Meet our June photo contest winner Congratulations to our June winner, Brian, for winning a free 2016 week of day camp! We’re so excited to share some of Brian’s Avid4 Adventure experiences from this summer!
What was Brian’s best camp memory? Brian enjoyed his time kayaking on Boulder Creek. He says that it was awesome because he loved the speed and the bumpy ride. Brian also had a great time with his new friends, and each day, they traded rocks that they found at the Boulder Reservoir.
Every camper grows when they experience new activities. So, we wondered how Brian grew from his Avid4 Adventure experience.
How did Brian grow from his experience at camp? Over the last several years, Avid4 Adventure camps provided an environment where Brian could try new adventures and get beyond his comfort zone. This year, Brian had the confidence to help out the new campers in his group. For example, he volunteered to be one of the first to get into Boulder Creek with his kayak when the new campers were apprehensive. Brian also assisted the staff by helping with the equipment and really stepped up to be a leader.
Brian and his family know outdoor adventures aren’t just for kids. It’s no secret we want entire families to get outside and enjoy nature, so we wondered what Brian and his family liked to do.
What outdoor adventures do you like to do as a family and why do you choose those? We love to go camping in the summer and to go on backcountry hut trips in the winter. Both activities allow time for us to unplug and spend quality time together. We like the added challenge of getting to the huts in unpredictable weather. And Brian loves the s’mores!
Avid4 Adventure staff teach what they live and love. So, we wondered if Brian had a dream outdoor adventure.
If Brian could have any outdoor adventure he wanted, what would it be and why? Brian would love to go hiking near an active volcano in a tropical rain forest.
(Hmmm . . . wonder if Brian knows that Avid4 Adventure staff have their own opportunity to enter a contest to win a trip to their ideal adventure vacation? Brian can read all about this year’s winner in an upcoming post.)
Way to make memories, Brian! Congratulations again, and we look forward to hearing about your adventures in 2016!
