City Kids Know No Bounds
Over the last three weeks a large group has spent time in Jackson Hole kayaking, whitewater rafting, backpacking, camping and even climbing the Grand. The group has accomplished more in 21 or so days than most 90-day wonders ever dream of. But these aren’t your typical outdoorsmen or “dirtbags.” The group of river-running, mountain-tackling adolescents are here with City Kids, a nonprofit that provides underserved and at-risk Washington, D.C.-area youth with wilderness experiences. The organization is made up of sixth- through 12th-graders, and they visit Jackson each year to accomplish a laundry list of tasks.
