FD Tributaries | Local Adventure Communities

Keeping with the theme of rivers, FD has dubbed our local adventure communities  “Tributaries” or “FDTribs” for short. FDTribs offer programs, events, and peer to peer community support for young adults impacted by cancer and other serious health conditions. FDTribs are intended to connect our growing community in the places they call home and closer to their point of diagnosis.

Currently, we have 18 FDTribs in select cities across the country that offer Single and Multi-Day Programs, Monthly Meetups, and a host of events. Programs range from day-long rock climbing outings to multi-day river trips, backpacking adventures, and more. We ask that folks please only join one FDTrib to ensure we are making space for everyone. If you’d like to change your FDTrib please email [email protected]

First Descents is looking for Monthly Leads to serve as local leaders in their community! The Monthly Lead will be responsible for planning and leading Monthly Meetups for their specific FDTrib community and inspiring others to embrace an Out Living It lifestyle of their own. Learn more about becoming a Monthly Lead.
