We activate kids from K-5th grade through entry-level instructional activities, such as a learn to ski program in the winter, a summer outdoor adventure program, Forest Friends, and our summer soccer camp. At this stage, the focus is on introducing kids to a variety of activities to spark a passion for the outdoors.
We engage middle school youth through mentor-based recreational activities. While we continue with the same activities, we add a critical mentoring element. Through a cohort-based mentoring model, our youth build deep relationships with their peers and trusted adults as they enter the minefield of middle school.
We empower high school youth through leadership training, internships, and continued outdoor recreation. Our high school youth serve as CO-mentors to our younger kids, explore careers and college, participate in internships, and continue to participate in a variety of outdoor adventures.
