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. The program is a partnership with the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE), which designed the STEM class that meets Next Generation Science Standards. 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 aquatic macro-invertebrate observations. The curriculum is designed for 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th grades and is truly impacting the academic success of the youth who have the opportunity to attend.
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!
