throwback of 2007
My articles I wrote of the past.
Friday morning, August 10th, 2007, 68 ACYOC youth from Montreal, Laval, Ottawa, Mississauga and Toronto embarked on a wonderful journey to Rideau Acres Campgrounds in Kingston. The youth gathered for a weekend full of fun, togetherness, making new friends, and reuniting with old friends. As the campers arrived and put their tents up, we created a little Armenian Village. The barbecue started with hamburgers and hot dogs and at night we gathered around the fire for fellowship and just having a great time until wee hours of the morning.
On Saturday morning, August 11th, additional people arrived from various areas of Ontario and Quebec. All the campers went swimming in the campsite pool, where we spent majority of the day. We enjoyed playing ball, diving into the water with different moves, playing different water games, getting some sun, and just relaxing by the pool and having a good time cooling off from the hot sun. As the nightfall neared, our wonderful Toronto ACYOC crew prepared shish kebabs and salad for dinner. The fellowship that we started on Friday night continued, as we roasted marshmallows, told stories and riddles, and had fun.
On Sunday Morning August 12th, everyone packed up tents and belongings and prepared to return home. It was a very short weekend that passed quickly, but we will never let go of the bonds we created and old friendships that we strengthened. Thank you to the Toronto ACYOC for working extremely hard for a successful weekend. Without all the helping hands, this camping trip would not have been possible.
Thank you to all 68 Participants for participating, and we hope you enjoyed the weekend as much as we did. God bless everyone and hope to see you next year.
Here is to ACYOC Camping Trip 2008!
