Camping Trip for underserved youth
Hello! Stephanie & Erin here from Community United. We are staff of this amazing non-profit and want to take the kids camping this summer at San Jose Family Camp in Yosemite for 4 days and 3 nights.
San Jose Family Camp has partnered with us to reduce the cost for the kids to go, which is awesome! We still need to pay for transport, staff and the camp fees. This camp provides experiences for the youth they otherwise are never exposed to. They get to participate in activities like, swimming, hiking, fishing and archery. They are also provided 3 full meals a day.
We have done training through another non-profit, Bay Area Wilderness Training, which allows us to use their entire gear library free of charge including sleeping bags, backpacks, water bottles, etc.
We are hoping to be able to bring 25 youth with the funds raised. The cost per youth is $200 for 4 days of outdoor, supervised, well-fed FUN! Please help us take our underserved, at-risk youth camping!
Update: We did it! We have increased the goal so that we can buy the youth things like life vests and floats to go down the river as well as plan additional outdoor activities for the youth this summer! Let's keep up the momentum!
