Everything went well at the airport this afternoon and the dutchies and Germans were checked in without problems. The St. Louis departure seemed to be very normal and we hope that continues until they reach home.
Friday night the families and the guests had a party at the Laufketters and karaoke was the main event. Groups combined and sang songs and had a great time. Once again, we have built new friendships and have lasting memories of the past week's experiences.
A special thanks to the host families who so generously opened their homes to our guests and provided them with a wonderful time. For many of our families, this is their second experience as host families and they enjoyed even more the second tiome around.
Thanks to our guests for coming over and making the week special with the European flair. We feel very fortunate to have this Camp taking off and doing so well and we look forward to another good experience next summer (July 19-24, 2009).
All of the guest left with a video of the week thanks to Ray Cataldo, one of the hosts. That will provide many moments to remember the week's activities and the people involved.
Thanks to so many for so much !!
