    1st week: Went in to the place we meet before getting on coach to the outdoor centre. I was 2nd there on my team and was just waiting for everyone else.
    Everyone else came and I knew no one however we got talking within a couple of hours. The camping was rather great the tents were large and seeped up to 12 people.

    2nd week: The guys on my team were treated far better than guys on the other teams. The Program Leader let us stay up until 2am and let us cook at midnight! The Program Leader also let us use the speakers he had at night! We even had a sleep over one night in one of our 5 guys flats. Other teams were in bed at 11 pm but the Program Leader was in charge of our flat so let us stay up. I was on Team Ward doing Enterprise.

    3rd/4th week: The community work was great We got to paint up a resource centre and go on the streets of my local city and talk to the public about issues like Poverty.

    Drama: Lol, there was a lot in our team. the 5 guys including me had a Girl Friend each on the team. There was some edgy behaviour between some relationships but somehow it all held together and some are still going!
