The Best Years of My Life / by CISS CANADA

At the young age of 9 years old I had the opportunity to attend Swallowdale. Here I am - 2nd tallest with the hat on. Yep that's me! I attended Swallowdale for 13 years of my life and experienced being a camper, an LIT (Leader in Training), a counselor, a section head and a LIT Director. My years at Swallowdale I recall to be the best years of my life. I learnt so much about myself and who I am and can be as a person. I learnt about so many other cultures while interacting with students from there and I finally learnt to appreciate the little things in life. This place is magical in every way. It changes you, it makes you bond with people in a way you never thought you could, it teaches you to understand and be open-minded and to challenge yourself; it brings out the best in you. This place will forever be my 2nd home and I encourage campers to come an experience what an incredible program this is. Come and have some of your best years of your life be at Swallowdale Camp.
