Exposing City Kids to the Outdoors

If you read the New York Times much (and surveys show that you do), you've probably seen ads for The Fresh Air Fund. It is a not-for-profit that provides free summer vacations in the country to New York City children from disadvantaged communities. Each year, thousands of children visit volunteer host families in 13 states and Canada through the Friendly Town Program or at Fresh Air camps. Pretty cool program, I guess.

There is a similar program here in Texas that exposes urban kids to the outdoors. Except, instead of shipping the underprivileged tykes off to summer camp, the kids are take part in the state's "largest youth deer hunt."

What? You're not familiar with this event? Oh, you probably know it by it's more common name: the Super Hunt. They just had the 4th annual Super Hunt. Awesomeness!

(My apologies for the video quality. It's less than stellar.)

Sweet...just what we need. Government-funded programs so that inner-city kids (aka Future Crips of America) acquire firearms skills.
yes. because your oh-so-humorously named "future crips of america" are using hunting rifles in the inner city. excellent point. i am amazed you didn't want to associate your name with such insightful commentary.
