Summer Camp Ardèche, France

A Final Farewell

It’s our last night of camp

Wow. What an excellent journey. It’s hard to imagine that just two weeks ago, we were mostly complete strangers and now it feels like we’ve all been life long pals. We’ve laughed, cried, played, persevered, excelled, and grown together and we will all leave this place with life long friends. We’ve come from all over the world which means we’ve brought vastly different methods, lifestyles, beliefs and thought processes together in familial celebration, but more importantly, it means that wherever we go in the world, the odds are high that we’ll have a close friend somewhere nearby. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster ranging from deep exhaustion to towering personal triumph, and it is so invigorating to see how each one of us will walk away from here with something invaluable. Perhaps a bit more patience, or maybe its a little more courage, or understanding. Not one of us will leave this place empty handed.

Yes, it’s our final day. After breakfast we geared up and went for a hike up to a viewpoint of the river until lunch. After lunch, we took some time to pack up our things and then went straight into our Wet and Wild field party! After free time, we were treated to an incredible Gala Dinner where all of the counsellors acted as waiters and served our campers dinner. In the evening, we had our talent show, we watched our end of session video, and then we had a surprise ice-cream party. And now, everyone is in bed, having their final late night gossip circles before they leave for home bright and early tomorrow morning.
And so, for the final time,

Goodnight and enjoy the photos from today and last night’s dance.
