Describe your most memorable moment.

In 1996 my teammate, myself and our experiential educators took a group of 12 students (ages 12-14) on a camping trip to Washington D.C. There was a great deal of planning and extra teamwork (including the students) involved. It was a very memorable trip for everyone involved.
