The Base Camp Bash is an annual event to benefit Streets to Peaks. Streets to Peaks – a Maybin Mission program powered by Camp Grier – provides year around outdoor experiences and a week of summer camp to youth with limited access to wilderness adventures. Through exciting challenges like rock climbing, whitewater paddling, and mountain biking 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.
Additional support for Streets to Peaks comes from The Mountain Sports Festival. Proceeds from the Base Camp Bash and the 2018 Mountain Sports Festival will be used to send graduating students to Colorado for their final peak experience in the summer of 2019!
