For the past decade, Elemental Awareness has sent groups of kids from underserved communities to Element Skate Camp. We believe that Skate Camp is one of the best places on earth, and that anyone can benefit from the experience of skateboarding in nature. This year we brought 10 kids from South Central Los Angeles up with us for a week at camp. Some of them had never been outside of LA, let alone seen the giant redwoods, or the Milky Way. It was an unforgettable experience, not only for the kids involved, but for us as well. We would like to give a special thanks to the New Balance Foundation for helping make this trip a reality, and for their continued support.
