Thank you!

Thank you for joining us on February 24th at the Mountaineers Seattle Program Center! By coming to our 2018 Auction and donating, you have supported our 10 year commitment to youth leadership development in the Pacific Northwest. 

With your generous help, we raised enough money to fund our Seattle training center, the purchase of climbing, rafting and other adventure equipment, and our scholarship fund so every interested youth can participate, regardless of their ability to pay. 

There's no time to waste - we're getting to work! We want to keep you in the loop as we launch into spring recruitment in preparation for our summer expeditions. Send questions to:

A special thank you to our sponsors: Carl & An-Marie Bellows, eXp Realty, Karl Kohagen & Associates, and Sound Seismic.

Upcoming 2018 Adventures

This year we have a new location to take care of, new youth entering the program, and lots of exciting places to explore! Our big trips are in the summer, but the spring is when we work to make them happen.

We will be backpacking in Olympic National Park and all along the Wonderland Trail, developing strong navigation and gear management skills.

Youth will train for Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Baker, Mt. Rainier, and Glacier Peak, while becoming rock climbing instructors and dreaming about the Cirque of the Unclimbables (maybe next year!).

We are pushing our water skills by kayaking further North in the San Juan Islands and further South into Commencement Bay, as well as sharpening swiftwater rescue and boat captain skills on the Deschutes River in Oregon and the Lower Salmon River in Idaho.
