CHOEF Scholarship Recipients Say Thank You


Beautiful Community

"I never could have taken this course without your donation. My parents are divorced and my mom just does not have money for any extras. Thank you so much for providing me with this experience. I can’t begin to fully explain what it meant to me. Keep donating and give other girls the chance to be part of this beautiful community."


Changed My Life for the Better

"I work two jobs and have to pay for everything I want to do due to the financial situation of my family. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me such a great opportunity that otherwise would be impossible. This trip has taught me how to have fun again. Not only this but it allowed me to be outdoors and let mother nature's beauty bring peace to me. I was able to be with a great group of wonderful girls and climb and sleep under the stars next to the purest rivers/streams that I have seen. This experience has forever changed my life for the better."


This Will Stay With Me Forever

"I had the time of my life on our backpacking trip. I’ll remember it forever. You made it possible and for that I am grateful. I tried to draw the mountains we saw but I don’t think any human can fully capture their beauty.

Thank you for helping me get to this course. I learned so much about the outdoors and how I interact with people. This will stay with me forever."
