Video above shows a past teen camping trip (Parental Advisory - Hood kids :-)
The Objective: To take 50 Brooklyn teens Camping For 7 days this Summer.
The Description: Many of the teens we work with in our Foot Soldiers program have very little exposure outside of their “block” and to nature. They are so used to technology, noise, and speed that they tend to not see the value in environment, silence, and appreciating the atmosphere. The next trip will be July 22nd to 29th 2012. With the community's support the teens will only have to pay with their sweat. This trip is an opportunity for them to gain fund-raising, communication, and critical thinking experience before the trip. During the trip they will gain exposure to new environments and responsibilities, intense physical and positive camaraderie activities during the trip.
