camper adorables

This kid was a favorite for so many of us on staff. He is from China. He speaks adorable broken English. And he's the sweetest, funniest kid. His dad was in the US on business and so he came to spend a few weeks as a camper with us.

Every time I saw him all I could think was that this little guy will go back to China with stories of a camp in the USA. He will tell his friends about songs he sang in chapel (he was trying so hard to learn the words!) and the stories he heard like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego (just imagine that in broken cute!). He will tell his friends about the banana boat and snack shop and his counselors and the pool (where he wore a swim cap and goggles). Our own little camp ambassador in China!

I love every single one of your posts on camp life/campers... but this might be one of my favorites. This kid just stole my heart.
