Boys & Girls Outdoor Leadership Development


BOLD & GOLD Rafting

2017 Summer Program Registration is Now Open!


Through outdoor adventures and wilderness experiences, the BOLD & GOLD program inspires courage and multi-cultural leadership in diverse groups of boys and girls ages 14-18 years old. The challenge, glory and beauty of the wilderness come together on our exciting two-week expeditions.

BE YOURSELF, BE A LEADER, BE BOLD!

Boys Outdoor Leadership Development


Being out in the woods with a group of all boys allows our participants to be themselves while stepping out of their comfort zone on this new adventure. Our participants get to have fun exploring the wonder of the wilderness while learning what it means to be an emotionally intelligent male back home in their communities. Through the challenges they face on trail and the support they receive from their new friends, our participants come back from their trip with higher self-esteem, positive relationships with their peers and adults, and a feeling that they can take on the world! This is the reason many of our participants come back year after year to experience new adventures, see new places, and make new friends! We hope you join us as we carry on this amazing tradition!

Girls Outdoor Leadership Development


By bringing groups of girls together on wilderness adventures, GOLD gives young women the opportunity to be their courageous selves as they bond with a group of their peers in some of the most beautiful places in Northern California! Alongside your new friends you'll explore our coastal waterways, go expedition backpacking, learn primitive camping skills, and challenge yourselves white-water rafting on the American River!
