Building a community and network for underserved youth and families.
October 12, 2020
On October 10 - 12, Urban Outdoor Adventurers took 6 youth on a camping trip. They got to experience camping, hiking, canoeing, and backpacking. We had a great time camping and doing something normal while being safe!
The Urban Outdoor Adventurers hosted a 5-Mile hike for the youth. They cross the George Washington Bridge, took the Carpenter's Trail, and had lunch at the Picnic Area on the NJ side. It was a nice warm-up to doing outdoor activities.
