- I jumped off a waterfall, rappelled, took tours through caves, learned at Teton Science School, cried with each other around the campfire, and ate lots of ice cream.
- Getting to know everyone here I feel like I have made more than just friends but a family.
- From the dense wildlife to the thin mountain air, the mountains could help anyone, no matter how lost to find themselves. I found out more about myself in the two weeks there than in my whole life combined.
- So now I have my souvenirs, my memories from my physical journey. What about my personal one? Very simply, I have changed. I am not the person I was before this experience. This new Faith is more observant, and not so quick to answer. I have learned wonders are hidden everywhere, and I have learned to look and think carefully about both the question and my answer.
- One of the most beautiful things that I saw was at the top of Harney Peak. Once we got to the top the sun was starting to set and we could see for hundreds of miles.
- We learned about how water is everything and the four kinds of plant groups that depend on water and how they have adapted. We learned that geology determines biology and how the Tetons were formed.
- As I settle back into ordinary life and start high school, I need to keep an open mind to everything I learn and experience.... Even though I will miss Teton 2011 more than I can imagine, I know that all things must come to an end. My prayer is that we will always be friends and family, that I will never forget this trip....
- …wisdom appears in short supply when trying to address key inter-related challenges of our time such as; runaway climate change, the loss of biodiversity, the depletion of natural resources, the ongoing homogenization of culture, and rising inequity. Living in such times has implications for education and learning.
- I regard it as the foremost task of education to ensure the survival of these qualities: an enterprising curiosity, an undefeatable spirit, tenacity in pursuit, readiness of sensible self-denial, and above all compassion.
- I can hike for 7 hours and 15 minutes surviving on a sandwich, fritos, and Jolly Ranchers. But most importantly, I can trust every single person in this group. I think that has affected me the most because when I am away from my family it is really great to know that I have another family right here with me.
- Summer Journeys 2012 stripped me down to the studs. It was the most rewarding experience of my life. I wouldn’t trade my new friends and the lessons learned for the wealth of all the nations.
- God gave me such an amazing opportunity and words cannot describe how glad I am I took it. He gave me new eyes to see. He also built a halo around our group, and I pray it won’t fade away.
