These stories are from students from one of our backpacking trips this year. As the title implies these are their own words. I hope you enjoy reading of the impact of each of these students’ wilderness experience.
My Camptown experience was pretty great and memorable. A fourth of the time I was regretful because of the pain, but I kept pushing myself because I know it was going to get better. It was hard, but I wouldn’t take it back even if I could. I had a lot of fun and made some of the best memories of my life.
I thought that the first day was hard because we were not used to the bag. The second day was the hardest because we had to do 10 miles so it was really physically challenging. Also, I fell a lot. The last day of hiking it was easy because all we had to do was go up two mountain which was easy. The rafting was cool too! Overall It was a great experience.
I had an amazing experience for this being by last year. I appreciate my guides and not giving up on me. I had a few challenges, but I had someone behind/front to help me fight through. This trip guided me to keep fighting because the work and effort you put in will determine your outcome.
At first, I thought this trip was gong to be boring. My thoughts instantly changed. We did so many rare things that not many kids at other schools do. I just think this camping experience helped me better myself as a student and most of all a leader.
