Training Week .... OVER

From Monday to Friday (today) was training week. Oh wow there was a lot of training that went on! I arrived in Monticello, IA Sunday afteroon, moved in that day, and the next day started training! Monday I think was the hardest due to not knowing where really anything was. I knew where the dorms was, the office, and the pool. We had breakfast, lunch, and supper served to use everyday except Friday night we didn't get supper due to ending about 3:30.

Anyways, I was ready to go Monday morning! I had breakfast and then went to the big meeting to meet everyone! After that we had training. I have done everything that included Burma Bridge, hike, Ropes Course, Inter Course, Arts & Craft, Gym games, Berimuda Triangle, cook-out, making ice-cream, and etc! I have been BRAVE!!! As some will know I am scared of heights, I did the burma bridge, rappeling, almost the zipline, I also did a fire but it didn't go up in flames as it should of, I went swiming, did the theraptic pool, and made new friends. Oh I hiked all the way to the cave and didn't go in IT!!! The cave was WAY to small for me! Well to my way of thinking!!!!!!

So far I really like working here! I have the weekend off and then I start off Monday with Campers. I am a little nervous but in an excited WAY!!!

Nothing else is really going on I just thought I would say pray for the Dizmay's Family for losing Dustin.

Camp Courageous

To Everyone:
If you don't know by know that I have a new job, sorry I've been pretty busy lately. I know live in Monticello, IA. I work at Camp Courageous as a Counselor. I just started the job yesterday! It feels like it is Friday but it is only Tuesday and I have done SO many things here! I left Bayard, NE on Saturday and arrived here in Iowa on Sunday. It is 11 hours away from Bayard and I didn't really want to drive here in 1 day! I broke the trip down to two days. It was great traveling here and I had no troubles getting here! I moved into my dorm Sunday night. My room looks BARE and EMPTY!!! I get my own bathroom and my own room!! I have to share the kithen with the other people working here but that isn't so bad. Right now I am learning the rules of Camp Courageous and where everything is. I have basically meet everyone here except for the ones that are gone on the Nashville trip. I will have pictures up as soon as possible. Nothing really else is going on right now. I am just hoping that this opporunity will turn into a year round job and more!

Just for your information Camp Courageous is a camp for disablity people, from the ages 0 to 105. The camp goes year round and travels to different places. Right now there are two counselors on a trip to Nashville, TN. Any questions about the camp you can go to the website:
