Done in December

You’re never sure what you’re going to get in December at Camp Stevens! The end of 2013 didn’t bring inches upon inches of snow, but plenty more to keep us busy:

  • Thanksgiving Family Camp: Thanksgiving Family Camp this year brought sunshine, the second annual Turkey Cup (a soccer match to complement the annual football game), a Christmas tree lighting, new and returning families, and, of course, delicious food!

  • Farewell Pigs: The remaining four pigs that we had been raising since the summer were slaughtered in December, and made available to our wider community through Pig Shares. We’ve reflected on this before on the blog: Check out our thoughts, and please chime in with your own!
  • Kitchen Reboot: You might not even recognize the kitchen these days! Under the guidance of our new Executive Chef/Food Service Director, Neil, there’s walk-around room and a whole new organizational system. And, thanks to a fresh coat of paint, the kitchen’s never looked better!
  • Holiday Festivities: One of the best things (according to this holiday devotee) about living in community is having a built-in, nearby circle of wonderful people to celebrate the holidays with. And this Christmas season delivered, from a Tacky Sweater Party through our staff holiday potluck, we had plenty of opportunities to celebrate the season and enjoy one another’s company.
  • Los Angeles Diocesan Convention: Did we see you there? Executive Director Beth Bojarski addressed the gathering, we auctioned off one of our pig shares, and our new tote bags were a hit!

Now we’re back, and, having welcomed three new resident intern staff members, we’re looking forward to all that 2014 has in store. Thank you for your support throughout 2013, and we’re looking forward to seeing you up here in 2014!
