2019 Theme Song – Time to Vote

18 Apr

Each year we have an uplifting pop theme song for camp.

And 2019 will be no different. Here are your top suggestions for songs this year.
Slow, upbeat, uplifting songs work the best. Out of the past songs, it’s hard to choose a favorite, but one is “Count on Me” by Bruno Mars . We translate the lyrics so the girls can read the uplifting message. It’s a fun way to teach English.
As well as the theme song, we bring down CD(s) of fun/popular songs from the last few years. It will include the runners up from this list. If you have suggestions for that, put them in the comments here.

Look Up Child by Lauren Daigle Did you love Lauren on American Idol 2019? Did you know she auditioned and was rejected as a contestant?

Campamento 2019 Donations Request

16 Apr

This year’s donation request looks different:

  • There are no shoes!
    • Payless has filed for bankruptcy so is closing stores. At first this was cause for panic, until I realized that we raised shoe (and bead) money at the Zumba Party. So, we had the funds to buy a bunch of shoes.
    • We will also bring shoe money, so the Sisters can purchase the shoes the girls still need. We couldn’t find every size needed at stores here.
  • We have two kinds of donations this year: gift bag items and supplies.
    • The gift bags are for the girls and the Sisters. The first on the list are in multiples of 35 and are for the girls. The second set are in multiples of 4 and are for the Sisters.
    • The supplies are vitamins, medicine, and first aid items.

Here is the link to the donation list:

The girls, Sisters, and everyone involved appreciate your generosity! THANK YOU!!
