Yampatika scholarship goes to Nebraska girl
Addison Henry, of Loup City, Neb., won the 2011 Yampatika Kid's Camp Scholarship sponsored by the Rebecca Adams Green Foundation, according to a news release. The foundation was created in 2010 to honor the memory of Steamboat Springs resident Rebecca Green, who died in 2009. The mission of the foundation is to brighten the future of children through education and nature-based experiences.
"Rebecca loved this area and these mountains. We are excited to be able to share her environment with kids who may not otherwise have the opportunity to experience it. Our hope is that it will have a lasting, positive effect on their lives," said Jenifer Adams-Mitchell, president of the foundation and sister of Rebecca.
Addison, 12, will attend the Yampatika Wilderness Pioneers I camp July 12 tp 15. She will be accompanied in Steamboat Springs by her parents, Kim and Paul.
