Teen Outdoor Leadership Development
Boys & Girls Outdoor Leadership (BOLD & GOLD) experiences are geared specifically for young people ages 11 to 18. Our expeditions will take you to some of the most beautiful and natural places in the Pacific Northwest. Not only are these trips full of natural beauty, but they’ll also inspire youth to be their most courageous and confident selves as they learn new skills, make lifelong friends and challenge themselves to run towards adventure. Plus, with expeditions leaving straight out of The Cascade People’s Center in South Lake Union, the outdoors have never been easier to get to!
