Sorry about the super late response! As it turns out, I was actually unable to accept my crew offer for this summer due to another incredible but unforeseen opportunity. But, still, congrats!! The KEMO crew is going to be SO fun, and you are going to learn so much living in a National Battlefield Park! At the end of month long crews, there is a four day rec trip, which is a total blast. Since the battlefield is so close to the city but also close to some national forests, there are tons of opportunities of what to do. On my crew last year, we took an awesome road trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway to Asheville, NC, where we got to see our crew's favorite bluegrass band, Mipso, perform, drove/walked (it was a combination) to the top of Mt. Mitchell, which is the tallest mountain east of the Mississippi, and spent a night backpacking on the Appalachian Trail. It all really depends what your crew feels like doing.
