Description
The Teen Outdoor Experience is a 4-day overnight summer camp for teen boys and girls 14-17 years of age who are involved with the juvenile justice system and presently assigned to a juvenile probation officer.

Participants will participate in a comprehensive outdoor recreational experience to demonstrate their potential in becoming outdoor recreational leaders. As part of the summer camp experience, selected participants will be recruited into a leadership program, given the opportunity to assist in camps operated by the Recreation and Parks Department, and gain valuable experience necessary to become leaders and mentors in their communities. This camping/leadership opportunity will open a door for job placement, job training, and/or job readiness. The identification of participants for the leadership program will be based on criteria put forth by the Recreation and Parks Department.

Camp Mather is located on the outskirts of Yosemite National Park, approximately 3 hours from San Francisco, in the High Sierra mountains. The camp is owned by the City and County of San Francisco and operated by the San Francisco Department of Recreation and Parks.
