The reason I posted initially, is exactly that if this and only this is what Mike wanted to communicate, his post lacked the clarity needed to do so--as evidenced by responses above.
Acknowledging an "Aha moment" is fine, and good cheerleading. But doing so in the context of describing specific interesting things learned at camp (e.g. involving awareness, techniques, and mindset) would probably have been more useful and less yogurt disturbing.
