How this came about is actually a funny story. I was selling some craft items on Kijiji and started communicating with a lady online. She invited me to the scrap booking weekend and I invited a friend. So we were going to drive an hour and a half to a camp and spend a whole weekend with 25 or so women that we have never met! Weird I know, but it turned out so well! We had fun, met a great bunch of ladies who like to do what we do, and we made some friends along the way.
We each had a bunk to ourselves, sleeping on the bottom!
The beds were comfortable, but boy did they squeak. As my friend Michelle said, there would never be any monkey business going on at this camp.
Here is what the lodge area we were working in looked like before and after set up.

They amazed me, I tell you. The longest I lasted was until 2 am, and an hour of that was spent chatting with some other ladies while we were in bed! Just like at real camp, like teenagers.
The camp was great. We were served three meals a day and a nightly snack. We had coffee and tea anytime we wanted. Our camp director and the cook were a young married couple from Florida. Bless their hearts for surviving a year in our winter, way out in the boonies! They lived on no modern heat, just the heat of a fireplace, and encountered many problems along the way. They were in their last few weeks here at the camp. Wow did they take care of us!

On Saturday morning we woke up to snow! I was a bit disappointed at first, but it did make for some wonderfully beautiful scenery!

Thanks for taking the time to check it out! Now go ahead and get scrap booking!
