YEP Teen Ventures




Teen Ventures aims to optimize the lessons that the mountains can teach and apply them not only within the context of outdoor leadership, but in many ways that can benefit young participants as they transition to adulthood. YEP Teen Ventures is a great way to meet new friends and embark on new adventures.

Teen Ventures offers a variety of dynamic and exciting programming, specifically for 14-18 year olds. They are facilitated by YEP staff, but directed by teens on the TV Leadership & Advisory Board. Through outdoor adventure, stewardship and mentorship, participants are encouraged to explore, challenge themselves, and work together in planning and reaching goals.


What kind of adventures are we talking about?

• Rock Climbing
• Hiking
• Camping
• Kayaking & Rafting
• Winter Hut Trips
• Backpacking
• Stewardship & Service Projects

... and MUCH MORE!
