened to score the best job ever possible. I was in charge of the dock and stuff. Stuff as in boats:) Basically I spent my entire day on boats, on the dock and talking to people. With a slight chance of a nap in side my dock house.. We also got to chill with Bob Goff at his house. And got to play street hockey every week. I was sold..
