Summer 2017 - Week 6

Posted by Keriann Kaercher on 17 August 2017 | Comments

July 29th through August 5th marks what is known as the Week Six Social!  This is a FUN week!  Lots of kids, lots of games, and lots of cocktail parties!  (There is usually one scheduled for each night of the week).  

The week started off a little chilly, but warmed up as the days went on.  Many people were out on the lake doing a lot of water sports through out the days.  Water skiing, tubing, standup paddleboarding, and sunbathing...just to name a few.  

We had two new families join us this week, both of which had kids of various ages.  It warms my heart to watch how everyone took these new families in and made them feel like part of The Waldheim tribe.  One of these "newbies" had their 15 year old son join them.  He had learned that there was no wifi or cell service here a few days prior to their arrival.  He was, to put it lightly, upset.  After the first 24 hours here, he had totally forgotten about his phone and was out fishing, hiking, and running about with the other gang of boys.  I got a chance to talk with the parents at the end of the week and was so ecstatic to hear that this has been "the best family vacation they have ever had"!!  

WOW!!  How amazing is that!  I can't believe we get to do this for others.  Being able to have a place that allows for families to come together with each other and have the trust and comfort to give their children freedom to be children.  

Do you have a story like this?  We'd love to hear it!
