“I liked the school lessons the best. The teachers were very nice and helpfull as well. Meeting and making new friends was one of my favourite things at the camp, and learning about the different cultures of the different countries. But my absolute favourite was when we went hiking… or let me rather say I loved everything about the summer high school.”
