Stranded and trapped at the Rocky Mountain Pathways Camp in Allenstown, Colorado, 32 students spent the past several days wondering when they would come home.

“It was supposed to be a trip to learn about the outdoors, until the storm hit,” said Lenelle Johnson, a student at the Options For Youth Charter High School.

“We had no internet, not TV, and no phone service,” Johnson told FOX40.

The high school student arrived in Sacramento with her classmates Sunday morning.

“We were there since September 3rd, it was supposed to be a 10 day trip,” she said.

But, the group was trapped as one of the worst storms in Colorado history swept in and killed at least four people.

“Finally, the weather cleared. We had two hours to get to the airport and we made it,” Johnson said.

The students arrived by plane and were dropped off at the Options for Youth parking lot where friends and family met to pick them up.

“I am happy to see my mom and sister, I am grateful,” Johnson said.
