Camping opportunities for inner city youth

The City's Department of Recreation and Parks will provide hundreds of inner city youth with an opportunity to experience overnight campaign this spring through its Wonderful Outdoor World (WOW) program. I'm excited that the Hollywood Recreation Center will be one of the WOW sites this year.

The Hollywood Rec Center WOW program will be April 3-4, 2009. Campers will learn about basic camping skills such as tent set-up, basic first aid and fire safety; caring for our environment; our ecosystem; and astronomy. All campers receive a sleeping bag, journal, and t-shirt. The cost is $5 per camper.
