“THANK YOU for an amazing trip!  Our son had a fantastic time.  He came home with many stories, learned so much about our nation’s history, made several new friends and enjoyed a first time experience of days away from home without family.  Thank you so much for providing this opportunity.  The trip was incredibly well run, organized, & planned. I also appreciate all the chaperones who volunteered their time to make this happen.”
