Aidan Paynter talks to us about his time on camp and what it means to him.
This was one of the crazier things I have signed up for but it was a week like no other! In the past I have experienced holidays, football camps, school camps and more, but none came close to being as life changing and as great as this one.
"It gave me an opportunity to experience a more vast social life outside the quiet community of a small rural town"
It is called an enrichment program for a reason, because it helps young teenagers who are looking for something in their lives find it within themselves. I felt like I had found myself again.
But you also realise it's bigger than just what you find within yourself, but the people you're surrounded with, the good and the bad.
I also found the best in other people and when people can come together in a positive environment it brings the best out of everyone and that is the brightest part of this experience.
I am so grateful for all the people that put the time and effort into making this an unreal experience for myself and all the other young people & leaders because they are the real heroes of the week.
If you are not sure if you want to apply to go along to Borderline this year, I urge you to take a deep breath, think about your future and just leap... Leap at this opportunity, leap at your life changing, leap at some new mates and leap at a better future.
