We’re speaking at a week of family camp at the Christian Reformed Conference Groundswww.crcg.org in Grand Haven Michigan.  400 acres of wooded bliss on nearly 500 feet of frontage on the shores of lake Michigan…this isn’t camping its “Glamping”.

Meticulously manicured flower beds, paved roads with cement trailer pads, activities galore, this is camping paradise!  And there are children playing all day…EVERYWHERE! It’s a place where life long memories are made.

What strikes me most is watching the early morning activity around these 150 camp sites and 9 family cabins. The interaction of mom’s and dads with their kids is a precious site.  Mom’s serving bleary eyed youngsters cereal or pancakes on the picnic table.  Dad carrying his 3 year old baby girl to the bath house for an early morning emergency potty.

It’s parents being parents.  It’s what moms and dads do.  But most importantly it’s making memories that will last a LIFETIME!

Summer is NOT over, you’ve got time, go make a memory…even if its just a day…GO!
