Since 2015, the Parkway Foundation's Campfire Outdoor Educational Site has provided over 5,600 youth from under-served communities and Title I schools across Sacramento County an enjoyable outdoor learning experience. Check out a video of the program here. Students come in groups of sixty and enjoy a nature hike where they learn about the flora and fauna; a water ferry engineering session; and macro aquatic invertebrate observations. The site is a partnership with the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE), which designed the STEM class that meets Next Generation Science Standards. Additionally, our Recreate for Health program has brought at-risk youth out to the site for art classes, bike rides, and public speaking classes.
We would like to request your support to serve 3,000 youth in 2018. Every $100 raised will provide four students the opportunity to enjoy the Campfire Site. Thank you!
