Supporting BOLT

There are many ways to support BOLT as a program alumnus, parent, or friend.

Gear Donation

Often, BOLTers and leaders will need to borrow clothing or personal from the program. You can help to grow our supply of gear by donating extra outdoor items to BOLT.

The items most requested by participants and leaders include Nalgenes, non-cotton long underwear, fleece shirts and jackets, fleece/wool hats and gloves, headlamps, non-cotton shirts and pants and hiking socks.

Please contact the BOLT managers at if you would like to drop something off in person or we'd love to receive a package of gently worn gear that we can share.

Host an Alumni Event
