When I was in high school, we were able to participate in a senior class retreat called Kairos. It was a four-day retreat that culminated in the students’ return to their families amidst applause and newfound self-awareness.

Okay, so it wasn’t exactly a haunted mansion, but I did take some of my favorite young photographers to an abandoned asylum about a year ago. It was spooky and creepy and FABULOUS!
