City Kids Featured in the December 2011 Washingtonian

For a teenager who’s never left the District’s inner city, kayaking the Snake River might seem like something that happens only in the movies. But for 100 at-risk youth in the City Kids Wilderness Project, it’s just part of summer camp. Groups—made up of young people from age 11 to their early twenties—spend up to nine weeks at the nonprofit’s 62-acre ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where they can backpack through Yellowstone National Park, hike the Grand Tetons, and go horseback riding.
