Thirteen year old Melissa took part in CLDF Breakaway last year and had a great time! We asked Melissa to tell us a little about her experience and this is what she had to say:
“It was excellent! I loved every part of it. At first, I felt excited to be trying something new but also anxious since I didn’t know anybody that was going but as soon as I got there, I felt welcome and I knew I was going to love it. Everybody was so kind and understanding. I was great to talk to some people that actually understand me for once and know what it feels like. It made me feel not as alone as I used to and I still keep in contact with most of the people that I met that week.
“The best thing was how we had to survive in the wild overnight and collecting wood with friends to make a fire. At the end I didn’t want to leave, I felt like I could be myself in front of these people and they would like me for who I am, I’m so glad I went. If you are thinking of going then just go for it, you won’t regret it!”
