This is the Schneider-Farris Family's Blog. Keep up with what we are doing by logging into this site regularly! (The reason this site is called "Tragedy and Triumph" is that when I first founded this site, my husband, Dan, had been in a horrible accident, and he recovered. His recovery was a miracle!

Ramah of the Rockies 2011

The Schneider-Farris family will remember the summer of 2011 as the summer when all three kids went to Ramah Outdoor Adventure, but at different times.

Joel went to Session #1: June 21 -- July 4, 2011

Rebekah went to Session #2: July 6 -- August 1, 2011

Annabelle will go to Session #3: August 3 -- August 15, 2011

Some people are asking why the kids all went to the same camp at different times. Here's the answer:

Rebekah and Annabelle went last year. Rebekah pleaded with me for a month long camp experience, so this year, she went for a month. Annabelle made friends last year with campers that attended in August, so she wanted to return in August to link up again with those friends.

Joel didn't care when he went, so June seemed like a good time to go. He made friends, tried new foods, and got to do all sorts of fun things like kayaking, white-water rafting, hiking, mountain biking, and climbing.

Below are some photos of the great experience Joel had. I've also included some photos the camp has sent us of Rebekah's experience so far. I see she took part in mud-wrestling...

There's also a photo of Annabelle with some of the kids that was taken at a pre-camp family gathering in Denver.
