YMCA OF METROPOLITAN ATLANTA IS EXCITED TO OFFFER BOLD & GOLD IN THE SUMMER OF 2022

Explore, learn, and grow in the North Georgia Mountains!

Our instructors will guide and facilitate lessons in wilderness skills and leadership development, and foster personal growth. As well as, how those values can be transferred home and into their communities and future endeavors. Along the way, students make lifelong friends and explore the natural wonders of North Georgia.

Through the YMCA of Atlanta’s BOLD & GOLD Program teens spend 5-7 days backpacking, developing outdoor and leadership skills, all while exploring the second oldest mountain range in the world, the Blue Ridge.

We journey through some of the most beautiful parts of the country enjoying the southern sunshine inspiring growth, friendship, leadership development, and a passion for enjoying the pristine and natural beauty of this country.
