Are you ready?
e are looking for students who would like to learn about their community from several perspectives - environmental, social, economic - and then apply these principles of place during travel and expedition. A true experiential education. What makes communities work? What are the healthiest elements of our home community and what elements are struggling? And why? What can I do about it? How are the principles which form communities present in other places? How can experiencing another place challenge, invigorate, and inspire me? How can a Summer's Journey enable me to come home and know the place for the first time?
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....
