Life Changing Experiences

Goodbye, Northwestern Odyssey! We’ll miss you!

A final hello from sunny Park City, Utah!

Trip Members have had an excellent two days exploring the famous town.  We headed to the Alpine Coaster on the ski hills outside of the downtown area – the group enjoyed an exhilarating ride and a fun round of mini-golf. We then got lunch on Main Street before traveling back to the hotel to swim and enjoy each other’s company.

On our last night we hosted a goodbye banquet for the Trip Members and we all danced the night away.

As a staff, we would like to thank you for sharing your children with us this summer.  We have learned just as much from them as they have hopefully learned from us.  As a group, we learned how to put up our campsite as a team in less than ten minutes; how to hold onto our belongings when on a ski lift; how to put down our phones and appreciate the natural beauty that surrounded us at Yellowstone National Park; how to work together on tandem bikes in Vancouver; how to beat each other in cards in every location we visited; how to speak a little French from our Canadian Trip Members; how to conquer each other at Whirlyball; and we learned everyone’s hometowns, similarities, and differences. And most of all, we learned that a group of young adults from all over the world can come together for a summer and create something very special. Not one of us will forget the memories that we made on this trip.

Thank you again for an excellent summer, and please stay in touch!
