After our summer camp training weekend, we were sent a poem about the weekend from one of the volunteers.
Cullen Marshall is a first time volunteer and will be volunteering at the “Go eXtreme” camp at Coalbrookdale.
Here is his poem
“Two companions, seven hours, one KFC, and lil mix featuring Stormzy
Arriving at Edale, strait to the main room full of people
We came from all over in many vehicles
Robert aroused our excitement with twenty sixteens statistics
As the team explained the weekends logistics
Outdoor activities, friendly delivery
I see so much energy, opportunity, love and impact
Because let’s face it, that’s why we’re here!
Meeting greeting, making new friends
An early night in ma bunk bed follows a big breakfast
Yawns with grins, I didn’t have to wash up anything
Training while it’s raining,
All smiles no complaining, exploring our social fog
Some serious stuff too
Still silly sausages sizzle together nicely
As we soak up the juice of experience precisely
So, spritely we came together and formed this year’s volunteers
A powerful talk from Sarah, woops and cheers
Clink of the beers, maybe a few tears as we scaled inspiration and grew
Who knew me and you could fit in?
And what’s new is we’ve not even started really
So, here’s to us all, I hope you’ll gain
Feel the love and be loved
Because the world needs hero’s, you are mine, be the children’s
Young people we’ll cyas on camp
As for the YHA family, I give thanks
We can transform lives through travel adventure and discovery
From one soul to another
My sisters and brothers”
Thanks Cullen – can’t wait to hear what you think after camp!
