    Get Outdoors (GO!) Trek is an excellent introduction to Cottonwood Gulch and outdoor living. Trekkers ages 8-10 will visit our Basecamp, stay in rustic, open air cabins, and spend their days exploring, learning, and having so much fun! 

    GO! Trek invites 8-10 year olds to our Basecamp to spark a connection between them, the Gulch, and the outdoors. GO! trekkers are welcomed to experience the essential value and innate joys of discovering our place within our environment, our community and ourselves.

    GO! Trek spends every night at Basecamp as an structured introduction to living in the outdoors. Most days are spent at Basecamp, getting to know the area and exploring the acres of forests, stream beds, mesas and open fields.

    GO! Trek asks “ How do I live comfortably in the outdoors?”This trek revolves around access to an outdoor experience and gaining confidence in the basic understandings required to move through those experiences. 8-10 year old’s will spend 7 days building up the skills necessary to feel more comfortable outside and to begin to learn our shared values of outdoor living.

    GO Trek 2024 Pricing Structure: Choose Your Gift

    This year, we are incorporating a different pricing structure for GO Trek. We invite you to build inclusive community and change a life. Someone’s about to change yours. A past trekker sponsored your child’s trek this year, and now you have the opportunity to sponsor the next trekker by paying/passing the gift forward. Choose your gift according to your values and means. We have attached a form that details this process to the GO trek application. Simply fill out the application linked to the “Enroll Now” button and it will guide you to the “Choose Your Gift” form.

    Note: Your gift (formerly known as tuition cost) does not influence acceptance into our programs. Our application process is completely separate from all gift and payment processes. Trekkers are accepted into all programs based solely on their application and ability to participate fully in the Trek.
