Sharing my Experiences

Cathedral RidgeAs I said in the ‘short’ bio, my name is Maya LaMunyon, and I am 16 years old. I wanted to share in more detail what my experience was at Cathedral Ridge. When I first got to Cathedral Ridge, my mom, and my best friend, also a participant, stayed up at the lodges that the counselors for the camp stayed at. My first thoughts were, oh this is going to be a benefit for me, I am going to be able to go to Haiti and Spain, haha, take that Evan! But, as the weeks progressed, I soon realized that this was not all just about me, it was about everyone. When the week came to an end, everyone was crying because they didn’t want to leave. I was crying as well. Being in this program, I feel like I have gotten stronger both physically, emotionally, and mentally. We had to overcome our different fears. Some were the same, others were different. And when someone was down, or sad, everyone in the group helped them to get through it, they never left anyone alone, or struggling by themselves. With the second year on the rise, I hope to spread my experiences with the world, and I hope to bring the leadership that I learned to Haiti, and to the Camino de Santiago trail. We will add a link to Facebook so that everyone will know when we post something new, and we will add a link to a website where you can give donations for our cause if you wish to.
