Together we can Do More for City Kids!
by City Kids Board of Directors
City Kids Wilderness Project has set a goal of $20,000 to raise during this year's #DoMore24 campaign. If we are to reach this goal, this would fully fund all flight expenses for our 20 new DC applicants to fly from DC to Jackson Hole, WY this summer. There, they will take part in a 3-week summer camp experience at Broken Arrow Ranch, and explore both Yellowstone and Grand Tetons National Park for their first time ever! The City Kids Board of Directors have set out to raise $2,500 and help make this goal a reality! Join us and make a contribution to DC youth today!

This year during #DoMore24, we have set a goal to raise $20,000 which would allow us to fully fund the flights and programmatic costs for all 20 of the incoming 6th grade students to fly from DC to Jackson, WY where they will embark on their first ever, 3-week summer camp experience, and to explore both Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks! I've seen first hand, how this program impacts the lives of DC youth, can you make a contribution today and support City Kids?

Diane for City Kids Wilderness Project
by Diane Davoine
"It's the first time I see nature for real, not through my TV screen. I want to experience nature, go out of my house, do new activities". This is what an 11-year-old girl told me during her first weekend trip with City Kids Wilderness Project a couple of weeks ago.

Horses and nature have been my source of light, inspiration and wisdom throughout my childhood and teenage years - and still are today. Outdoor experiences help us learn about ourselves and explore our connection with nature. They help us build courage, resilience, self-confidence, respect and discipline. They teach us how to open to others, trust and support them.

I believe that every kid should have the opportunity to experience nature, practice outdoor sports, and learn from these experiences. This is what City Kids Wilderness Project is offering to DC youth - with purpose, excellence and passion. The program enrolls kids from sixth grade and shepherds them through a six year or longer process to realize their individual potential, through after school and weekend outdoor adventures, job training and college preparation, and summer camps in Wyoming.

I have been volunteering with City Kids Wilderness Project since late 2017 and I see, during every weekend trip I assist, the extent to which the program benefits kids. This is impact - on their lives and our common future. These kids became my role models and they will shape the world of tomorrow.
