"There will always be obstacles, but complaining won't help. Think positively, instead." -BCM youth

You can't complain obstacles away; especially in the outdoors. One BCM youth learned that thinking positively helps you get through some of toughest problems on their youth expedition. #PowerOfTheOutdoors

"For three consecutive summers, I went on a backpacking trip with a bunch of people I didn’t know. We walked slowly, only covering 20 miles or less over the span of five days. More often than not, we didn’t summit anything, even though we always planned to. But each year, it was the best outdoors trip I took." Read @semi_rad's full piece on his experience with Big City Mountaineers in the @REI journal - link on our Facebook. •

'Be more appreciative.' A goal set by one BCM youth after expedition.
How many times has time spent outdoors made you appreciate more? #poweroftheoutdoors

‪Big City Mountaineers is on the hill today with our friends at @outdoorafro talking about the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of the outdoors for the @outdoorindustry Capitol summit.
What would you share about the #poweroftheoutdoors?

Getting outside for some means stepping out of the comfort zone. The thing is, you might realize you like it out there. Glad to see this youth found a new appreciation for nature on her BCM expedition. #poweroftheoutdoors. •

Only 3% of thru-hikers start the PCT in March and @Summer_TheHuman, supporting Big City Mountaineers through a custom Summit for Someone hike, is one of them! Give her a 🙌 if you see her.
Want to help under-resourced youth get outdoors through your own adventure? Summit for Someone! More details in the link in the bio. #getoutdogood
