Point Bonita Event

The Nature Project + YMCA

June 19, 2018

We are excited to announce that we will be holding another event in partnership with the YMCA at the Point Bonita camp located just across the bay from San Francisco in the Golden Gate Recreation Area. This event will involve an inspiring group of NFL players from the Oakland Raiders who will have the opportunity to experience an awesome event with 50 lucky kids.

On March 28 we had our second event of 2018. The Nature Project co-founder Cooper Helfet, and his teammates from the Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks, joined TNP and a group of 80 YMCA kids for a day in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, just north of San Francisco, California.

The Nature Project and YMCASF are teaming up to bring together 20 elementary school students together with TNP Co-Founder, Cooper Helfet and Kelechi Osemele, a pro-bowl guard for the Oakland Raiders at Crissy Field in San Francisco.

In support of the YMCA’s Outdoor Youth Leadership program, Bold and Gold, The Nature Project will pair a group of our mentors with some of the most exceptional and deserving young people during a pair of 1 week long backpacking trips.

This April, The Nature Project and IslandWood are teaming up to bring together world-class athletes with Seattle-area 4th graders for four days of learning, discovery, and team-building in nature. #TeamNature Week will officially launch The Nature Project—a collective of professional athletes and community leaders committed to facilitating outdoor learning and exploration opportunities for underserved youth. Throughout the week, IslandWood educators will partner with Nature Project Mentors to co-facilitate experiences to develop students’ team building, interpersonal, and environmental literacy skills.
