BOLD & GOLD

SOMETHING MAGICAL HAPPENS WHEN A DIVERSE GROUP OF YOUNG PEOPLE GO INTO BEAUTIFUL, REMOTE AREAS IN NATURE TOGETHER.

Courage, confidence and community awareness all come out—and wonderment rules supreme. Boys and Girls Outdoor Leadership Development or BOLD & GOLD fosters a sense of awe in the wilderness.
 
We take small, single gender groups of middle and high school students into the great outdoors without technology to discover what it means to truly connect on a one-week trip. And through these connections, our participants learn how to be great leaders.

Our expeditions will take you to some of the most beautiful and natural places in the Southern Appalachians. 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.
