Our vision for  Y Camping and Outdoor Leadership this fall and beyond is bold. COVID-19 has caused a massive disruption to our operations and has highlighted health disparities in our community. This disruption, combined with the resounding call for undoing systemic racism, has created an opportunity – a responsibility – to reimagine the way we employ our assets – including our leaders, properties, and expertise.  We recognize we are among the leaders in serving a diversity of participants in the outdoors and we recognize there is more to do for communities of color to feel welcome and at home in these spaces. 

We are committed to listening, to inviting all stakeholders to inform and develop the trail forward, and to being held accountable by these stakeholders (which includes you!)
