Mi hija estuvo muy contenta en el viaje, le encanto la comida y poder ayudar en la cocina.

I had a good time on the 6th grade trip. It was harder than I expected it to be because the hike had more rugged terrain and the walk to the restaurant up to the restaurant was harder than expected. I wouldn't change anything, I would let people know. I think it would also be a good idea to inform people that in the morning and at night it is very cold so they should bring warm clothing and sweatshirts. The showers are freezing, so I am glad that I brought baby-wipes because it was my main cleaning sources. I am glad I brought bug repellant because there were a lot of bugs. The food was really really good. I especially liked the fish. I liked learning how to make jam and cheese because it was very tasty. I think next year they should improve the tents because we were getting bug bites inside at night. I liked that we had another place to put our bags. The cabin situation was good for people who hadn't slept outdoors before. I wish we had more time to spend with the people in Yungilla - an activity to interact.

It was a great time because all of the activities were fun and I learned a lot of new things. Although it rained every night, the camping was good because the tents were very waterproof and none of our stuff got wet. The food was great. I especially liked that there were local foods to try. I wish there was a little more break time because we did a lot of work throughout the day and we were exhausted. I think all of the activities were good (leadership, the river, service learning), but I would have liked to see more of the area and the culture of the Tsa'chilla.
