Chapter 1: The arrival of many from affar
(by keagan, added on 29 July 2009 08:11 PM)


All names are changed in this story for the dignity of people in it. Based on true events from a true story.

12 students from across Canada arrived in Terminal three at Pearson Airport on a cool July afternoon to participate in a 2 week summer program. The 12 students did not know each other nor did they know what they would gain from their experiences. Megan met everyone as they strode of their planes, some flew for 5 hours and some took a car ride to meet at the airport.

We waited at the airport for a couple hours for everyone to arrive. The first person I met was dressed like he was ready for a wedding. There were funny people, there were quirky people, and there were kind people but we all had one thing in common, our blindness.

I myself use a cane but, some students came without canes because they didnít require that sort of assistance and some came with guide dogs. Tammy and her guide dog Magnus were the only team there for the two weeks. Tammy had a sweet and loving dog who was very well behaved and a hard worker.

As soon as everyone arrived and we ate dinner we piled ourselves and our luggage onto a school bus. It was a 3 hour drive to Lake Joseph and we were all very eager to learn more about each other and get started on our leadership and team activities. None of us students knew what the staff had in store for us.

We were woken promptly at 8:00 am the next morning. This offended Jim,as well as some of the others, mainly because they had been told they would be woken at 7:00.We all had to hurry and have showers and rush to breakfast. We ate breakfast then returned to the porch where our camp staff had some interesting games for us to play. We first accomplished a madlib, the first of many, (and some of us learned a thing or two about grammatical points), and we included what would become one of our standard jokes "oompaloompas" which apparently are a plural noun. During the afternoon, wemet a blind sports expert who is rollerskating across Canada in support of blind hockey. Everyone admired his determination.
