Stuck Inside: Youth Edition, Episode 6 - Coloring Contest!

Welcome back! Each week, The Mountaineers youth team is sharing ideas and activities for kids of all ages to stay engaged while also staying home and safe. Last week's Stuck Inside celebrated Earth Day. This week, we are opening the Explorer Art Contest!

The Explorer Art Contest


Through a piece of art, answer the question "What is your favorite thing to do outside?" Whether a drawing, painting, or collage, show The Mountaineers what outdoor adventure you love the most!

About Youth Programs

The Mountaineers is committed to bringing outdoor experiences to today's youth through our outdoor youth and family programs. We introduce young people to the benefits of outdoor experiences: a healthy lifestyle, outdoor recreation skills, perseverance, self-confidence, self-reliance, an appreciation for the natural world, and a commitment to protecting outdoor spaces. We can't wait to see the places you are most excited to explore and the activities you can't wait to do!

The Mountaineers youth team has so many favorite outdoor activities. If we had to choose a favorite season for outdoor fun, it would have to be summer. Hiking, rock climbing, rafting, kayaking, camping, backpacking. There is so much fun to be had when the days are long! Summer camps are in full swing, mountain workshops are run almost every day, and clubs are going on many adventures. Learn more about the programs we offer.
