The Nickerson Gardens housing project loomed in the background as 25 children filed onto a yellow school bus that by day's end would transform Los Angeles' labyrinth of streets and freeways into an adventure map and take them worlds away from their graffiti-marred neighborhoods. On the typically busy day in the winter session of L.A. City Camp, the bus full of 10- to 12-year-olds wove its way from Watts to a health club in Manhattan Beach and to a state park near Malibu.

"This lasts only 11 minutes for all this paper?" Arika asked production coordinator Kim Karnatz, while thumbing through a thick black binder of drawings from an episode of "Rocko's Modern Life."
