Outdoor focused youth organizations looking to help their members embark on outdoor adventure for the first time can apply for an Outdoor Experience Grant from Confident Camper Foundation, Inc to help cover their costs.
The “Wilderness First” grant will be awarded to a youth organization that is helping its members to embark on a rustic (non-cabin) camping trip for the first time. The recipient will be able to use this grant to purchase equipment such as tents and camping stoves that their group will need.
The “Wilderness Expanded” grant will be awarded to a youth organization that is helping its members embark on a high adventure outdoor focused trip for the first time. The recipient organization will be able to use this grant to pay for trip related expenses such as transportation, lodging, meals, registration fees, etc.
To apply, download and complete an application and submit it by either U.S. mail or email. Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis, but we do recommend applying three to six months prior to your planned trip.
