FREE YMCA Youth Yosemite Backpacking Trip!

Sports Basement Outdoors and YMCA Camp Jones Gulch are partnering to provide a BOLD & GOLD (Boys and Girls Outdoor Leadership Development) experience for free! Teens accepted into this competitive program will develop leadership and outdoors skills on a 5-day journey with a diverse group of their peers. Leave behind the lights of the city in favor of Yosemite’s beautiful vistas, lakes, waterfalls, and wildlife. Priority will be given to applicants who could not otherwise afford a similar opportunity.

ONLY 12 spots available for outstanding youth, so please apply or nominate a youth by June 15.


Route is the same as our Ten Lakes Introduction to Backpacking Trip

(with an additional night to incorporate the BOLD & GOLD curriculum.
