We are already gearing up for another amazing summer! As we think about the adventures we’ll be having, it is fun to reflect on some trips from last summer.
Hi everybody. My name is Emma and this is my second year coming to Sanborn. I climbed my first mountain EVER last Monday and Tuesday. It was Mount Ouray. It was very difficult, but a great experience. We summitted after 9 hours of hiking and rock scrambling. The view from the top was unbelievably beautiful. There is no way that anyone who has not climbed a mountain understands what it’s like – it’s amazing! Long trips start today for some people, but mine starts tomorrow. I am climbing my second mountain, Pikes Peak, as a 4-day trip. Camp is going by so quickly and it is so much fun! Sanborn is the best summer camp ever! – Emma Williams
Last week was SOLE for us freshmen. I was in the Colorado Trail / Belford group. We spent three days hiking the Colorado Trail, which was gorgeous. One Wednesday we were driven to the base of Oxford-Belford where we hiked up a trail for 1.5 miles with pickaxes and shovels. The next day we hiked another 2 miles to our trail work site where we moved rocks to cover up a false trail. The work was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done. However, it was completely worth it when we looked down at our work and saw what a difference we made. – Carly
The food here is very delicious and there is a lot of variety. It doesn’t matter if you are vegetarian, vegan, or whatever, the Sanborn kitchen will have something for you! The kitchen staff put out peanut butter and a salad bar, and oatmeal for breakfast, besides what is served on the tables. YUM! Sanborn gives us healthy and good meals! We have water, tea, juice, and milk to drink – no sodas (unless sometimes bought at the store). At the end of lunch and dinner there are desserts, like cookies or brownies or other yummy stuff! There is no better place to get food than the Sanborn Kitchen! – Raquel
