Inner-City Outings, part 1

Posted at 09:00 /shows/outings [link [Bookmark Link]]
Listen now:

[Kids at Arroyo Seco] This outings program takes us on a campout with the Sierra Club's Inner-City Outings (ICO) section. This part one of two is a follow up to our original program on ethnic diversity among wilderness users.

Steve visits a campout led by the ICO at the Arroyo Seco Campground in the Los Padres National Forest. We hear from:

  • Gabriella, a campout participant and four-year veteran of ICO outings
  • Larry Volpe, a fifth-grade teacher and ICO leader
  • Sergio, a campout participant
  • Graciella, a campout participant
  • Debra Asher, the national administrator of the Sierra Club's Inner-City Outings

So what do the kids think of the Inner-City Outings program? How does it affect them and their parents? What's it like to be an ICO outing leader, and how can you become one? Find out next week, in part two.
