Watts kids at Camp Roberts, 1967

Faces full of anticipation on August 22, 1967, these youngsters just got off the bus at Camp Roberts prepared for their first two weeks away from home.  They are among 2,400 children from Watts, 6 to 18 who are participating in the nation's first work, play and study program sponsored by the Office of Economic Opportunity and the Central Labor Council of Los Angeles.  The Children are Mayme Price, 8 and Joalita Price, 7, at right, who have eight brothers and sisters at the unique camp.  (Fred Sorri/Monterey County Herald)
