  9. Things to work on in the future • Working better together as facilitators, sometimes we were on different pages • Working on transitions from activities to other things • Debriefing- both as first time facilitators this aspect of the retreat was a little difficult. We used each other as resources however we need to learn more about debriefing before facilitating another retreat
  10. Reflection • As a first time facilitator I think overall the retreat went well. • We arrived late and had to rearrange the schedule but this showed that we could be flexible and were able to deal with change • Doing the actual retreat was easier than I expected especially since we had the schedule written up. • One thing I liked about this group is that were all willing to participate and were very fun. • They were patient and that was very helpful.
  11. Reflection continued • For next time I will know to write every detail even what I will be saying. • For the debrief I was prepared but not fully. Next time I will have everything for the debrief written out and will ask for help ahead of time if I have questions • I had a lot of fun and I am now very excited to lead other retreats!
