Many urban youth lack opportunities to learn about the environment and experience the natural world first hand. A New York City childhood is spent playing in the park, learning about “nature” in museums or on television. It can be difficult to find a single patch of green, let alone the grandeur of the wilderness and the clarity and direction it gives to our lives. At Christodora, we believe an escape from the concrete is not just a privilege—it’s a transformative experience that allows youth to better understand the natural world and shape their role within it.
