“To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.” - Kofi Annan
This year, the camp theme is “Choices”. Sometimes as youth it is easy to think that we have little power over what we do or where we are heading in life. Our goal this year at camp is to challenge this and to help you realize that your life is full of choices. Where are you at now? What choices have you made to get you here – good or bad? What choices do you wish you had? What resources do you have available to you? These are all questions we will explore together at camp.
