Mount2Sound Adventures

Looking for an unforgettable summer? Mount2Sound Adventures is a summer camp is an extended stay youth camp focused on educating youth ages 12-17 through their connection with the natural world. Participants are exposed to a variety of activities and natural resource career fields: agriculture and aquaculture, aquatics, fish and wildlife, forestry, soils, education, leadership, geology, research and community service.

Mount2Sound (M2S) desires to leave a legacy of stewardship, community involvement, and a strong connection to the natural world in every participant of the program. To achieve its mission, M2S will partner with local tribes, agencies, non-profit organizations, local businesses and corporations. Diverse partnerships will bring well rounded historical, cultural and scientific perspectives to our outdoor education curriculum.

‘Getting back to nature’ is a trend among our society today throughout various age groups and M2S strives to provide the connection many young adults and families are looking for. Transformation and learning are gradual processes that involve a great deal of focus, where the overstimulation of today’s society is often distracting. Removing many of these barriers will allow participants to grow and strengthen the values and ethics learned this experience.

M2S seeks to encourage middle to high school participants from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds to engage in this experience, share and learn together. It is a core value of the program to serve participants despite their family’s financial situation. M2S intends to offer scholarships to underserved populations in hopes of never having to turn down a participant based on economic status. M2S embraces diversity and strives to foster essential leadership skills to empower participants from all walks of life to become outstanding environmental stewards in their communities.
