Off to Camp – A Summertime Poem for Ruby

Just a simple note I popped into one of Ruby’s care packages that she will receive at some point this week while away at camp for the first time.



On wings of love

You fly away

Off to camp

To run and play

Let God’s love guide you

While you are gone

Find him in nature

Under the sun


When you come home

We will be here

To give you a hug

And lend our ears

Tell us your stories

Your dreams

And woes

We’ll hold you tight

And never let go
