This trip, or should I say, experience, started way before the actual event itself. We began our journey one week prior to the starting date. We drove in an RV all the way from Florida. Moved one day at a time to Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC, Chicago, and then here. We did many activities on our way here. Most of which had to deal with enjoying nature. In fact, they all were. But it was truly inspiring for me. That’s why I say my Chosen experience began at that moment. Simply because, it was so inspiring to feel God so close to you in nature. Yeah, it was a little painful (only because I fell), but it was just a really fun experience. One that I wouldn’t trade for the world. I was excited to start the camporee itself of course, but I never thought I’d have this much fun. This very first day here at the Chosen Camporee was filled with nothing but mesmerizing experiences. From one hangar to the next, I went doing honors, activities, and pin hunting. But that’s what this is all about, an experience of our choosing, that we wouldn’t trade for anything else. And that’s the experience I’ve had today. A truly awe inspiring experience.
