REFLECTIONS ON STRENGTH FOR THE JOURNEY
The space to be with myself and the lack of pressure to participate if I didn’t want
The wonderful people No judgments made
Freedom of thought without prejudice The openness, honesty, friendship and love
The variety of activities allowed people to get to know one another quickly
The love, caring and acceptance that was ever present in the staff
The unity, food, activities, crafts and swimming
I loved EVERYTHING!
