Commitment to Equitable Access to the Outdoors
We believe that the outdoors is for everyone, but there have been countless barriers that have made it feel inaccessible, unsafe and expensive. We also recognize the particular challenges faced by queer people with intersectional identities who experience additional adversity.
We hope that by offering these scholarships we will diminish the financial burden to attend our courses, giving folks the opportunity to learn new skills or deepen the knowledge they have already acquired.
We offer full and half scholarships available to folks who identify within the LGBTQIA2S+ community. Our focus is to particularly lift up members of the BIPOC and Trans communities as well as all other queer identities.
- Be 18 years or older (We will be offering youth programs in the near future with a separate scholarship application)
- Self identify as a member of the LGBTQIA2S+ Community
- Be able to travel to and from Smith Rock State Park
- An eagerness to learn and have fun!
