“Every single day was breathtaking, and the entire experience has completely reshaped who I understand myself to be… I had never gone to a summer program prior to Cottonwood Gulch because of the expense, because of the scholarship I received, I had, by far, the most amazing summer of my life.”

–Lily, Mountain Desert Trek
