Celebrating 25 Years

Wilderness Youth Project Turns 25 This Year!

Wilderness Youth Project's Epic Journey

Once upon a time in 1997, Warren and Cyndi took teens from Transition House on a kayaking adventure that turned into an epic journey into the Wilderness Youth Project we know and love today, connecting 1,200+ kids each year to nature.  

What did Warren and Cyndi notice that day?

They noticed that young people feel alive in nature and that they thrive with positive mentors. 

They noticed that spending an average of 7.5 hours a day with screens wasn’t helping young people grow smarter, healthier, happier, or more likely to care for the Earth.

WYP Turns 25 This Year!

For 25 years, the Santa Barbara community has welcomed Wilderness Youth Project by sharing the land, your children, your volunteer hours, and your donations.

In 2024 we’ll celebrate with gratitude and set the stage for another 25 years of service to our community.
