Goombay Inc. Rock Creek Park
Yesterday we had the pleasure of taking a group of teens from the Ballou Stay Opportunity Academy on a 5.7 mile hike through Rock Creek Park in Washington, DC. The majority of the teens have never been on a hike or have never walked that distance.
Some of the challenges like steep long hills and intense rock scrambles were met with resistance but as they conquered each obstacle, that resistance became less and less.
Hopefully during their bus ride home they thought about their accomplishments and will use this new confidence in their everyday life.
Great job @balloustay
