There are 60 steps from my room at camp to the attic where my classroom is. On the last day of class I went up those steps at least a dozen times. That's 720 steps without counting trips down the stairs or all the trips I made just to the second floor. Sixty steps to drop off camera and water bottle. Sixty steps to come back up with a towel for feet washing. Sixty more to bring up the bucket of water. Another trip to get the lesson from my room. And another to get a spoon for food day. There was a trip for taking the food up to the classroom. One to get paper towels. Then later trips to put away sports equipment. After two weeks of hiking every morning I could feel each step in my legs. Exhausting, but so worth it. Food day is one of the best days of camp. It is great to watch the expressions of the campers and counselors as they try new foods, especially anything slightly spicy. Hot Tamales usually get the best reaction.
The Bible lesson for the day was Jesus washing his disciples' feet. To help reinforce this we washed the feet of our students. None of the boys would do it, but most of the girls allowed us to wash their feet.
