My name is Gabriela.I came to the camp because my brother came last year. I got chosen to com, He told me wonderful things about this camp. My teachers back at school encouraged me to come, they said it would be a great opportunity for me. I consider my self outgoing, respectful for my self and others. I like to meet new people.
Day one. meeting new people, starting from zero with them. Learning new things about others. socializing, bonding. I like to meet new people and it's interesting to meet new people.
Day two at OMLI.
Today we did the challenge course. It was thrill at the beginning but then it was fun. I started to enjoy it and have a good time. I learn to work as a team and get along with more people get to know them better. I volunteered to lead my group ant they could not talk i hag to guide them and tell them what to do and what positions to be in. it was a good experience. We also had to have support by two other people blind folded. You need team work for them to tell go where to step and walk so you wont fall. We also went bowling it was so much fun. we had the black lights and we were just glowing!

On day three we had to give a speech, about a movie called; Constancia's choice. We did some group activities. As we work more and more my group, we are learning how to work together and communicate. Today i learned two new games and they were fun. We had lessons and did a time line in our group and shared it. Besides in our time line we shared what we want to do when we grow up and our goals.

On day four we went to the beach. I had a good time I have 11 years living in the coast, but on Wednesday i went in the beach all the way in something i have only done once in 11 years! it was really fun. we also dissected a salmon. we ripped it all up. it was fun a life time experience for me i hope to come next year if i can or come back as a volunteer some day! I'm still not ready to go home yet in sad to leave because the day is getting closer I wish we could stay longer. I love the camp and i learned people think I am a great leader.
