Get R.E.A.L (Recreational & Environmental Adventures in Learning) is a a partnership between the City of Tampa Parks and Recreation Department and the Florida State Parks that introduces city kids from low-income families to the great outdoors.
In May, 20 kids participated in a three-day camping trip at the Hillsborough River State Park
and learned how to set up tents, build a fire, fish and the importance of eating healthy food.
