once in a lifetime experience
For those who love adventure CELP is a great program for you. From hiking to canoeing and skiing to snowshoeing CELP was amazing. The camping trips to Halliburton and Cyprus were extraordinary. There were breathtaking sites and thrilling activities, never a dull moment. The day trips to places like Adventure guides and Waterloo Children’s Water Festival are also very fun. CELP offers many volunteer opportunities as well such as the Orangeville Maple Syrup Festival and Tree planting which were definitely some of the most fun volunteer work I have ever done. The skills and experience I have gained from CELP has helped me to get into the program of my choice and the University of my choice also it has helped me get various scholarships. CELP is a once in a lifetime experience in which I made so many amazing memories that I will never forget; it is definitely worth the time to fill out an application, you will not regret being part of the program.
memories will last forever
CELP is an experience like no other–a good word to describe it is priceless. CELP has made me a stronger student, before CELP I did not study as much or complete my homework very often. CELP guided me to become a better more dedicated student, which is the student I am today. I am an honor roll student who puts forth his best effort in every task. Moreover, I have made some of the best friends in CELP while keeping my old ones too. The experience may be over for me, but the memories will last forever and I strongly believe that every student should at least have an opportunity to be a part of the program.
so many positive impacts
CELP has made so many positive impacts on my life in so many different ways. I believe one of the most important things I learned was to be accepting, not only of others, but of myself too. I learned to accept my peers and all their flaws and virtues which is something you can never teach in any regular classroom. Celp also taught me to accept myself. I realized this the one day when I had a major wipe out cross country skiing. I remember Mr. Hendrick saying to me that it was the nicest fall he had seen all day. That comment made me laugh and feel good about it, after that I never felt embarrassed when I fell or failed at something because I learned not to compare myself to others.
highlight of my education
CELP has been the highlight of my education thus far as well as being an extremely invaluable experience that has, and will continue to benefit me majorly in everyday life. Without CELP I never would have been presented with so many opportunities to express myself. I have become the person i have always wanted to be through CELP, and that has made a huge difference in my life. I whole heartily feel CELP is one of the most worthwhile, significant programs to be offered and without it, my life today would in no way be the same.
helped me gain confidence
Before CELP I was very shy and I did not like talking in big groups of people, but CELP helped me to get out of my shell and gain confidence. Now I am not nervous about talking to new people and a lot less nervous when I am presenting something in front of a class. Through CELP I made memories that will last a life time. CELP by far was the highlight of high school. I would recommend it to anybody.
