Review for Sheriff's Community Impact Program, Sacramento, CA, USA
This summer I volunteered with an outdoor program through the Sheriff's Community Impact Program. On just one of our trips we took a highly diverse group of young teens camping, swimming in the Yuba River, on a ropes course and hiking to the top of the Sierra Buttes just below 9,000 feet. For some, they had never been in a river before, some had never been camping, and others had never been on a hike. And none of them had ever been up high enough to see the tops of other mountains around them, or seen snow in July. I saw confidence build, friendships form, and a love for nature and the outdoors grow. I am sure this trip impacted these kids on levels they aren't even aware of. Without SCIP, this program would not exist and these children would not be able to experience the vast natural world that we are so innately connected to. Thank you SCIP!
