In addition, participants learn earth and life sciences, leadership skills, and the basics of environmental stewardship through our free Compass Youth Leadership program. For example, we teach orienteering through a combination of in-class lecture and a special field trip in which kids have to use map and compass to find movie gift certificates that we’ve hidden in the forest.
Boulder Valley ICO depends entirely on donations to provide transportation, food, equipment, and leader training to keep the program running. We have no paid staff and no overhead, so all contributions to The Sierra Club Foundation for Boulder Valley ICO go directly to fund outings. Your donation really makes a difference for the children we serve.
