Welcome to the start of our third year!
OutDoor Strong is a Non-Profit, free summer camp, focusing on the under-served and at-risk Middle School aged youth of Montgomery County, Maryland.
Our camp provides these boys and girls an opportunity to strengthen their minds, their physical bodies and their spirit through outdoor sports and physical activities, volunteer efforts, games and group discussions. They develop new and healthy friendships and a strong community of support. We successfully completed our second year during the summer of 2018 and would like to share our story and mission with you.
Every child deserves at least part of their summer to be carefree. In our current environment too many kids are inactive, too much of their time. With their attention focused on technology and social media at best, learning bad habits at worst. OutDoor Strong’s goal is to introduce fresh air, physical activity and fun into the daily lives of kids who otherwise would not have this opportunity.
How You Can Support
There are many ways you can support this important mission:
Time + Participation
Materials + Facilities
A Day In The Life
We all had a lot of fun in the summers of 2018 and 2017. We have posted some videos here to give you a sense of things we did. We were physically active, we were outdoors, we made new friends, explored new places, stretched our minds and bodies and spirits. We grew more confident and gained some new insights into who we are becoming and how we can all help to steer that growth.
