QF has awarded $500 to support Cal-Wood’s latino camp program. The ever-increasing numbers of low-income Latino families in Colorado have very few resources by which to learn about, explore, and enjoy the Colorado natural resources. While the Rocky Mountains are visible from along the Front Range, they remain largely unexplored by families with limited resources. Through their Latino Family Camp program, families spend a weekend camping in our beautiful 1,200-acre classroom. Families learn to set up a tent, how to hike and fish, and experience a wide range of other outdoor learning opportunities such as archery, survival skills, astronomy, and more. Team building games and campfire songs are also a big part of the weekend.
Thanks again for the effort and creativity that went into this quarter’s video submissions! If you weren’t selected for funding, we invite you to keep an eye on our focus areas and submit again soon.
