Video: NYC Inner City Kids Kayak Camp

Nick Troutman recently posted a video of him and Emily Jackson working with the Upward Bound program is past summer.

Here is the description on Vimeo:
Every year Soft Power Health teams up with the Upward Bound program from Boys and Girls Harbor. We take these kids, some not even knowing how to swim, and we teach them how to kayak. We start with getting comfortable being in the water in a pool, then move to a Long Island beach and bay, and finally ending with two different river runs. Here is the group from 2010.
