How I Spent My Summer Vacation (A Retrospective)

It remains to be seen whether or not a retrospective is viable a mere three months later.  Nevertheless, this gives your reporter, the protagonist, the opportunity to be on the other side of the camera – for these are all through the eyes and camera of our son-in-law, Danny Gaither.  Obviously, this will be a bit much for other than family and fellow campers.  But it is my site, and this seems to be the best way to disseminate the information.  Therefore, without further adieu, we once again bring you Indiana University’s Camp Brosius, on the shores of Elkhart Lake in Wisconsin, during the first week of August 2011.
