With Project deadlines approaching and SHADs scrambling, the last thing some of us thought we needed was a two night, three day vacation to Waskesiu, Saskatchewan.
We were only informed of the camping trip two nights before, but nevertheless, anticipation built quickly. Even the most Project-oriented people were excited to hear about the trip. What would we do there? Someone speculated we would design our own tent. Again!
After a three-hour bus ride, we arrived at an unassuming park in Waskesiu. Stepping off our buses and retrieving our luggage, we waited for our next instructions, but besides some meal and safety rules, there were none. We just lounged around near the beach, swimming or playing games, explored the Waskesiu downtown, then headed off to the campsite for s'mores and more.
I think we were all quite surprised by the amount of free time we got, especially if the next two days will be like this too. It was probably good to let us SHADs relax for a bit before the final busy days. I feel as if I’ve just got here, yet there’s only a week or so left. Let’s make it a great week!
