BOLD & GOLD Custom Programs

We work with schools, non-profits and for profit companies to build custom programs to meet the goals of each partner, ranging from workshops to multi-day expedition. As leaders in the field of outdoor education with over 15 years of experience facilitating and leading transformative outdoor experiences, we have the technical expertise and gear, risk management systems and insurance combined with a flexible curriculum to help your reach your desired outcomes and goals.

“We have been overwhelmed by the positive impact this program has had on our girls. They have become stronger classmates, friends, and human beings. Their work is truly transformational.”

– Jake Guadnola, Annie Wright Upper School

Wilderness and Rock Climbing Expeditions

Our expeditions teach responsibility, respect for others, decision making, communication skills, teamwork, and natural history. We offer opportunities to overcome challenges, encourage one another, and have time for reflection. We provide technical instruction, monitor individuals, and take care of all gear. 2–30 days.

Day Trips and Team Building

Have limited time? We lead specially designed activities on-site or at a nearby location to facilitate your goals for social and emotional development. Group facilitation, environmental/service learning projects, and celebrations are just a part of what we do!

Lead It Yourself

Already have a hardcore staff? Want to do it yourself? Have technical questions? Have an idea but limited budget? We’ll consult with you to share our knowledge about the best places to go and best trails to take.
