The program was new and should be getting better organized. I would return to Shepherd Springs for the quality of the food and the delightful staff.


The volunteer service vacation at Antietam NP was a wonderful experience. We met many wonderful people who were sharing the experience, and also NPS staff. All were welcoming. We hope to return next year.


was a very rewarding week. learned a lot about the one day battle. will do again


This was my first service trip. It was a most gratifying experience from start to finish and I would highly recommend trying a service project. In addition to the work on the Antietam battlefield there are so many things to do in the local area.


I recommend this program for anyone interested in service. The work was well planned and seemed to be appreciated. There was a variety of work at various activity levels. The accommodations and food were very good. There were several field trips and a presentation every evening so I learned something. About half of the 16 participants were returnees which tells you something. We even had good weather! I understand that can't be guaranteed.
