Hey Everyone,My name is Rufus. I'll be here at camp to help campers with their diabetes. My first visit was to the Giant Redwoods cabin during pre-camp and you will see me all over camp.

Today Rufus came with us on a hike to Singing Waters Brook. He seemed to enjoy it. Today he is in Giant Redwoods (Go Redwoods!) and we enjoyed his company. I'm not sure where he's going tomorrow, but I'm sure he'll have fun. Good luck with diabetes and God bless!

Rufus is still with the Redwoods (whoo hoo!). He was switched to me in flag line (lowering the flag). He did the limbo at the danceathon but decided to sit all the other dances out (must be shy). In closing circle he actually got to be in the middle. Me and Jimmy held his hands. He was a bit short but he'll grow (or shrink). We got back to the cabin and read some Harry Potter. Then he helped me open my mail. Then he fell asleep. He is still sleeping.
