Thank you for the financial aid that you have sent for my trip to Wrestling Camp in Oregon and the Pinnacle/Outward Bound Program with which I will be backpacking and canoeing in Washington. I am glad to inform you that I have been accepted to both these programs and am very excited to start.
Moreover, I have gone to a Ropes Course hosted by the Outward Bound Program to prepare myself for my trip in Washington. There I learned the importance of trusting strangers and following instructions. I am very grateful that I am going to be able to attend the wrestling camp. Thank you for the opportunity that you have helped me obtain.
