The first time Tiffany Chan came to IslandWood she was a ten-year-old girl from Wing Luke Elementary taking part in the School Overnight Program (SOP).
The container was not much bigger than a tuna fish can, recalls Nick Balera. It was metal and rusted shut.
Sending a child on an overnight school experience is hard for many parents. But for some families, religious or cultural considerations make the decision that much more difficult.
Rico and his classmates followed a trail through the forest and across a meadow to reach the lodge where they would sleep four to a room and relax with friends around a grand, stone fireplace.
“Wow!” Kari remembers thinking as she entered the Great Hall at IslandWood as part of the School Overnight Program.
