“Overall the trip was awesome and left a lasting impression. So often we are sent somewhere and a week later are gone again on the next job but I keep coming back to think what a great time I had. I wasn't entirely sure what the program was about when I left but I do know that if the end state is to recharge, feel more relaxed, less stressed, make new friends, build lasting relationships and memories, and just have a good time all around then the objective was met.”

"Really what we need is something to take us away from work, something to help us get back, to feel human again. Being in that type of environment melted away all the stress in my life, and I finally felt free. Big Sky Bravery changed my life."
