The inaugural year for the high school residential bridge camp went off without a hitch this year! It was held at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, MO from July 5-11. We all stayed in the dorms, ate in the student cafeteria, and had classes and tournaments in the Student Union.

Lots of learning and lots of fun! We took a tour of the campus on Tuesday and the outdoor volleyball and basketball courts close to our dorm became an immediate hit among our 11 students. Tuesday night we all went bowling at Belt Bowl on dollar night. So we each got a snack and drink and 2 lines of bowling, relatively inexpensively. The post camp survey proved this was a hit with everyone! Wednesday afternoon we had a docent led tour of the Walter Cronkite Memorial, right there on campus. Thursday night was our talent show and what turned into a joke telling night as well. Friday night we went to the student production of "The Fantasticks". Besides the organized activities, the kids took full advantage of free time on the aforementioned courts, and there was also lots of movie watching, popcorn eating, and game playing going on during free time as well. And before we knew it, it was Saturday morning and everyone was going home! Look below for some pictures from our week.

Of course throughout the week there were bridge lessons for four and a half hours per day and a two hour bridge tournament each night. Click here to see most of the results

Contact Kathy if you are interested in next year's camp - we will be holding it at the same location the week of June 12-18. Camper apps for 2016 are here.

I recently returned from the residential week long youth bridge camp in Carlinville, IL. This was my third year as a teacher but it was especially fun this year as my son Paul also went as a camp counselor. I hope to do it again next year. Next year's camp will be June 28 to July 3.
