Climbing for Kids is a fundraising program of Bay Area Wilderness Training. Through Backpacking for Kids, you raise funds, we give you gear donated by our generous sponsors, then you hit the trail for an exciting experience in the mountains. The money raised goes to training and supplying gear to youth workers to help them get youth outdoors – most of them for the first time! So, grab a backpack and hit the trail with Climbing for Kids!

Through its hard work, more than 25,000 youth have been afforded the opportunity to get outside and experience the outdoors firsthand. BAWT has grown to serve kids in the East Bay from its headquarters in Oakland, in San Francisco and the peninsula at the Presidio through the Camping at the Presidio (CAP) Program, and the entire South Bay region from its office in Milpitas. Bay Area Wilderness Training (BAWT) is a non-profit that relies on donors and adventure fundraising programs like Climbing for Kids and our other adventure fundraising program Backpacking for Kids.
