In addition to the high ropes course, village visit, and rafting that I’ve mentioned over the past few days, we participated in a huge variety of activities. It was neat to see the students grow and discover in so many different ways, and neat to hear the all-encompassing answers when I asked what there favorite part was.
One of our main activities was sound exploration, in which the kids used recycled goods to make music. It was really a fascinating program, and kept the students’ attention for almost three hours!
We also went hiking and rappelling, which was a great challenge for many of the participants! I was really proud of my kids though – every student did it!
All in all, it was a great time of community and getting away from the big city and into nature!
