What camp did you go to? Where? When?
EPIC Experience in Colorado. July 15 – July 21.
What did you do while you were there?
Activities included horseback riding, kayaking, white water rafting, light hiking, and relaxed in the hot tub. While I was there, I also bonded with other like-minded individuals that shared similar experiences with cancer. Can’t forget the delicious home cooked meals that I ate.
What did you expect before going to camp?
I had never been on any kind of cancer retreats, so I didn’t expect anything before going to camp. They also didn’t give us much information on what to expect, so I was hesitant to go, but so glad that I did!
Did your impression of camp change after you attended? If so, what changed?
I don’t ever go camping so this experience definitely changed my impression of camp.
What was your favorite part?
I really enjoyed all the activities because those were all my first time.
What advice would you give to someone who is nervous to attend or unaware of camps like these?
Just go for it! It was such an awesome and very unique experience. Just being there and living in the moment helped me to think more positively about my cancer diagnosis.
