camp life

I am here in the Annapolis Basin doing some train-the-trainer work for the Nova Scotia Federation of Labour and the Office of the Worker Counsellor. I am having a great time. The Annapolis Basin Conference Centre used to be Canadian Forces Base Cornwallis. They did train peacekeepers here for a while - back when Canada used to be in the peacekeeping business - but the conference centre is a really good repurposing of the military institution and is providing some work in the community. The staff here are brilliant - so kind and accommodating.

Because we are staying in a former barracks and because the location feels a little remote (it is not really), working here is a little like being away at camp. I think. I have never been away to camp but this is what it looks like in movies.
