Social Mission
The Youth Outdoor Recreation Society is a local not-for-profit that subsidizes youth programming in our local community. Y.O.R.S. aims to work with local businesses, residents, and the schools to make outdoor recreation and education accessible financially to all students in the Okanagan-Skaha School District. Through kayaking, rock climbing, hiking, biking, and camping skills, children learn incredible hard skills and develop life-changing soft skills, and every child deserves that chance.
