Camp Quaker Haven, Arkansas City, Kansas

Last Tuesday at around 7am I left from the airport in a Boeing 717 for Atlanta. Upon arrival I switched flights and took off for the Wichita Airport . Sarah picked me up and we went to Spangles, a fifties style fast food restaurant, and enjoyed delicious burgers there. Then we drove to Camp Quaker Haven where Adam was the counselor of Cabin 3, my cabin. I spent four days there and enjoyed playing many fun games, worshiping in the chapel, and making new friends. CQH was a great place. It has a beautiful view of the Arkansas River. My cabin, the smallest there with only six people, came in second overall, in the boy's division, in the camp games. I hope to return next year as I have many wonderful memories of CQH.
The Cabin.

Bunk beds, where we slept for very limited times, usually getting only seven hours of sleep -- I know this may sound like a lot, but we were kept extremely busy during the other 17 hours.

The Key Chapel.

We were involved in a picture scavenger hunt, this being our most successful one.
