It’s so hard to believe that the program is almost over. It seems like just yesterday that I set foot on foreign soil for the first time. I can truly say that I’ve enjoyed every aspect of this experience. While in Durham, I worked for Team Durham. Team Durham is the equivalent of American D1 athletics. The organization has three components: perform, community, and participate. During my time, Jessica and I have spent most of our time working with the community but in two radically different ways. The first week and a half we did various sporting activities with groups of vulnerable adults (the mentally ill, recovering alcoholics, etc). I’m definitely no athlete so the week was full of new experiences. I played my first game of organized football; I also tried my hand at curling. These last two weeks, Jessica and I have been coaching at the Team Durham Holiday Camp, a summer camp for kids ages 4-11. We’ve led various activities like volleyball, capture the flag, dodgeball, and treasure hunts.
