A Date At Shenandoah Bahá'í Summer School 173 B.E.

This summer my family had a unique opportunity to go to Shenandoah Bahá'í Summer School. This for us was unique in the way that my wife and I had never been to an organized, large scale Bahá'í event outside of the old Naw-Rúz gatherings in St. Louis and that is considerable since I have been a Bahá'í for 30 years.
When we arrived it was at the Massanetta Springs Camp and Conference Center in Harrisonburg VA. The Book store set into an out building became the immediate information center to the registration area for first timers, of which there were few who weren't children.
Our first night was slightly bumpy activities wise, most everyone seemed to know the routine and how things functioned so getting that information to every attendant must have appeared redundant to the volunteers and staff but was quickly rectified when an attendee made it known it was their first time.
Our room was nice, and the facility was older and well loved without any functional issues, it even sported a permanent labyrinth. No 
minotaurs found, just a nice meditative place to center.
