During spring, summer, and fall, the Outdoor Adventure Program at YES gives young people the opportunity to experience the outdoors in new ways, be physically active, and connect with positive adult role models while having fun!
YES Family Adventures
YES now offers activities for families to spend time together rock climbing, paddling, hiking, or biking with YES’s expert instructors. At least one adult (maximum two) and maximum six youth can participate in the session. Families will meet YES at the designated site. Each activity can be scheduled at a selection of locations based on your ability to travel to each. Social distancing, hygiene, cleaning, and health testing protocols will be followed per MA Department of Public Health guidelines.
Saturday mornings are for biking with YES. Youth 7-18 can learn to bike, improve their riding skills, or just go for a ride on the Southwest Corridor with YES staff and volunteers. YES has all the gear necessary to safely bike, making it the perfect way to get out and bike. Saturday biking is a drop-in program, but you can pre-register.
Trips run every Saturday from July 17 – August 14. Meet at Urban Edge parking lot between 10am and 12 noon.
Fun Fitness Saturdays
In winter 2021, YES hosted a series of fun fitness events on Saturdays at Franklin Park in Boston. Youth were invited to stay active, through activities that include hiking, yoga, boot camp, running, and more! This program was free and open to all ages and abilities.
