What Campers Say

There are many lessons to learn in the great outdoors. Here are just some of the profound lessons our campers shared with us.
  • There isn’t much to do when you are hiking for days in the mountains, except think about who you are and what your goals are. I got really scared when I was hiking, because I realized that I didn’t have any goals. I spent a long time thinking about it during those hikes and now I have some great goals for my life. This trip was the best thing that ever happened to me in my entire life, and you have to remember that I’m 17 so I’ve been around for awhile.
