Just bumped into one of your groups at DFW on their way home from an awesome and empowering trip. Thanks for all you do to get kids into the woods!
We ran into this group while hiking in the The Forest Service - Flathead National Forest yesterday. They were enthusiastic, polite, and charming. We want to wish them and The Woods Project all the best.

Donner group 3’s backcountry experience is coming to a close. During their trip, sudents persevered along many miles of trails, dipped their toes in icy lakes, prepared meals, purified water, saw inspirational views, and formed life-long bonds with their fellow backpackers.

TWP summer trips are full of big moments- like climbing a mountain, overcoming a fear, or trying something totally new. But, Donner group D3B reminds us that it’s also made up of a lot of small moments- just being in the moment, breathing the fresh air and soaking up the sun, making new friends, and of course bonding over chores!

Donner group 2 is on their way back to Houston today. We have learned so much about ourselves, our strengths, and what is possible when we work together. Thanks for an exciting week in the front country. Thank you TWP volunteers for guiding these incredible students through the backcountry.

The efforts of our guide Luigi and our Head backpack Leader Brad are paying off! Donner 3A continues to develop into a stronger, more cohesive group/team/family. Lots of sharing and bonding occurred on our challenge hike.
