I have lived most of my life in the city and have had very little experience in the outdoors- so most of the camping skills we learned were completely new to me. I was initially worried about sleeping in a tent but in the end I loved being so close to nature!
I will always remember the smell of the damp cedar trees and the campfire. I felt well cared for and safe the entire time. Having the right gear, a positive attitude and a wonderful group of instructors made all the difference in the world. I can now look forward to (finally) being able to join my Canadian friends when they go summer camping.
