"I just wanted to tell you how much K enjoyed The Elements DC. She had so much fun and we loved hearing her happy stories from tromping around in the woods with your gang. Thanks for all the heart and thought that you put into this program. It's quite a unique experience and I'm glad that she had the opportunity to participate.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you. The best feedback in the world from a 10 year old, is when he wants to be dressed appropriately (so he won't be turned away from participating) and when he wants to always be on time!!! Yeah! Thank you for another great season!

"I can't say enough about this experience...not that I know about it really, but T had such a great time and when I see him playing out in the snow now with his buddies, I know he's had a lot more experience, fun, and adventure than I have experienced with him."

"I can’t begin to tell you how much the kids loved The Elements DC. They both looked forward to it each week, and as we neared the end of the session, they wanted to know why they couldn’t do it all year round.  (Have you considered summer camps?!).

"I worried that L would not like it very much [due to the cold], but she was super excited every week before and after each session. They also met some new friends and we can’t wait to have them show us through the park and share some of what they have learned.

"As a parent, I really appreciated the email updates and pictures – always nice to hear what they are up to in case the kids don’t share. Congrats on such an amazing program – clearly the leadership and enthusiasm displayed by the entire Elements crew stems from the top — and we are grateful to you for giving T and L such a wonderful experience.

"Sign us up for next year!"

"I have done [reBOOT] every year for the past five years and can't recommend it more highly.  I keep up with my weekly work/schedule and fit in clean eating, and some amazing hikes.

"Without a doubt, the best part is meeting some amazing women, and sharing the beautiful trails in the area. I have learned of great after school programs, wonderful restaurants, DC escapes and babysitters, all from hiking and being with The Elements DC reBOOT.

"Margaret Rietano is an incredible resource to all that is available to us in DC."

"Everything was Fantastic!! No need for improvement. The communication was out of this world — everything so clear and well explained. Perfection all around! The great people, the fine dining and comfy hotel, the fab breakfast, the challenging hikes, and most of all the scintillating discussions as we scrabbled up the hilly paths. Wonderful people!"

"What a wonderful experience! Hotel & meals were fantastic. I loved the hikes. I loved the part of that day when we broke off into smaller groups. Loved the people and loved the welcoming feel. It was all so thoughtfully done. And love my book of poems. Beautiful."
