Adventure for Someone

why adventure for someone?

Many of us experience the wonder and sense of well-being associated with time spent in nature. Holding your own or donating to an existing  Adventure for Someone (AFS) campaign is an opportunity to harness your passions for the outdoors to extend the benefits of nature to today’s generation of young people, particularly those who face increased and systemic barriers to equitable access.

100% of proceeds support Big City Mountaineers’ youth programs that offer transformative experiences in nature for youth who otherwise would not have the opportunity. Together, we can shape the next generation of compassionate, skilled and responsible outdoor enthusiasts.

Campaign Gear Incentives

Making a difference feels even better when you can do it with some well-earned BCM swag. Depending on how much your campaign has raised or how much you have donated to an existing campaign, you can end your AFS journey with cool swag to equip your next adventure.

This year’s gear incentives are made possible by our generous brand partners. More gear will be added throughout the year!

get started with an adventure of your choosing

In just a few minutes, you can be ready to Adventure for Someone. That means you’ll be raising funds for Big City Mountaineers through a custom giveback campaign as you hike, backpack, paddle or do whatever you’re passionate about, at whatever skill or intensity level you are comfortable with. Whether you’re heading out with friends, bonding with coworkers or going solo, you’ll be supporting our mission of providing transformative experiences for youth from disinvested communities. 

How to Adventure for Someone

Choose Your Adventure

Pick something that challenges, motivates and excites you at a level of intensity that is comfortable to you. Because that’s what makes your adventure compelling to donors too!

Make It Official
