A quick thank you video to show what we've been up to recently. Thanks to all who help make this club a reality!
BCC Prep Outdoors is the hiking and outdoor club at Bronx Career & College Preparatory High School (BCC Prep). BCC Prep is a new public school entering its second year. We are located in the south Bronx and serve a largely minority, low income community.
BCC Prep Outdoors is the first club at the school and was created in response to demand by students. We have a few major goals:
- Provide students with opportunities to get outdoors
- Connect students with other organizations with similar goals
- Develop leadership skills, self-confidence, and healthy habits
- Have FUN!
Our current goal, since we are run by a full-time teacher, is to go on at least 1 outing per month. By the end of the year, we hope to have all the equipment needed to go on a multi-day backpacking trip.
With these goals in mind, we are currently looking for gear donations, sponsors, and rental programs that can help us. In addition, we are seeking to establish working relationships with other organizations with existing infrastructure and abilities who would be willing to connect with some of our students. If you or someone you know would be interested, please contact us!
