For Campers Entering Grades 7 – 10
BOLD and GOLD (boys and girls outdoor leadership development) experiences are ideal for beginning and experienced campers, alike. BOLD and GOLD groups intentionally bring together campers from many different backgrounds to explore leadership with a focus on building courage, emotional intelligence, confidence, community awareness, and a sense of wonder for the natural environment. This program uses a curriculum layout from our BOLD/GOLD National partners to develop campers into the best leaders they can be..
Campers can expect to:
- Live with a group of seven other campers and one or two counselors
- Develop wilderness skills like paddling, climbing, or camping
- Learn about low-impact wilderness travel
- Build connections and friendships with other campers
- Challenge themselves under the supervision of our highly trained guides
- Build their leadership skills
