Sierra Nevada Journeys works in partnership with Summer Search, a San Francisco-based mentorship organization, to take first generation, college-bound students on a two-week outdoor excursion. after completing their sophomore year of high school Summer Search participants have the opportunity to challenge their abilities and apply for the wilderness trip of a lifetime.

Sierra Nevada Journeys’ guided wilderness experience takes part in a wide range of land, water and adventure activities that can include: preparing and planning for backcountry travel and living; use and care of tents and other backcountry gear; backcountry cooking; low impact camping; swimming; rock climbing; whitewater rafting; forest ecology; orienteering; team-building challenges and more.
