On August 22nd and 23rd, Silver Lining Mentoring youth, mentors and staff got together on Cape Cod for a weekend of camping. The annual camping trip was an energizing weekend in which youth, mentors and staff came together to conquer unfamiliar situations and challenges. As always at Silver Lining Mentoring, all participants challenge themselves by choice. This means that all youth define their own success. For some, success was facing a fear of swimming, while for others it was standing on the dock and cheering on fellow campers.
One young person who attended the camping trip for the first time said, “I will definitely be back. There will always be someone to spot you and catch you if you fall.”
