There are professional rodeos you might see on TV with rough-riding cowboys racing horses around barrels or trying to rope a fast racing calf. Then there are RFK rodeos. Instead of speed and danger, you find a group of campers trying to put socks on goats or attempting to “herd” a chicken across a designated finish line. But that’s what camp is all about, isn’t it?
We visited the Issaquah, Washington camp led by Lisette Murrell just as their wild and crazy rodeo began. Afterwards, campers enjoyed activity centers, and played the ever-popular Ga-Ga Ball. We drove the RV right in the middle of the basketball court so campers could sit on bleachers and watch our “show”.
Allan selected a counselor to take part in the amazing, “Cut the Counselor in Half!” trick. We found out later that counselor had been a camper many years ago and now was a counselor. What a testimony to the RFK impact on the lives of campers!
