OMC 2009 Thus Far

Thaddeus | June 26th, 2009

Hey all, it’s me again – Tad. You may remember me from my previous efforts as a blogger. If not, check ‘em out sometime!

Well, as a 21 year-old, it’s my last year as a camper here at WV 4-H Older Members Conference. I’m pretty saddened by the whole affair really. I’m really not sure how long that I’ve been here, but that’s not really what is
important about my relationship with this place and this camp. The important thing is the way in which I’ve been able to grow through my experiences I had here. The leadership opportunities that I have been given here have
helped me to become the person that I am today. But enough with that boring stuff, here’s what has been going on this week:

I’ve been in a cottage with a bunch of my best friends here, and it’s been pretty wild. It’s not as if we’re burning the place down, but there’s been a lot of fun this week just catching up and having a good time. Our room is a
complete disaster area, but it’s all good – I’m sure we’ll get it together when needed.

I’ll talk about the most recent and exciting thing that we did in camp here, and that’s the camp party. Tonight we had a dance and snacks and all that good stuff. The dance was HYPE. As always, I out being a dancing machine. I probably sweat at least a quart….AT LEAST. Luckily, I didn’t pass out because water was bountiful, but my legs are going to be feeling terribly sore tomorrow. I played basketball for a while today, swam, then danced
myself silly. I’m really surprised I was able to dance that well at all tonight after so much physical activity. That just goes to show ya, 4-H camp= healthy place to spend a week. I’d like to go on and on about my camp
exploits up to this point, but sleepiness is creepin’ in.

You’ll hear from me again soon. I may also be reporting from elsewhere in
the state. I do this stuff for money when I’m not being a camper myself.
