Support Our Youth

Your financial support helps us connect kids with meaningful experiences in the natural outdoors. We know from both scientific research and anecdotal evidence that engaging youth in responsible outdoor recreation contributes to their emotional, intellectual and social well-being in very significant ways.


Thank You!

100% of Program Donations directly support youth activities in the natural outdoors. Your donations are used for the activities we sponsor or are awarded to individuals and groups for activities approved by OYC, usually with one of our program partners. The Endowment Fund is designed so your donations can make a difference for years to come. Your donations are invested to fund scholarships from income without depleting the principal. Every dollar donated benefits outdoor youth programs in perpetuity.
