Summit For Someone Presidential Range Traverse

Northern Traverse Topo

Our Presidential Range Traverse with the Big City Mountaineers Summit for Someone Program starts on July 5th!

For 2019, we are excited to announce that we’ve partnered with the Big City Mountaineers Summit for Someone Program. Our commitment is a fundraiser ‘expedition’ to support under-resourced youth. Monies raised on this trip will support youth on wilderness trips nationwide.

Our trip this year is a Presidential Range Traverse over 3 days in early July. We will hike and scramble the ridge while staying in the beautiful AMC huts along the way. Light packs, great views, alpine terrain and common good shared.

Why this trip stands out:

  • There is no guide fee for participants to cover
  • There is a fundraising component, which goes to supporting the wilderness mentoring experiences BCM provides for under-resourced youth
  • BCM partners with youth development agencies in the NE (such as Squashbusters in Boston), benefitting youth who are relatively local to this trip
  • You are joining a team of 8 people who all love the outdoors and are eager to make similarly transformative experiences available for young people who might not otherwise have the opportunity

July 5-7, 24 miles, 10’000 feet of elevation gain, light packs! 2 nights, 3 days, memories for a lifetime!
