Strathcona 2014: A Gallery of Memories

“That was the first time I ever steered a canoe and I did not know if it was going to be easy or difficult, so I took a chance and tried it.” – Kylie D.

“I never thought that I would enjoy a vegetarian meal as much as I did.“ – Braden B.

“I learned to never be harmful or disrespectful to nature because it’s part of the air you breathe and water you drink.” – Sanjeev J.

“Strathcona is the time where you can go crazy, it’s a place where people discover themselves and can let go of all the stress.” – Sophie S.

“Instead of liking a picture of the sun setting on Instagram I could actually see it with my own eyes!” – Ramneek K.

“During the trip I didn’t have my phone or IPod with me and I learned that you can have so much fun without your electronics.” – Eilat M.

“I appreciate nature and all living things a great deal more and I try not to waste as much as I used to.” – Amaan M.

“Three girls asked me to dance, two grade nines and one grade 12.  I was nervous to slow dance with them but in the end, these dances were the highlight of my trip to Strathcona.” – Marcus A.

“No matter what comes ahead, no matter how hard it may seem, if you push yourself, remain positive and never give up, you can do anything you set your mind to.” – Madison N.

“At home I can encourage my sister and help her become more confident because at Strathcona when people encouraged me I became confident not embarrassed.” – James B.
