Empowered in the Outdoors
Verascapes offers programs for adults, youths, and families. Our certified and talented team of guides and educators provide high-quality and rewarding (plus always fun!) outdoor experiences. Group sessions are small, giving each person a tailored, individualized approach to tap into their adventurous side. Our skill-building programs reduce barriers, ensuring everyone is part of a positive and meaningful experience in nature.
Lead By Example
Our leadership training and coaching is built on a framework of equity and inclusion. It is a pivotal piece to our goal of expanding BIPOC and LGBTQ+ leadership Roles within the outdoor industry and beyond. Our team of professional guides and instructors come from varying backgrounds, lending different perspectives to new ways of moving and being in the world.
It’s Your Community
Character-building and confidence come from taking on new challenges while being supported by a team of inspiring role models.
Athletic. Strong. Dynamic. Transparent. Thoughtful. These are just some of the qualities that make up our diverse community. Many of our participants go on to become Verascapes mentors and guides to expand and support our vision.
