More about me:
I am the owner and operator of OBG Adventure Camps, the only travel & learning adventure excursion for girls 11-16 nationwide of its kind. The focus of the program is a multicultural camp experience, environmental engagement, cultural appreciation and waterfront fun (as ALL of the excursions go to waterfront locations like the US Virgin Islands, Hawaii, Catalina, etc.). My aim is to help give girls a world view through travel camp and to promote healthy outdoor recreation on the waterfront.

My personal camp story can be found on Oprah's Angel Network and I was recently profiled on American Airlines' BlackAtlas.com for Black History Month for my work with youth travel.

It's great to be here!

Hi Tracey,

After reading your profile, I came to realize there are sisters out there who are making a difference, and you are clearly one of them.  Let's talk sometime about adventure stuff.  Please send me your information; my email address is Errol@LakeRawlings.com.  Take care, and welcome to Diversity in Aquatics.

Sounds great. As for the lifeguards, we can add opportunities to our job board. As for the other stuff, would like to talk to you about it in more detail very soon.
