Adventure awaits!

Find yourself in the great outdoors

The YMCA Outdoor Leadership Development program helps young people make bold strides toward competent selfhood. Through extraordinary wilderness experiences, we nurture multi-cultural leadership skills in youth 12-17 years old.

We offer expeditions that range from 6-9 days, including backpacking, rock climbing, fishing, art, and the kind of good-natured fun that leads to long-term friendships. You don't have to have experience or outdoor gear, but you do need an open heart, an inquisitive mind, and a thirst for adventure.

Join us in exploring nature's sprawling grandeur-we'll teach you the leadership skills you need to thrive in the wild, as well as in high school, college, and beyond!
