Vocation Experience

“If I had a flower for every time you made me smile and laugh I’d have a garden to walk in forever.”

This quote makes me reflect on the vocational jobs we complete every week with our team. If I truly had a flower for each time our HKC workers enthusiastically asked what they can do next, I would have OVER a million gardens that I would ask them to help me water!

From painting picnic tables and washing golf carts to planting and landscaping, our campers were very busy this week! We actually went OVER our work time to make sure we accomplished the tasks! Each of the workers this week expressed enthusiasm and pride with the jobs they completed.

Once again this was a HOT week, but look what we ACCOMPLISHED!


One cart at a time

We worked hard to keep cool with our weekly golf cart wash! We always rotate experiences

where each group of workers has an opportunity to try a variety of tasks.

Many camp directors passed by asking if they could bring their carts down for us to wash!


Keep the carts coming!

When washing the golf carts, each camper

is given a different job to do. One worker washes and

the other worker dries!

We also had some fun working on completing our beautification project at the front of the Administration Building by adding our gorgeous yellow and red flowers! We learned how to use different gardening tools and materials for landscaping. HKC workers also used individual mini shovels to delicately re-plant flowers in the gardens and new flower pots.


Flowers are ready!
