Why it matters:
changing the narrative.


  • Because outdoor programs bring great benefit to society but are often perceived as high risk.
  • Because outdoor programs are considered  “just for fun,” or a “luxury” as opposed to recognized to their full value.
  • Because outdoor programs are chronically under-funded and under-supported.
  • Because insurance premiums are disproportionately high.
  • Because accepted practices are not widely embraced and can lead to unnecessary accidents and tragedies.
  • Because our community often operates “in silos”.

For these reasons and many more, we must come together. The national outdoor community is an essential agent of this change. Together, we can increase clientele, funding, and support for outdoor programs — in other words, “rise tide that would float all boats.”

We are inviting you to excitedly co-create the Summit.

Change is afoot.
