27:05 minutes (37.2 MB)

"Green Chucks" interviews Kyle Amore about his experiences as a camp counselor for Camp Fire USA's Rural Alaska. This program is unique because the camp counselors go to the kids; more specifically the camp counselors are flown to each native village where they conduct the camp. The program focuses on water safety and cold-water survival instruction. They provide swimming lessons and day camp activities to children and teens living in native communities. Kyle talks about the differences in cultures and life perspectives of native Alaskans and Americans. He also talked about his own culture shock and what he has gained from the experience.
