A few weeks ago my mom told she had entered me into a competition called “Born to be brave” being run by Kingswood camps.
I was really excited just be entered so when I won I was shocked.
After looking on the website at all the amazing camps Kingswood offer I decided to attend Colomendy on a multi skills week.
Arriving at Colomendy I was nervous but the staff made me feel at ease straight away. We were shown quickly our rooms which were clean and we actually had cleaners through the week. Wish I could have brought them home they would stop my mom nagging at me about my bedroom.
Once all campers arrived we had a big meeting about the rules of camp and how to keep ourselves safe. Then we went off on a scavenger hunt.
This was the start of an action packed week where I conquered many of my fears.
I thought I was scared of heights until I found myself on the giant zip wire and on the abseiling tower.
I knew I was scared of tight places but thanks to the support of the staff I conquered my fears and when underground caving.
My favourite activity has to be the raft building as I had so much fun even though I got very wet.
I highly recommend Kingswood camps to anyone, I had so much fun and barely used my mobile phone and as you know for a 14 year old that’s pretty amazing.
Kingswood challenges you in so many ways and I am so grateful for the opportunity.
My time at Kingswood camp Colmendy will stay with me forever.
I have had some incredible experiences and made some wonderful new friends.
In fact I loved it so much that I really want to return next year.
Thank you Kingswood camps
