Rooted in Northern California, among aged sequoia trees and the towering cliffs of El Capitan, Lasting Adventures is born and bred in the wilderness of Yosemite. This non-profit is on a mission to serve youth in the outdoors, providing backpacking trips, day hikes, and outdoor summer camps.
Founder Scott Gehrman developed an appreciation for Yosemite National Park at a young age when his bond with the park helped him recover after losing his mother to cancer. This passion grew into an inevitable calling to combine both his love for the outdoors and for youth development in order to establish Lasting Adventures in 1997.
Yosemite is much more than a National Park to Lasting Adventures. It is an emblem of love, education, and perseverance. It is an opportunity to show youth and the general public the positive impact the natural environment and backcountry wilderness can have on humans.
With an exceptional staff, devoted executive team, and strong mission, Lasting Adventures has served over 5,000 kids and provided 1,500 scholarships to disadvantaged youth, allowing them to gain valuable skills and real life experiences.
Lasting Adventures’ mission is to provide positive youth development and educational opportunities to the general public while also providing charitable assistance to otherwise disadvantaged youth. The Clymb is proud to partner with such a force for good in the outdoor space.
