“National Geographic” Sponsors Teen Refugees at Baltimore Photo Camp


I grew up in West Baltimore, but many of my friends lived (or currently reside) in Catonsville, a town that begins where the southwestern city limits end. I’ve straddled the train tracks in Patapsco, tried tricks in St. Tim’s skate park, lit bottle rockets under the Frederick Road bridge. Now, from the 16th to the 19th, 20 teenage refugees will be working in my old stomping grounds, as part of National Geographic’s Baltimore Photo Camp.
