This overnight camping trip with AOA was a great success! As the Co-Director for Arizona Outdoor Adventures, I get the privilege of taking youth on outdoor excursions. Our Non-Profit targets those kids who do not get opportunities to camp, hike, etc.
The groups of kids we took to Cottonwood for Camping and then kayaying with Clarkdale Kayak Co. were awesome. Our main program is to provide Camps in the White Mountains; we scheduled this camp locally so more youth could go. AOA works mainly with youth organizations that are in the Phoenix area; sometimes it’s difficult for them to go much further than a couple of hours.
I posted some photos and added captions for our time at Dead Horse State Park.
