Community Service

We support the following organizations through the donations of trips:

High Country Mommies

Their mission is to provide a safe, secure, FREE place for mothers to find support and encouragement from other mothers and to empower them to be better women, parents and community leaders.

Mountain Alliance

Mountain Alliance is a community of individuals committed to providing Watauga County high school aged youth with opportunities to explore and develop their leadership potential through experiential learning. They work closely with  Watauga High School to connect students with a support structure and caring community during their most formative years and to provide positive opportunities outside of school.

Appalachian Geological Society

Founded in 1931 for the express purpose of promoting the science of geology, this student run organization is the bedrock of the App geological department.

Valle Crucis Park

The park serves not only as a community gathering place for local residents, it also acts as a land trust for Valle Crucis. For over twenty years, the park has served as a natural refuge – a green space preserved in perpetuity that contributes to the scenic beauty and ecological health of Valle Crucis.

Banff Film Festival – ASU Outdoor Programs

Watauga County Big Sweep

Held in September of every year, the Big Sweep involves volunteers cleaning up the Watauga River for a day.

Triple Crown Bouldering Competition

Their mission is to raise funds for two organizations dedicated to maintaining climbers’ access: the Southeastern Climbers’ Coalition and The Carolina Climbers’ Coalition. These two organizations have been instrumental in the acquisition of land for the climbing community, in a region that is riddled with access issues. Secondly, this unique event will once again provide a tremendous opportunity for vendors to promote the sport of bouldering, which has quickly become the focus of the ever growing climbing community.

Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts

Please contact us if you have any ideas. We will work with you to make it happen!
