It takes a village

The Mountain Youth Summer Programs are designed to work in partnership with educational institutions, community-based organizations, parents, and the biking, climbing, and backcountry communities in Revelstoke.

It connects the natural strengths present in the Revelstoke “village” in order to create leadership and self-empowering learning for youth based in our local mountain environment.

Open Mountains Project Selection Policy

Open Mountains Project reserves 50% of the spots in all of its programs for youth who are referred by local community services, teachers, and other youth workers. We aim to create an inclusive mountain culture, one camp at a time! The remaining 50% of our spots are first come, first serve.

If you have any questions about Open Mountains Project selection process, please reach out to Thank-you!

Open Mountains Project Generosity Policy

There is a suggested fee for courses, in efforts to acknowledge the incredible work required for guides and support staff to make these programs possible; and, to match the generous contributions made by local businesses. If for family financial reasons you are unable to contribute, we will make arrangements on a pay-what-you-can basis. Balancing financial sustainability with barrier-free access to the mountains is our priority.
