Deban and I traveled to the Czech Republic for a mission trip in early July. We were part of a four person team that traveled to Slaný to lead an English/Basketball Camp. This was our first time in this location, but our team leader, Amy Blumberg, has been coming here for many years. Our fourth team member was Hudson Standbridge, an outstanding young man who was brave enough to travel with three old ladies.
I have so many photos to share from that trip, that I’ve decided to divide them into three blog posts: Signal the Frog, general sightseeing photos, and photos from our English/Basketball Camp. Some folks may be interested in seeing all the photos, while others may be more interested in one category than the others. There will be some spillover from one category to the other, since Signal was with us for sightseeing, geocaching and the camp. I invite you to browse through whatever interests you, and skip the rest.
During the English/Basketball Camp we worked with 35 children and youth ages 6-15. Assisting us were several older youth and young adults many of whom were participants in English Camps in past years.
The campers were divided into three age groups: Littles, Middles and Bigguns. Each group rotated between English class, basketball and art in the mornings. In the afternoons I taught them about geocaching (see the Signal in Europe post for those photos) and the Czech youth and adults led them in activities based on the Narnia books.
Here are photos from our time in Slaný during the English/Basketball Camp.
