Mission Statement

Sierra Club Inspiring Connections Outdoors is a community outreach program that provides opportunities for urban youth and adults to explore, enjoy, and protect the natural world. Children who run, swim, climb, and paddle are not only more fit physically, but are more likely to grow into adults who are respectful stewards of nature. Fostering teamwork and cooperation are major aspects of the Inspiring Connections Outdoors experience. Participants naturally develop interpersonal skills and self esteem through their outdoor experiences with positive adult role models.

Description

Madison Inspiring Connections Outdoors (ICO) is an outreach group of the Sierra Club that partners with community agencies to offer camping, hiking, and other outdoor activities to Madison-area youth that might not otherwise have these opportunities. The Sierra Club has about 50 ICO groups in 35 states, and this is the first and only ICO group in Wisconsin. Our current partners are Kennedy Heights Community Center, East Madison Community Center, and the Lussier Center. We are pleased and honored to work with these valuable community organizations.
