Waving goodbye to the last group of Outdoor Ed students of the fall was defiantly a bittersweet moment. It was a wonderful fall OE/E season and getting a chance to work with about seven different school groups was such a blessing. One thing that stuck out to me over the past month was the importance to putting my self in the camper's shoes, and realizing how excited and thrilled they are to be away at outdoor school. The fifteen hour days and four straight hours on the co-op course was not always my favorite thing to do, but once you see the wide-eyed face of an excited student, you quickly realize that you are not doing these things for your enjoyment; you are doing it for them.
