We’re Here to Help
Oboz and Black Folks Camp Too have teamed up to bring you a series of videos to answer questions and address concerns you may have about going outside, whether it’s to hike, camp, or even just for a family picnic.
We know that recreating outside for the first time can be intimidating—you might even have a friend who had a not-so-pleasant first experience. Our goal with these videos is to empower you with the knowledge you need to have an amazing first time on the trails or at the campsite…which we hope will lead to more firsts in the world of outdoor adventure.
