Outdoor Adventure

Applications for the Outdoor Adventure 2018 Program will open in April 2018.


Outdoor Adventure (OA) gives young people the opportunity to explore the environment and develop meaningful relationships while having fun. Youth challenge themselves through outdoor activities such as: kayaking, rock climbing, fishing, golfing, mountain biking, paddleboarding and overnights at YES’s Swann Lodge. By trying new things in the outdoors youth grow in confidence, character, and curiosity about the natural world around them.

The Outdoor Adventure Program will consist of two sessions this summer. Each session will provide three weeks of outdoor activities around Boston and at YES’s Swann Lodge in the Berkshires (Monterey, MA). Click on the link below to view details!

Ages: 9 – 12 years

The Boston-based weekdays operate from 8:30 am – 4 pm. This year, YES will also be offering an hour of aftercare from 4 pm – 5 pm for no additional cost.

The overnight component will take place at YES’s Swann Lodge in Monterey, MA.
