Wonderful Outdoor World Colorado
WOW Colorado is a unique program that introduces urban youth, age’s eight to eleven, to outdoor recreation during a controlled and safe twenty-four hour camping experience. With the crucial support provided by grants and sponsors, WOW is able to utilize a multitude of partnerships to serve hundreds of underserved youth per summer. WOW focuses on serving children from lower socioeconomic areas, which ensure the wonders of camping and the benefits of active living that go along with it, are available to all. WOW’s mission is to provide this experience to urban youth to foster basic camping skills, teach healthy eating habits in this new setting for most of WOW participants, enhance community values, give the opportunity to make new friends, and encourage youth to further enjoy the outdoors.
