I honestly can’t think of any other experience Alexis has had that made such a difference. She gained so much confidence, such love for the outdoors, and valuable friendships from this experience. I believe she will apply the gifts she has been given to become a more active leader.
What Parents say about American Explorers
The staff showed nothing but professionalism, enthusiasm and compassion all mixed in with fun and positive energy. They are truly role models and mentors, and I think Molly will carry that with her as she becomes a young adult and is in a position of mentoring and positively impacting young people herself.
What a wonderful program for our teenagers! Every time Alejandra participates in these events, she expresses how much she enjoys being a part of American Explorers…thank you for teaching, guiding, encouraging and showing our daughter how to become a great leader!
Strangely, I feel this sense of comfort about her absence. I believe it comes from knowing how fortunate we are for this experience and the life-long impact it will have on both of our lives.
Deondre came home rejuvenated and excited to tell me about his twenty-day expedition. He spoke of the kindness and generosity of the staff and others he met in Montana. He said, though he missed us, he felt at home because of the safe and loving environment you all provided.
