This family you see here? They’re the reason John and I met. Bless. They are the first husband and wife team I’d ever come across that actually chose to work together day in and day out, and I loved their whole… thing.
Together they direct a children’s camp in Southern Ontario which serves all types of kids and teens, from all walks of life and backgrounds. John and I both chose a path in our teenage years that brought us there – the way many teenagers do, trying to find a little independence in the world; helping kids navigate summer seemed like the right fit.
Their camp and work ethic taught us the importance of having a blast while busting your ass. (New slogan?) Fast forward thirteen years and we’re up three kids and back into camp life – from a totally different angle – and have loved seeing the way they run their family and work from a parenting perspective.
To say they’ve informed the way we want to keep cool under pressure and involve our kids in our work is an understatement. You come across many people who influence you in this life; these are some of those people for us. Richardsons, you rock.
