Challenge Yourself to Change a Young Life

Backpacker Magazine

We’re excited to partner with Backpacker Magazine again this year to offer 3 exciting new trips in Colorado. This is your chance to rub elbows with BCM staff & the editors of your favorite magazine out on the trail, and even  hang out at the magazine headquarters for an evening!

New this year: Backpacker Magazine will host an after party at their headquarters in Boulder, Colorado to thank all the participants and sponsors, and give you a chance to network with outdoor industry companies in the area. Don’t miss it!


Join us and make a difference in the lives of under-resourced urban youth. In the words of Kaden, a 2015 participant:

“I am grateful beyond words for this opportunity and life-changing experience. I hope that many more people can go on this adventure.”


Every year, hundreds of Summit for Someone climbers join together to ascend some of the world’s most breathtaking mountains to improve the lives of under-resourced, urban youth. The vital funding that is raised through Summit for Someone makes it possible for Big City Mountaineers to deliver transformational wilderness mentoring expeditions to thousands of urban youth across the country in need of positive adult guidance in challenging and restorative environments.
