BOLD & GOLD
Based out of our Mammoth Lakes camp facility in the stunning Sierra Nevada mountain range, our BOLD & GOLD Outdoor Leadership Development program is a part of a national YMCA effort designed for middle school and high school students to experience outdoor adventure while fostering personal growth among a diverse group of peers.
This week-long outdoor program fosters leadership and teamwork skills through a series of hands-on challenges. Participants develop hands-on group experiences, all while experiencing nature and having an incredible time. Teens return from their BOLD & GOLD experience with great friendships and the confidence to succeed.
All BOLD & GOLD outdoor adventures are supervised by a team of caring YMCA staff and financial assistance is available for qualifying households.
Participants can choose from either Basecamp Adventures or Backcountry trips. The first and last day of each trip is reserved for traveling to and from the base camp site in either Big Bear (Middle School) or Mammoth (High School). Pick up and drop off is primarily from the Westchester YMCA.
