Warrior ‘Boot Camp’ ~ Veterans Mentor Disabled Youth ‘military style
(Chatham NY)  A dozen local youth with a variety of special needs and disabilities are expressly invited to spend a weekend in barracks-style canvas tents, sleep on cots and don military style uniforms, taking orders from veterans at the campsite named ‘Yellow Ribbon’ pavilion. If there is something that Soldiers and Marines are good at, it is leading from the front and working as a team to serve. These ideals will be put to test when regional Wounded Warriors are paired up one-on-one with STRIDE Adaptive Sports youth for a Military –style Boot Camp  retreat at the STRIDE Center for Outdoor Recreation and Education ( SCORE) in Chatham NY.
