Great video to sell Yosemite to urban kids afraid of the wild

Last year I had thought of trying to set up a 6th grade trip to Yosemite. I was teaching in a very urban school, and many of my students were afraid of the idea because it was not something they had any exposure to. Their families did not go camping, and feared bears, falling from rocks, etc. This youth-produced video will do a great service for Yosemite. I’m so glad they made it. I took pictures on many of my visits, but it is not enough. Kids need to picture themselves going, that it is something they could do. Check it out! Appreciation for the outdoors lingers back at home.
