Our multi-day programs are the quintessential First Descents experience. The goal of FDtribs is to sustain that support throughout the year; to continually embody the culture and energy of FD. FDtribs will be the headwaters for continued passion and vitality for the FD experience and serve as an introductionto FD for those young adults who haven’t yet attended a program. Our goal is for FDtribs to grow and strengthen our already amazing community.

Trib events happen quarterly in all 10 Trib locations; these events range from half-day workshops to multi-day adventures. Not a Trib in your area? If you’ve attended a week-long FD1 and/or FDX program and you live greater than 100 miles from one of our current Trib locations, the FDtributaries Scholarship is an option.
