Starting with gratitude is a tradition at Wilderness Youth Project. As we begin the summer of 2015, we give thanks for our long term participants. Their stories, in their own words, are the best way to learn about how kids benefit from our programs (turn the page!). Hearing “where they grow from WYP” reminds us of the gifts of time in nature; curiosity, motivation, confidence and inspiration. We work year-round to be the bridge to nature for the youth of Santa Barbara. With 370 campers participating, summer is peak season for nature connection.
This summer YOU, our supporters, will enable WYP to provide $70,000 in scholarships to level the playing field and make sure our programs are accessible for youth from a diverse range of abilities as well as cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Your support represents a belief that nature connection truly makes us all smarter, healthier and happier.
Please take a moment today to plant seeds for the future by donating to Wilderness Youth Project’s Summer Scholarship Fund.
