There are so many moments here at Camp that blow my mind and remind me how very special this experience is. We built the Chenny Shack right out side my office and I often get to watch the kids as they make pizza or grill sitting at my desk. I have a front seat view to watch some pretty spectacular moments unfold right on front of me. As I was going through my emails, I couldn’t escape the delicious smell of fried rice that was being made right outside my office. I happily closed my computer and just sat and watched a group of Super boys stand around our hibachi cooktop, intently learning the techniques to make the perfect fried rice. I could not hear what they were saying but every single boy had a smile on their face. A few of them had their arms around one another and then with the music bumping in turned into a dance party. There was food, friends, music and these boys were rocking out having an absolute ball. After they cooked their own food, they all sat down together and munched on the best fried rice. The mood was contagious and everyone who passed the Shack was seeing what I was so intently tuned into – a group of 14year old boys cooking, spending time together and just loving it. When I see these moments, I have to stop and watch your children because I am in awe of their free spirit. I sat down at their table with them and enjoyed my own delicious bowl of fried rice, made especially for me by the Super Boys.
