7/10/15 - Camp Wawbeek day 6
This morning we headed out from camp Wawbeek. It's crazy to think that we were already there for six days. Between the work with the train and the activities with the campers it seems like the time just blew by. But as hard as it is to leave, it's nice getting to see how much we affected the camper's experience and how much they wanted to see us before we left.
We left right after breakfast before the campers did, and got to snag a few more pictures with the train before we left
Once we left camp it was a nice drive to Milwaukee where we got to have lunch sponsored by two amazing Pi Kapps. One was a founding father from the Theta Xi Chapter at Arizona State, and the other is a three time Build America Member and a recipient of the Pi Kapp 30 under 30 award. It was super cool getting to meet these amazing guys and hear about the struggles and opportunities they had in their chapters and their summer teams.
after that, we drove to the church that was going to be our lodging for the evening. From there we got to go down the road where we had a sponsored meal by our Milwaukee representative who helped train us back in Concord. It was cool seeing some familiar faces, and the food was awesome.
Later that night we got another fun surprise when a parent sponsor made a surprise visit to bring us all frozen custard, farm fresh strawberries, home-made shortbread, and Kringle or "Wisconsin Crack" as its called by locals. All of the food was incredible, and definitely put Wisconsin on my list of best states for food.
Tomorrow morning we head to Des Moines to meet up with the JoH North route, and I'm pretty excited. More details and pictures to come for sure.
