Ready to be an outdoor leader with BOA?

Black Outdoor Adventurers is an outdoor adventure social enterprise focused on the health and wellness of people of color in the NY Tri-state region. Our main mission is to expose black & brown people to the healing power of nature & the outdoors, enrich lives, create community, care for gaia and take part in some amazing adventures!

We believe representation matters thus we’re creating a welcoming and encouraging environment that allows people to explore experiences to make you glow (and grow).

We lead a community crazy enough to live out our lives with purpose, chase after our wildest dreams and seek dope adventures. Our goal is to inspire both the average outdoor enthusiast and novice to unlock their life’s greatest adventure. We curate thoughtful outdoor adventures and wellness experiences to connect people to nature in a fun, educational and open environment.  We believe in being our authentic selves and if others take notice…great! Either way we are changing the history, present and generational future of black and brown people outdoors one adventure at a time.
