Lilia Johns, 2022 Trails to Sea Participant, age 11
“I'd never backpacked before, and I was scared and nervous. But I did it. The instructors were so helpful. I learned about my body. I learned how to pack, cook food with a small amount of materials, how to use things in nature around me, and how to set up a tent. All of that was great but the best part was spending time with new people and being at the beach."

“It was amazing to hear my daughter describe her experience. She was so proud of everything she accomplished for herself, and she had so much fun playing games, telling jokes, and creating skits. After the trip, she had so much information to share about how she felt growing up and understanding others' experiences."
