Save the Date for City Kids 2017 Base Camp Benefit!

City Kids’ Base Camp Benefit is a gathering of our community in a beautiful outdoor setting for a relaxed afternoon of nature, food, & friends. Please come and join the community supporting, encouraging, and believing in our youth. Our community is a key part in helping them build resiliency, broaden horizons, and ensure the skills for success, and we hope you can join us in showing our youth how large their base camp of supporters is.
This year the Benefit will be held April 23rd, from 2-5pm, at Woodend Sanctuary & Mansion.  Join us for hikes, outdoor activities, and outdoor themed auction, food, drinks, and a celebration of City Kids, all in a beautiful and family friends outdoor setting.

City Kids Wilderness Project provides enriching outdoor adventure and career exploration programming that engages youth from 6th – 12th grade, and beyond. City Kids was founded in 1996 on the belief that providing enriching life experiences for under-resourced DC youth can enhance their lives, the lives of their families and the greater community.

Our Impact:

City Kids served over 130 youth in 2016. Of the youth that completed our high school program in the past three years:
• 96% graduated from high school, 4% completed their GED
• 78% enrolled in college, the military, or vocational training
