Going to Summer Camp
I dropped my daughter Leila at a friend’s house today to go to one of her summer camps. For this one we have to provide the transportation – Lions Camp Tatiyee – in Lakeside, AZ, a four-hour drive from my house. Leila just loves this camp and has been attending for several years. This is the week for adults who are mentally challenged.
She gets to eat junk food, do go-karting, swimming, and lots of fun things. This morning when I picked her up from her house to go to her ride she was so excited, a real advertisement for the camp. The camp provides great value to her – fun and socialization with friends. And often times the same counselors come back year after year. They get as much value from the campers as theh give.
Did I say mutual benefit? Sounds a lot like network marketing is supposed to be.
Years ago I learned that others received so much from Leila, it is definitely a two-way street.
The Lions Club provides camp for no cost and in this climate donations are down due to the economy. We saw after some of our country’s disasters a big downturn in the amount of camperships available and it was definitely first come first serve. If anyone out there wants to donate he or she can check out http://www.arizonalionscamp.com/Home_Page.html.
Or, donate to any organization that helps people with disabilities have some much needed recreation. For some, Camp Tatiyee is the only time they get away from their regular lives.
How about I let Leila give you a report when she comes home!
Wishing you all a chance to go to your equivalent of summer camp, (I think “Mommy Camp” is a spa!),
