As part of the Ontario Nature Nature Guardians program, from Aug 14-16th, 2012 we held our very first camping trip. Youth participants were urban and newcomer youth, most who had never been camping before. Nineteen youth learned how to set up a tent, start a campfire, canoe, kayak, swim and how they can work together to take environmental action in their own communities. Not only did they connect to nature, they connected with each other. After only a few days, wonderful friendships were made.

Ben, from Malaysia, and Chhon, from Cambodia met only a day ago and were attached at the hip for the whole trip! Ben repeats Chhon's thank you in Chinese.

The experiences these kids had was so far from the norm for them, that they will last a lifetime.
