Peak7 LogoPeak7 Adventures is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving youth (primarily underprivileged and at-risk). Their goal is to get youth out of their comfort zone and experience the adventurous outdoors. Experiencing the outdoors can help them learn more about themselves as well as building teamwork with their peers or cohorts. They believe that by spending time in the wilderness, taking risks and seeking solitude, they will gain more than just adventure skills that will help them succeed and handle problems.  Scholarships are available to foster care youth so that money is not a barrier to participication.
