A program that takes youth out of the city and into the wilderness.

Get Involved. Take Action.


Make a tax-deductible contribution in any amount to the cause. Does your company make matching gifts? Many do; ask your human resources department for a simple form. Your contributions will fund urban youth getting out of the classrooms and into the wilderness, trading the handout for a hands-on experience.




Educators, find out how we can work for your students, school, and community.
