Hours before the official start of the “Relentless” Columbia Union Camporee at Summit Bechtel Reserve in Glen Jean, W.Va., a thunderstorm rolled through the campus, threatening the opening of the evening meeting. Chesapeake Conference’s SALT club from Randallstown, Md., was preparing to perform a liturgical dance for the evening program when the storm came through.
SALT staff member Kim Barrett watched two of her club’s tents fly 40 feet away. And, like most clubs, found their tents soaked all the way through.
