TRIAD hosts One-Night Camping event for youth | Schools
When you think of a camping trip in the Mississippi summer, most people automatically think hot, hot and hot.
For a group of young leaders with and without disabilities, heat was not an issue for their summer camping trip since they had an indoor camp-out combined with a wet weekend of fun. The one-night camping event, held last month, was hosted by the TRIAD Service AmeriCorps members and the Technology Learning Center, both a part of the Institute for Disability Studies on The University of Southern Mississippi’s Gulf Park campus in Long Beach.
