We will be taking our High School girls into the mountains to stay in a primitive cabin (no electric, no running water). We will be living the simple life for one night, spending time around the campfire, hiking, playing games, and feeding goats : ) The next day we will be joining the rest of UMA for a rappelling trip.
We are getting pumped, crunching the numbers, and determining what we need for this upcoming year -- gear wise. So far, our rough lists includes:
- A raft trailer that holds 2-4 rafts
- An additional gear shed to house our new trailer and additional gear
- 15 additional river helmets
- 15 life jackets
- 11 additional climbing helmets
- 10 additional climbing harnesses
- 2 Big coolers
- Go-Pro or Camera with video capabilities
- 15 Internal frame backpacks (10 adult 50-60L and 5 Kids 30-40L)
We are looking for matching donors. If you or your company might be interested, please contact us!
We would love your prayers for this trip! We will be taking our Middle Schoolers to YDI for a long weekend over their fall break.
Also, if you'd be interested in providing food for the trip, that would be awesome. Our kids love homemade foods, etc. Please contact Marissa@urbanmountainadventures.org. Thank you!
It's going to be crazy! Our girls are full of energy and sometimes anxiety being out of their comfort zones and in the middle of the woods. A couple of the things that we have found to be really useful on these trips are glow sticks and bedtime stories. Please pray for wisdom, patience, and energy for our leaders and opportunities to build deeper relationships and overcome fears for our girls.
We will be at Liberty University on September 8th from 10am-3:30 pm. The fair will be in the Alumni Ballroom in the Montview Student Union. Swing by if you are interested!
We are looking for volunteers to work with our mentoring groups, photographers, videographers.
We also offer opportunities for internships. Contact us if you are interested and propose what you can do for us!
