Afternoons in Camp

Each day students and adults return to camp around 4 pm and have a chance to hang out for a while before dinner. Here in pictures is what that time is often like.

Getting off the bus from long day of building

The water jugs and lunch tubs need to be returned to La Cocina to be cleaned for the next day

Tired after working hard but still with a great attitude.

The long line of water and Gatorade jugs we use every day. Each team gets 5 gal of water and 5 gal of Gatorade.

Sun showers are often the next step to get the days dust and sweat off.

Men and women each have their own shower facilities

Some of the boys getting clean!

After a shower many grab a snack. Each day Amor brings in folks to do street tacos and churros that can be purchased. Delicious!

The line for tacos can get long but is worth the wait.

Enjoying some time with friends new and old in the shade

Adults take it up a notch every afternoon by offering hors d’oeuvres and spending some time enjoying each other’s company.

Card games or tossing around a football are great ways to hang out together.
