On a whim one year, (2009), I decided to join some friends on their yearly trip to Romania for "summer camp" as they called it, finding out later the official name is Atlantykron. I recalled their stories, and had seen some pictures and videos from years prior, and thought what a great opportunity this would be! My official role(s) were to be camp nurse, teach exercise and fitness, and work with our Thailand guests as part of the Cultural Awareness team. The students who enroll in the acadamy are exceptional- their thirst for knowledge unstoppable- I can honestly say they are the best students I have ever come across. Little did I know that I was the one who was going to learn more than what I had taught! I was humbled by their generosity and felt so welcomed in the camp community. (The classes offered to the participants are like nothing else- I tried to attend classes in my downtime.) The learning experience enhanced by the rustic and natural environment of the island... I miss it just writing about it. I'm still in contact with many of the participants, and it has been great to watch them grow and become successful in their lives and careers! I'm proud to say that I have been involved with and will continue to be involved with World Genesis Foundation!
