Off to Camp
The camp is about a 2 hour bus ride from Augusta. Everyone meets up at the hospital to check in, hand over their medications, and get on the bus. Some kids are giddy with excitement and others are really shy and reluctant to leave their parents. Mollie was sort of indifferent when we first arrived; she recognized her buddy Zackary, but he was in a funk because of his cabin assignment (but he did have cool blue hair!).
But when Katie arrived, Mollie lit up! Katie and Mollie were in the same cabin last year (and went to the same elementary school), so it was a great reunion. After chatting a bit, the two went in search of other girls in their cabin. I overheard them introduce themselves to one little girl by saying, "And what do you have? A port? I had seven shots- 3 in my legs and 2 in each arm. " And so on and so on. That sums up why this camp is so important.
The drop off is also a mini reunion for parents. Next year I need to remember to bring some folding chairs and cool drinks!
