Camptown was one of 52 organizations awarded a grant through The North Face Explore Fund. The North Face Explore Fund
grants will affect more than 30,000 young people across the nation. Camptown’s grant will help support our year long Camptown
Youth Leader Program. The Camptown Youth Leader program is a service and leadership program that includes monthly
meetings and at least one activity per month. Last year our Youth Leaders went canoeing, hiking, climbing, backpacking and put in 512 hours of service to the community.
“First-hand experience is essential to ignite a passion for the outdoors, and that shouldn’t be limited by gender, race or income level,” said Ann Krcik, director of outdoor participation at The North Face. “At The North Face, we’re dedicated to providing everyone with the access to our natural playgrounds and the resources they need to get outside.”
If you know of a student ages 12-18 that would be interested in joining the Camptown Youth Leader program, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
