I particiated in the Sequoia Summer Service Week to construct split rail fencing and perform trail maintenance activities. An enriching, exciting and fun experience. Pros- 1. I am so impressed with the park rangers team and the great work they do. It was truly inspring. 2. The arrangements for meals at the campsite were nice. 3. Since I took public transport to reach there, Sarah picked me from my drop off location to take me to the camp site, which was really very helpful. Areas of improvement - 1. The camp site was a bit far off from showers and restroom facility. 2 I think a 3 day service camp would have sufficed to do the work. 2. We never really got to meet the 'Volunteer-in-Parks &Youth Leadership Coordinator".
