My defining moment was in the summer of 2009. That was the summer that I spent my first week away from home at Muskoka Woods summer camp. Before going I was terrified to be away from home in a cabin full of people I didn’t know, but I was also equally excited. It took no time for the whole cabin to become extremely close and by the end of the week I had realized how amazing the experience had been. Since that summer I have gone back 5 times increasing the duration of my stay to two weeks. Spending time at camp has taught me many valuable life skills such as; Organization, Independence, increased social skills and ultimately has fueled my desire to travel and experience the world. Without these experiences I would have never come across the opportunity to travel for three months to destinations I had never imagined going to. Starting next September I will be going to Hong Kong, Beijing, North and South Vietnam, Cambodia, Bangkok, Australia and Fiji and then returning home mid December. I already know that this trip will be life altering and will have a strong impact on the person I become and where I am headed in the future. Therefore without my time spent at summer camp I would have never been presented with this opportunity. Which in my opinion is the opportunity of a life time.
