We started in Hagerman, Idaho with H.A.R.T. (High Adventure River Tours) They have a camp ground and it was an all inclusive trip that included camping, meals, and river rafting. These guys are awesome!!! If you are looking for a river rafting trip and you are in the Idaho area, Check out HART of Idaho.

This was the most incredible group of kids I have ever been with. There was no drama, and such a sense of love for one another.
Hagerman National Fish Hatchery. These Sturgeon are 20 years old, and they are HUGE!!! They love the attention and will let you pet them.
Camp is not all fun and games. We had some deep discussions and a lot of bible time.
So much fun!!!!
Playing slip-n-slide on the snake river.
Worship time and a lesson.
What would camping be without a nightly toad hunt?
Twin Falls, Idaho
Shoshone Falls, Idaho
We had a blast on this trip. I got to share a tent with the older girls, and we had so much giggly fun! Working with these boys and girls and connecting with them has been such a wonderful experience. So many of them come from really tough circumstances that they did not ask for, but they were thrown into anyway. Some of them are just trying to cope. Others are beyond that stage and are survivors. They are wonderful girls and boys who have so much love to give and so much potential, if only they could see that they are loved unconditionally. I am so humbled that so many of them have chosen to call me friend and share with me their struggles, and bestow upon me their trust.
