Hop Outside partners with Baltimore Inspiring Connections Outdoors, a local chapter of the Sierra Club, to help lead cost free trips for inner city Baltimore City students. Members lead middle school and high school students on day-long or overnight hiking, canoeing, climbing, and biking trips. Outdoor activities can be prohibitively expensive for many students who may not have the money or access to resources, particularly in Baltimore where the economic disparity is a serious issue. These trips provide opportunities for students to experience the outdoors and yield the benefits this can have on individualsÔÇÖ mental and physical health. They are also educational opportunities that emphasize enjoying the outdoors in a way that minimizes human impact to foster environmentally-conscientious young adults.
