Our final morning in California began with a team breakfast on the outskirts of Yosemite. We brought a piece of Sis and Jasmine with us in the form of delicious huckleberry jam, which they gave us as a parting gift.
From breakfast, we boarded our charter bus for our day trip to San Francisco! Our first stop: Palace of Fine Arts!
We were in awe of the gorgeous architecture.
We even made a few new friends along the way!
The beautiful surroundings were the perfect place to have a final reflection before ending our program. Together, we shared our learnings from the week, our hopes for the future, and overwhelming love and appreciation for one another. Many of us entered this week as strangers, but we are leaving as a family. Having one another back at Emma means we will always have a piece of California.
After officially wrapping our program, we set out for one final adventure to play in the Pacific Ocean and admire the Golden Gate Bridge. It was incredible thinking about all of the different environments we had experienced over the last week.
What an incredible trip! Thank you to our phenomenal guides Ben, Juli, and Gabby, for making our experience as fantastic as it was. We will miss them, but are excited to continue using the lessons they have taught us to challenge ourselves and grow. Next and final stop: Emma Willard School.
Thank you for following along!
– Team California!
