The weekend right after Summer camp is always an interesting one. It's usually either really good or really bad...this time it was both. There was tons of post-camp energy which worked for us and also worked against us a few times. We had a bunch of our camp counselors, who aren't typically there on the weekends, show up to say hi to their students and sit in on the program. The energy was so high that we had a tough time settling kids down when we needed to. Our staff was dead tired and really we just kinda went through the motions hoping to survive the weekend and make it to Monday for a little relaxation. Even though they were dog tired, the team put together a great weekend. I think what suffered most was the lesson. I wrote it about three weeks ago so I wouldn't have to worry about it heading into camp. Unfortunately, I really didn't look at it again until I stepped up to teach! It was decent, but certainly not one of my best.
