THE SMELLY KID

As a camp director you often get to take care of the tough jobs, like telling the one kid at camp who hasn't showered all week that he really stinks.

I tried to run it through my head how to tactfully tell him he was killing everyone with his stench. I thought I finally figured it out and strolled over next to him. While trying to hold my breath, so not to smell him, I said, "Wow, do you smell that? Someone's deodorant is definitely NOT working!"

I thought he got the hint until he said, "It's not mine, I'm not wearing any!"

    Oh the stories from Bible Camp. I just got back from Silver Maple Bible Camp. I've now completed about 35 weeks of camp over the last 29 years, and I'm as addicted as ever. Good work.

    Note: I posted some pics of camp on Family Fountain. I go to camp with Lance Morrisett. He has spoke very highly of his work with you.

    subtle hints seldom work on the male of the species….I'm just sayin….

    When I saw the title of your post, I was sure you were talking about my kid. :)

    Now that's funny, no matter who you are.

    I've never been a camp director, but I bet a fun and non self-esteem busting way to get the "smelly Kid" to bathe would be Jo start a food fight and be sure to get alot of sticky stuff on him. just a thought.

    ROFL…that has to be one of the most AWKWARD situations to handle. This would make for a great funny in the church bulletins. 😀

    Jesus Always! JJ

    When I was an older Girl Scout, the parents of a younger only child nervously asked me to watch out for Carolyn. After a day or two, the odor got worse. After asking she would tell me she WAS taking showers. Finally our GS Leader unwove the problem: she couldn't braid her 2 long pigtails and she'd never undone them! A good shampoo took care of that odor.

    LOL!
