Rocky Mountain 7-day Backpacking for 2SLGBTQ+ Youth

Join fellow 2SLGBTQ+ youth to explore the epic Rocky Mountains!

This backpacking adventure will take you alongside rivers, over mountain passes, through alpine meadows, and you may even see a rainbow or two along the way! After a long day full of activity, debrief with other 2SLGBTQ+ peers while sitting around a campfire under the stars. Your instructors will help create a supportive space to learn technical and personal skills to help you thrive in your community, school, and workplace. This unique course will unlock your true potential and help you realize that you are capable of more than you think.
