GAD Camp 2002!

GAD Camp 2002!

GAD Camp 2002!

P7050059.JPG Here is the mother of all beetles, i should have put my hand beside this bugger. Actually i am sure there are larger ones out there but i was impressed and if you didn't have enough troubles sleeping at night these things fly!

P7080057.JPG Here is a counselor and some campers i can tell you that (from the left to the right) the 2nd person is Jessica Wienfield (think i spelled it right) and the second to last is Alexandra the elected camp president, great girls.

P7090003.JPG This is one of the counselors, Gina Hey (in the gray T-shirt) teaching the campers how to play the recorder.

P7090013.JPG This is Joe (left) and Nathan (right) playing ping pong, the campers (well the males anyway) got alot of mileage out of this game during camp.

P7090019.jpg Here is Ira (sticking her tongue out at me) and Ana two of the moldovan counselors, really nice (and helped me with some russian vocabulary).

P7090076.JPG Here is Carrie, Alexandra, and Nadia. Carrie wasn't too hip on dancing at first but all it took was each of us (Alexandra this time) dragging her out to the center and dancing. You can't tell here but Nadia is quite the singer (poor thing had to sing without a microphone for the talent show).

P7090082.JPG This is Irina (far left) Lisa and... i forgot (email me if you know her name please). Lisa is not Adrienne but has alot of energy nonetheless (obviously ;> ).

P7100035.JPG Here is Irina playing the guitar, she sings as well , and is quite the dancer (wore me out ;>).

P7100039.JPG Here is Mihal and Gina singing the theme song for the soap opera "Passions", it was meant as somewhat of a joke but i am not sure everyone caught on to that. Anywho one of the worst tv shows *ever* but it is a hit here even among some (brainwashed) americans.

P7100042.JPG This is Sarah Meyers singing... but i can't remember what exactly it was she was singing.

P7100127.JPG Lovely legs! Actually these are the legs of two of my patients that managed to somehow maul their legs while dancing, so the Band-Aids are my handiwork (thanks to Sarah for the bandages).

P7110038.JPG Here is Lisa Bunker (red head) and Carrie Ellis (aka partners in crime). This is while Lisa was armed with a water gun (i believe Carrie was a victim in this picture) in one hand and some sort of truth or dare origami thingy in the other...

P7110043.JPG This is Mihal, one of the truth or dare victims that chose "dare" which was to go to the front of the bus (in front of all the campers), sing and dance around (fortunately my "truth" was a no brainer).

P7110049.JPG This would be Gina another "dare" victim who had to go to the front of the bus act like and a dog crawl to the back and pee on a chair or two (what'da good sport).

P7110051.JPG Speaking of good sport the sweetheart in the back "waving" to me would be Anna Cavnar <sp?>, One of the advantages of a digital camera is that i have 128 pictures i can take which allows me to take pictures rather indiscriminately. Poor anna was repeatedly one of the victims of my camera happy photo sprees, no doubt i will be beaten to a pulp if she sees this picture ;>

Here are some of our campers from one of the girls cabins

Mary had the idea of making temporary tattoos using some stamps from her stamp collection and needless to say the campers loved the idea.
