wow wooohhooo how exciting. Well its all a bit confusin haha. i woz sposed to fly on 3rd of june but college informed me i cant go then because ill fail my course! so i contacted them and said that i cant go until 16th june, and they said i might not be able to go to camp courageous but they will see. when i checked today it has a new flight of 16th june and on my placement letter it still has camp courageous so im guessing they still want me and im still going. will have 2 confirm that though! im a chatterbox haha. Erm yeh i think it looks really nice ypuve got a good age range so activities and things will be different and lots of things to do there. i emailed the camp and accepted and then after i got congratulations youve been placed on my log in on camp america direct, and then i got offered a flight and accepted it. u shuld come camp courageous it looks wicked and we will know eachother lol. so have u got any experience with special needs? ive got a fair bit i am a care support worker for children and adults with special needs, part time and have worked in special needs schools and things. nehow ive wrote an essay!!! write bk luv sam xx

Lookin at the pics for camp courageous tho and it doesn't look like theres gona be loads of staff like some of the other camps so that might be why were the only two on here?
