BOAT

Bus For Outdoor Access & Teaching

We are so excited to have BOAT join us at Off-Grid Expo! BOAT stands for Bus for Outdoor Access & Teaching, and ‘Big Red’ as it’s called, is a great tool for kids to access the outdoors! 

BOAT exists to get more people outside. They do that by running trips and teaching classes, and provide education to the general public as well. By turning a school bus into a fully equipped outdoor program on wheels, they can reduce the 4 most-common barriers to getting outside: logistics, cost, knowledge and visibility. 

At Off-Grid Expo they’ll be holding short informational sessions on topics such as: 

  • Leave No Trace Ethics and Practices
  • Reading Topographic Maps
  • Survival Skills
  • Getting the Right Gear

BOAT President and Founder Micah Leinbach is also the Colorado State Advocate for Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, and the two organizations partner for their education missions. Bring your kids by BOAT to learn more about their programs and get great advice on preparing for your next kid-friendly camping trip. See you there!
