Sports Basement Outdoors and YMCA Camp Jones Gulch are partnering to provide a BOLD
& GOLD (Boys and Girls Outdoor Leadership Development) experience for free!
Teens accepted into this competitive program will develop leadership and outdoors skills
on a 5-day journey with a diverse group of their peers. Leave behind the lights of the city
in favor of Yosemite’s beautiful vistas, lakes, waterfalls, and wildlife. Priority will be given to
applicants who could not otherwise afford a similar opportunity.

August 6-10, 2018

All Genders

Ages 13-17

Sponsor a Student Today

For a typical trip of this length, the YMCA would charge about $700 per student to cover all of the costs of the trip. Thanks to the generous support of donors and Sports Basement Outdoors, we are offering this trip to accepted applicants free of charge. 

Help us give more Bay Area youth opportunities to explore the outdoors, develop leadership skills, and develop their confidence, courage, emotional intelligence, community awareness, and wonder!
