I am leading a camp for teens and adults with disabilities this summer. It has been so much fun! Our weekly theme for the week is self-control. I thought no big deal, I got this. We start the week watching a short video and then talking about what it means. After that we make a poster and cut out examples from magazines. Now I know what self-control means but boy it was hard to think of examples or find pictures of them in magazines. As we were doing this activity with 3 campers, one wasn’t talking and just sitting there, one was falling asleep coming off of a weekend, and the other was ready to participate fully. I started to feel my heart beat faster, my teeth clench, and my mind racing with different ideas. As I calmly found some ideas for them to think about I realized I couldn’t control all of these campers attitudes and feelings first thing on a summer camp Monday morning.
