About Us

BCM logo round no 30


At Big City Mountaineers, we bring the transformative power of time spent in nature to a generation of young people who face increased barriers to outdoor access, as well as other systemic challenges in their lives.  A BCM experience helps youth better connect with themselves, with nature, with their community, and with a sense of joy.  By providing free, fully outfitted, and professionally led outdoor and backcountry trips, we’re able to give youth ages 12 to 18 the opportunity to strengthen their skills, their mental and physical health, their social-emotional well being, and help them become better stewards of our planet.

We engage young people in six metropolitan regions across the country, including:

Birmingham, AL | Boston MA | Minneapolis MN | Denver CO | San Francisco Bay Area, CA | Seattle WA
