Programming in 2017

Our programs fall under three main categories and we hope to grow all three in 2017:

  • Outdoors and the Environment--Our outdoor education programs, are some of the most exciting endeavors we've ever embraced. We're thankful for the opportunity to teach kids outside nearly every week all year! We plan to continue to grow our Outdoor Education programs offering a wide range of adventurous outings for groups, individuals, and families. Our continued efforts with the Bracken Mountain Races and other local outdoor collaborators get us jazzed in thinking about what this year has in store.  Check it out!


  • Mountain Roots Day Camp--The growth of our Day Camp program is one of the highlights we experienced in 2016 and are psyched about growing in 2017. During Summer 2016 we were able to provide scholarships to 25 campers and look forward to helping even more families that deserve our quality camp experience in 2017. 


  • Leadership and Community Development--We plan to continue to expand our retreat offerings for schools, community and corporate groups. We provide opportunities for groups to engage in more leadership and community development. Our facilitators provide QUALITY growth experiences that are designed to meet each individual group's needs and work towards creating action steps to meet necessary changes.


By donating to Mountain Roots, you are helping to provide new and exciting educational opportunities to well-deserving and often ever-so-excited participants. Thanks for making our dreams come true and allowing our participants to learn, grow, and dream themselves! We ARE the change we hope to see and you are too!
