During the summer, and some weekends during the fall and winter, the Y @ Cascade People’s Center is used as a staging site for a YMCA Outdoor Leadership program.  The BOLD (Boys Outdoor Leadership Development) and GOLD (Girls Outdoor Leadership Development) programs supply over 700+ youth with the gear and supplies necessary to go on backpacking, rock climbing, fishing, yoga and art  expeditions.  Youth are accompanied by experienced instructors and learn multicultural leaderships skills that are not only pertinent in the wilderness, but in life!
