“Elizabeth had a blast! She has repeatedly asked about going back next summer. It was an incredible experience for her; from traveling solo, being away from family for an extended time, developing friendships with other wonderful teens, and participating in new and exciting activities. All that, and Hawaii too! I would love for her to join you again.” Parents of Elizabeth H., San Diego, CA
