    A great experience with ample all-round learning and very knowledgeable trainers. This definitely helped get closer to the spirit of GHAC, learn outdoor survival tips and understand the nitty-gritty of event organizing. Thanks to the other adventurers and event hosts for making it truly enjoyable!
