Streets to Peaks
Streets to Peaks provides enriching outdoor experiences to youth with limited access to wilderness adventures. Through exciting challenges like rock climbing and whitewater paddling, program participants ages 11-18 learn to overcome obstacles, set long term goals and imagine a future with endless possibilities. Originally formed in Asheville, NC in 2016, Streets to Peaks began through the vision and funding of Cameron and Courtney Maybin and their Maybin Mission. First Presbyterian Church of Charlotte partners with Camp Grier each year to recruit and fund campers from Mecklenburg County.
Students are accepted into the Streets to Peaks program at the beginning of their sixth grade year and have the opportunity to continue through their senior year of high school.
