Inspire. Discover. Grow.
Our Mission

Through mindful engagement in inspiring outdoor experiences, education, and training, we seek to enhance the lives of children who experience anxiety and depression while disseminating evidence-informed behavioral healthcare throughout the North Lake Tahoe region.


We aim to increase access, reduce stigma, and establish a positive foundation for our community’s future mental health. 



At The Courage Project, children learn and apply state-of-the-art emotional coping skills while engaging in mountain activities.  

You can access our first-of-its-kind Outdoor Resilience Curriculum by attending one of three programs: 

Mindfulness Mini-Camps

Winter Day Camps

School & Team-Based Outdoor Resilience Programs


Our expert staff introduce activities thoughtfully and compassionately to meet the unique needs of children who experience anxiety and depression,  giving them access to previously inaccessible experiences.  


Please see our schedule of upcoming adventures to book an activity.


We are a fully volunteer run and donation supported organization. That means 100% of  your donation goes directly to helping kids.

Anxiety and Depression limit children from seeing all that they are capable of achieving.  

We're here to change that.  By compassionately and thoughtfully introducing children to inspiring mountain adventures in world-class Lake Tahoe, the Courage Project provides children with

experiences that challenge their expectations regarding their capabilities.  Our goal is to help

children with anxiety and depression believe in their ability to live their lives to the fullest.  

With the help of incredible volunteers and a team of amazing athletes,

the Courage Project is making a difference in the lives of

children and families, one adventure at a time.
