4H Camp Album Photos

Well, hello! The night before last I finally finished scrapbooking an album for Terry. I made an entire album (20 pages) for when he went to 4H Camp with his class earlier in the year. I was pleased with the end result. I made it mainly for Terry to use as a tool to show the parents during Open House how much fun their children will have at camp – so they need to help with fundraising so all the kids can go. Because I think about 8-10 of the kids last year couldn’t afford to go and had to stay behind.

So, without further ado, here are photos of the album. Pardon any bluriness and or crappy photos…I took the photos quickly and they were still in their plastic sleeves so it hindered some of the photos:

Here is the inside. I had all the kids from his class last year “autograph” the inside of the album, like a yearbook. I thought it was a nice touch.

In between all of the outside activites, the kids also took classes on Snakes and Bugs. It was kind of gross, but the kids loved it.

Here are some fun photos of the teachers goofing around, and the initiation all the 1st year teachers had to do by singing with their mouths full of marshmellows.

I thought the whole scrapbook came out great. I was very proud of it. Tonight is Terry’s Open House at school so I hope all the parents like it.
