This is a short synopsis of the day to day flow of our camp.
Just like sailing when you pull up the rigging with the sails attached and set your course every day, there are always going to be variables that affect when you will arrive at your destination. The changing currents, winds and skills will effect your journey...but if you keep your heart and eyes open you will arrive...
...and you will have a story to tell...
E komo mai...Welcome friend
