What a trip the Ultimate Arkansas teens are having! Following their backpacking trip the campers spent a day cleaning up, doing laundry, and going out to eat on their way to explore a cave in the Ozarks mountains. The cave trip was EPIC! Normally we spend about four hours in the cave crawling, climbing, and getting muddy. However, the trip was going so well that we decided to spend seven hours in the cave! Both the backpacking and cave trip have pushed the campers out of their comfort zones and allowed them to enjoy a real sense of accomplishment. Everyone is still having fun and were all smiles when they began their four day three night kayak river trip. Tomorrow the campers will end their river trip and start to head back towards home. But before they head home they will make another stop to celebrate their accomplishments while relaxing and tubing down a mountain stream. I know they will be happy to see all of their friends and family on Friday.
We would also like to say a BIG THANK YOU to the Discover Kayak campers who have already left and made it home. I am sure they had some great stories to tell everyone when they got home and we hope to see them again next year. We will try and get some more pictures up before the end of the summer for everyone to see.
