Now imagine that you're a kid who doesn't even know those things exist -- doesn't even know they're possible. You've never stepped foot on a single patch of New York City's 578 miles of coastline. You never knew there were 10 National Parks in New York City and northern New Jersey, and 8 state parks in New York City alone. You never knew you lived just a few miles from wetlands, grasslands, nature preserves, and bird sanctuaries
Kids of Kathmandu and Discover Outdoors are excited about our fundraising trek to Everest Base Camp. Our two organizations have combined resources to offer a unique two week experience in Nepal.

Discover Outdoors has established themselves by leading some of the most unforgettable adventures around the world.
Having never hiked with a group, I had no idea what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. We all went around, said our names, where we were from, and our best experience outdoors. Everyone had something unique to share, whether it was about hiking the Inca Trail in Peru or Grand Teton National Park. I could tell right away that I'd be spending the day with like-minded people, and this excited me.
