of the best ways to learn more about us is to contact our references
to get their perspective. Many of our past participants and their
families would be more than happy to discuss their experience
on a Williwaw expedition.
and I wanted to let you know what a wonderful experience Alayna
had with you. She always felt safe, challenged and quite proud
of herself. She stepped out of her safety zone and learned that
outside of that place there is a whole other life."

was the best camping experience he has ever had by far (having
had 4 previous summers at excellent camps). Both the activities
and the group experiences sound so fun, positive, educational,

would be impossible to overstate the effect that the adventure
had on him. Since returning home, he has talked about it incessantly,
raving not only about the activities, but (equally if not more
importantly) the people with whom he traveled. He met so many
other great kids, and he's talked about how they swapped contact
information, and want to have a reunion, and try and go on a trip
together next summer, and share photographs and so on and so on.
In addition, he had nothing but great things to say about the
guides. Educational but entertaining, authoritative but not tyrannical,
I think they are his new heroes. Who knew a city kid could be
... we are forever indebted to you for providing the opportunity.
Words can scarcely convey how impressed we are with your generosity
and commitment. If every kid you accept gains even half of what
Chris gained, then you should be incredibly proud of the work
you're doing. Thank you, thank you, and thank you.."

Mike! I dont know that I ever got to thank you - but even
today I still brag about my summer with Williwaw. I am always
more than happy to recommend it to your new participants. Today
I still hike and sail. Because of my experience with you - I am
still participating in the outdoor events that you taught me to
enjoy. I have been to a lot of summer programs and Williwaw has
certainly stood out from them; you own something great.

thought the instructors were fantastic, and they had so much to
share with us. Without them our trip would not have been nearly
as enjoyable. Also, the way that our group came together so quickly
is definitely due to them, and we owe them a great thanks, Furthermore,
the organization of everything astounded me, and I thought that
how everything came together seamlessly was really incredible.
You guys have a really great operation going on here, and I am
really glad that I was a part of it. Thank you all for such a

feel very different, I feel more capable and willing to be part
of a group, this experience has taught me so many lessons, and
I will never forget it. I am really glad that I was a part of it. Thank you all for such
a great experience.

i first read about the trip and signed up.. i got a little nervouse
about meeting these other kids my age.. and having to be compatible
or not.. feeling like you might get singled out.. but that was
not the case at all.. we all became like a true family.. and we
were always there for each other.. and it past my expectations
by far. I'm looking forward to next summer to sign up for another
trip with Williwaw.
