About Vibe Tribe Adventures Black 14er Education and Adventure Program
Black 14er are education clinics and adventures that teaches blacks the survival and technical skills they need for outdoor adventuring to summit 14ers mountains.
Black 14er programs include: Day Hikes, Overnight Camps, and Summit Adventures.
These skills can be applied in any season or region and include first aid, navigation, leave no trace, 10 essentials, shelter building and more. Our events and adventures encourage members to learn new skills, take on challenges, and think creatively which develops perseverance and fosters confidence while preparing for difficult tasks
Our goal is to see communities of color learning, having fun, and connecting in an encouraging environment with amazing instruction and support from expert mentors. We want Black 14ers to be an experience they will remember, one that will spark a lifetime of passion for the outdoors and will remind them that they are capable of anything.
