Trip Accessibility Statement

Our trips are open to youth ages 13-17 of all colors, faiths, income, genders, orientations, and experience levels.

At Rising Appalachia, we believe that everyone should have equal access to participation in our trips. No one should be unable to join due to a lack of funds, experience, or access to gear. For all of our trips we provide the following: tents, sleeping pads, backpacks, stoves and cook-wear. If your child is in need of additional gear, we can help you obtain it.

Additionally, scholarships are available for all trips.

Please reach out to if you would like to inquire about scholarships, gear or have any other questions.

A note on our updated COVID trip policies. All participants will be required to provide proof of full vaccination OR a negative PCR test 3 days prior to the start date of the trip. We do this as we travel in order to keep communities and individuals as safe as possible. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
