As we experience the challenges of being in wild places, we will explore what leadership
means while creating new friendships and lifelong memories. Our participants will return from their BOLD/GOLD experience 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.
