Through a unique year-round program, CampInteractive introduces the creative power of technology and the inspiration of the outdoors to underprivileged inner-city youth. Our vision is to use positive experiences to broaden horizons and empower young people to believe in themselves and their futures!
Using both technology and the environment as educational tools, CampInteractive addresses two problems that an underfunded American public educational system faces: providing kids with technological skills for the 21st century, and instilling a sense of community where teamwork and self-confidence can flourish.
Now, we at CampInteractive want to build a new program to support inner-city kids: Team Interactive. Many kids in urban environments are not staying active and this is having a major effect on their health and ability to take on life's many challenges. Team InterActive aims to take this problem head on with a new and unique program that will integrate technology with running. The kids will go on runs with their friends and coaches and have great bonding experiences, then they will share what they have learned using technology in order to inspire other kids around the world to get active!
Usain Bolt (three-time World and Olympic gold medalist) is leading our team into the NYC Half-Marathon this year and running for Camp Interactive!
