Camp Agape 2008 Portland Oregon Aug 9th 2008
This past week we went to camp with my family, my daughter being a cancer survivor. We go to this camp for a few years now. In the beginning, when our daughter was freshly diagnosed. This is a yearly camp for children with cancer and deadly disease and their families as well as families as families with children that had cancer. It's an oasis of hope for these families that go through so much.
During the 6 days, the duration of this camp, the organizers, volunteer their time to make the families and their children have fun and relax. They offer all sorts of activities for children and for adults as well. The fun began with arts and crafts, magician tricks, rock climbing, trampoline jumps, slides, jet boats, camp fire, play ground, massages, haircuts, nail painting, face painting, fishing, Mad Scientist from OSU, buddy program (each children is accompanied by an teenager for a period of time, so the parents have some time of their own), fishing (catch and release), swimming in the river, karaoke, dancing, clean private or shared cabin, tent spots, volleyball, pink pong and good food.
The three meals are home style prepared by an army of volunteers that take time off to dedicate this time just for this. Below are the families and the volunteers that put so much love and dedication to organize this. May God bless them for all their great effort.
