Student Interns Participate Overnight Camping Adventure

Shenandoah National Park

National Park News

On June 21st and 22nd, Shenandoah hosted a group of ten college student athletes enrolled in a DC Children and Youth Investment Trust Corporation summer internship program for an overnight camping and hiking experience in the park.  

In collaboration with the WASO Office of Equal Opportunity Programs, WASO Training and Development, and Darryl Haley from Howard University Radio, park staff developed a two-day itinerary that provided hiking and outdoor challenges and a supportive camping experience for the students. 

Interpretive rangers led two hikes, and park staff taught the students how to set up camp and campground etiquette.   

The students connected to the resource in unexpected way and were excited to realize that this experience was only two hours away.
