In 2016, Camp Hi-Rock was one of 10 Ys chosen across the country to help expand an incredible YMCA program called BOLD & GOLD (Boys Outdoor Leadership Development & Girls Outdoor Leadership Development). Originally started in Seattle, BOLD & GOLD takes youth on wilderness trips. On these trips, youth are able to develop their fullest leadership potential as positive multicultural leaders in their communities. Our small groups (six to ten participants and two to three instructors) travel to some of the most beautiful and natural places in the Northeast to build their community. Using breathtaking wilderness classrooms, our participants return from our programs knowing that the confidence, strength and friendships they developed will help them meet any challenge on the trail, in the classroom, or back home in their communities.
