FD Tributaries | Local Adventure Communities

Keeping with the theme of rivers, FD has dubbed our local chapters Tributaries. First Descents Tributaries offer local adventures and community support for young adults impacted by cancer.

Currently, we offer local programming in 16 cities across the country ranging from single day rock climbing outings to multi-day river trips, backpacking adventures, and more. As FDtribs are intended to connect our growing alumni base and young adults impacted by cancer in the places they call home, these experiences are open to anyone living within a three hour drive of the city.

Not a Trib in your area? Contact the Tribs team and we’ll brainstorm ways to connect you with your local FD crew!
