SOME ARRIVED AT CAMP WITH WORRIES: "Am I crazy? Can I really do this?" On the first day of camp, many of those fears were set to rest as the group shared introductions in a shady breezeway at the tony Sea Pines Plantationís Welcome Center.

"This trip was just so much more fun than I ever imagined it could be. I loved the guides and I think I really did learn a lot and got to meet a lot of really neat people. I would recommend this trip to anyone. Good job guys and thanks a million."
~ Brian, age 48, Colorado
TWO HOURS LATER, all were at the Bristol Sports Arena - a beautiful outdoor hockey rink -- for their first lesson which covered gearing up, injury prevention, how to fall properly (really!) and the easiest way to get up from the ground.

The session also had everyone walking in their skates on the grass while quacking, in preparation for the learning the beginner stride - aptly named the "duck walk". The final hour at the rink was spent practicing the heel brake stance and stop, which Tammy , Janet and most others agreed was THE key skill they needed to enjoy skating.

At the end of the session, instructors Liz and Kris pointed out how much everyone had progressed already in such a short time. "Wow, youíre right!" marveled Mark. "I canít believe weíre all this comfortable in our skates already!"
