Meet Weston

Weston was our highest functioning camper and was 16 years old. He was a farm boy from Arkansas and he loved talking about his tractor-pulling competitions. He also loved the girls. He was ADHD but otherwise a normal kid. He would even help us out alot with some of the other campers. He would do this funny dance imitating Beavis and Butthead even to the point where he would pull his shirt up over his head exposing only his face just like Beavis. we had to take his cologne away from him because the first day he used about 3/4 of the bottle on his entire body including his hair. Talk about a nice smelling guy. But it was pretty strong and you could smell him coming from 20 feet away. It did permeate the cabin and was pretty strong but this may have been a blessing in disguise covering up other less wanted odors. Weston's parents just dropped him off and never even made it down to the cabin to meet the counselors. I think his homelife was less than perfect. I pray that the Lord will bless him and protect him and put a male role model and mentor into his life to help him along lifes journey. As we left the camp, he was the only camper in our cabin whose parents hadn't yet arrived to pick him up. He was not left alone though as the staff counselors were still there.
