Lasting Adventures 13 day Summer camp provided me with an opportunity to grow as an individual, and to fall in love with backpacking and Yosemite. Each one of my guides made my camp experience better in their own ways. Jill was really friendly, outgoing, and was always able to make us laugh. Hannah was really genuine, caring, and had the best riddles. Graham was there to answer any questions, was always singing or playing his guitar, and was really relatable. They brought our diverse group better together, focused on expanding our knowledge, were there in any way possible, and always encouraging us to reach our goals. If you bring whats recommended on the equipment list you should have no problem, and they will go over all your gear with you before you leave. Some days hiking were short and I wish we were able to go further. We did have a few longer, more challenging days but all were doable and very rewarding! Every day I made new memories and I can't wait to make more next summer! After 13 days I wasn't ready to leave, a friend I made from this camp and I are going to return together to backpack more of the park together this August! I'm very thankful I was able to attend and would recommend this camp to anyone!
