Week six has stood out from other weeks in a very heart-warming way. Since the very first day of the vacation, the cottagers have formed strong friendships with each other. When we look outside, we see kids from all of the different cottages playing together. The older ones have taken some of the younger ones under their wing, and nobody ever seems to be left out of the fun. Of course, it is not just the children that are bonding but the parents as well, with families even going so far as to invite other cottages over for dinner at night! It hardly feels like we have to organize activities because everyone is genuinely just enjoying being in each other’s presence.
Our amazing hosts have definitely added to the blessings of this week, with fun crafts and games, as well as calming and inspiring Chapel Time discussions that touch the hearts of everyone present. Overall, this week has so beautifully showcased the importance of community and how little gestures of friendliness and hospitality can go a long way. If you would like to be a part of this unique week at Waupoos, please join us for our Open House, Saturday, August 11th at 1 pm.
