In celebration of our 20th anniversary, please consider a $20 donation to support First Descents and extend the healing power of adventure to young adults impacted by cancer and other serious health conditions.
At First Descents (FD), we pride ourselves on the ability to adapt to a wide range different physical abilities and backgrounds. We also strive to create the safest and most healing environment possible for all FD Participants.
Some FD programs are physically taxing. Travel, time outside, physical and mental activity, as well as prolonged exposure to outdoor elements is often required. FD’s Participant eligibility criteria for all MS programs, regardless of activity, is outlined below. To ensure a safe and enjoyable program, please ensure that you meet the following criteria before moving forward with any portion of the application.
