Leadership Activities

Lord Somers Camp 2011

On the 8th of January 2011 I left my life in Montmorency behind and gave up a week of my holidays to attend a Lord Somers Camp. I knew nothing at all about the camp and I didn’t even know one person out of the hundred that were attending the camp.

At first, I was a bit reluctant to go on this camp but I’m glad I did because it was a truly life changing experience.

At the end of that one week I had a hundred new friends and memories that I will never forget.

The camp tested me mentally and physically and taught me to never give up and always approach everything in life with a positive attitude.

Probably one of the greatest lessons it taught me was that with teamwork and encouragement everyone can achieve everything. I know that without the team spirit and the encouragement from the other people at camp, I would not have been able to achieve what I did.

In a very unique way, Lord Somers Camp helped me better develop my skills in leadership, team building and the tolerance and understanding of others.

As a result I am now highly motivated and full of confidence for the year to come.

The 8th of January to the 15th was the best week of my life, I’m glad I made the decision to give up a week of my holidays to attend this camp, it was truly life changing.
