Outdoor Adventure

Partnerships with Community Organizations and Schools


YES partners with Boston schools, youth-serving groups, and faith-based youth groups to offer rock climbing, kayaking, and mountain biking activities for youth ages 7-18. Community organizations and schools that enroll in this program will bring their youth on a low-cost one-day trip in Greater Boston. YES partners with local climbing gyms, Charles River Canoe & Kayak, and maintains a fleet of mountain bikes for youth to use.

These programs take place on weekdays from July to August. The Outdoor Adventure program allows youth to experience a physical adventure and a mental challenge to promote a positive self image and group unity.
