Today’s schoolwork was done outside!!! I love the moments that remind me of how grand our life is! People can’t believe that we live in such a small area(less than 200 sq ft!) but when you consider the outdoors as an extension to your home!! Opportunities are endless! 💯❤️
COLTS TESTIMONY 🌄
Over the next couple weeks we are going to share more about our COLTS program. Crowsnest Outdoor Leadership Training School. Let us know want to know something specific about the program. Today we are going to share Moriah’s story, she was a COLT this summer. Did you meet or hang out with her this summer?
For years I put my identity into what I did. During that time I just felt frustrated and out of place all the time, because everyone around me had “their thing” that they thrived at and worked towards. I didn’t understand why I just never felt like I fully belonged anywhere. I came into COLTS knowing very little, had a hard time allowing myself to fail and ignoring the toxic thoughts in my head. Over the four months, I was stretched beyond what I thought my limits were, when it comes to leadership and the outdoors. After finishing my 5th and final outtrip, I couldn’t help but praise God for shaping me into the leader He has created me to be. For I know that in my own strength I would never be where I am today. Knowing that I’m only just a vessel for Him to lead through. This is all for Him. Living my life for Him is “My thing”.
Here's some images from the 2018 Nepal CEDA trip, from September. Amazing trip, stunning places and beautiful people.

Last week was another action packed week here at YMCA Camp Campbell Science School. Our students went on hikes, collected samples from the river and helped us spread barley seeds to help manage the effects of soil erosion on our river in the wet conditions to come!
Outdoor Science School provides discovery and exploration experiences that are unique to the outdoor classroom experience. We believe this to be a vital part of the development of our young students.
With the generous support of our donors we are able to provide this experience to youth who may not have otherwise had the opportunity. We would love for you to consider joining our wonderful family of donors. Every contribution helps makes an impact. Learn more at the link in our bio!
