YMCA BOLD and GOLD

YMCA BOLD and GOLD is a summer experiences partner and provides a seven-day experience that takes small groups of high school students into the great outdoors without technology to discover what it means to truly connect. And through these connections, participants learn how to be great leaders.

At BOLD & GOLD, the goal is to find the right experience for every participant that’s one part fun and one part learning — a way for them to stretch and learn new things. Whether you're joining them for the first time or you’ve been part of the BOLD & GOLD family for years, there’s an adventure awaiting.
