This year's Kid's camp (for the kids in our various projects) was possibly even better than last year's. We only had a team of 6 who came to help from Finland (last year it was 26!), but we had a LOT more local volunteers, and many more children (almost 60), so we ended up at around 80 people again. The theme of this year's camp was "Ti si Dragocjen" ("You are precious") and each child (and adult!) was made to feel that way throughout the camp!
The camp was held once again in the lovely location of Bardaca lake about an hour from Banja Luka, although we were so busy we didn't really have a lot of time to enjoy the scenery ;-)
Camp would not be the same without our camp mascot, the Kaaikenen's dog "Pyry" (the y is like a oo sound): Here he is with Emina, one of the volunteer moms:
*English translation of the song: "We came to camp, so we could hang out together, and learn a lot from lovely people. It is fun here while we play, singing good songs glorifying God - because He is with us wherever we may be, and He thinks that we are all precious!!"
