It also really helped mature her; she learned far more about how to be responsible for herself, live independently, take far less for granted, and enjoy life. It also of course really fostered her love of the outdoors--she now loves camping, canoeing, hiking and kayaking! It was a really wonderful experience, and the sense of mentorship and accessibility of the teachers and the administration really infused the whole atmosphere with a sense of care, and opened a doorway to how she can make a difference with this life.
