Help Children Experience the Outdoors
Big City Mountaineers is committed to helping children from underserved communities across the country get outdoors and grow through their programs.
Participants get the chance to experience a range of outdoor activities from backpacking, to camping, to canoeing – all completely free of cost. Big City Mountaineers relies on volunteers, donations, and financial support to keep their programs running and available to as many children as possible. If climbing gear is on your holiday gift life, consider shopping with Trango & eGrips to make your spending even more impactful.
About Big City Mountaineers
For over 30 years, Big City Mountaineers has been working to break down barriers to outdoor access for children who otherwise would not have opportunities to explore the outdoors. Their program offers free, professionally-guided experiences for disinvested communities. They firmly believe in the transformative power of a personal connection with nature and its ability to build strength, resilience, confidence, and joy. A powerful experience and education that is rooted in nature challenges children to go beyond what they thought possible and explore different parts of themselves. Since their start, Big City Mountaineers has led over 800 expeditions, serving over 10,000 children with the help of over 5,000 volunteers. Big City Mountaineers is headquartered in Golden, Colorado, and runs programs in seven cities across the country. Read more about their mission and history at bigcitymountaineers.com.
