I also was Blessed to be able to give back as a Volunteer Leader for two years. (Got me back to camp a couple more times♥)
The years with Richie coming with me, we would go weekly, and had a blast. We loved Young Life. When the evening was over, Rich & I repeated our favorite tunes of the evening, rather loudly and off key, barreling down the road to home. We were terrible & we didn't care. We had songs in our heart & sang them out to the Lord. These songs were so different than the hymns we were use to in our more traditional churches. They were funny..creative.. and modern.
Richie & I also were Youth leaders together for summer camp in Colorado one year.

I know that Young Life has continued over the years. I had hoped that me daughters would actively become interested in this youth group. But the chapter available to them did not have the same atmosphere and charisma.
