Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) created the Generation Wild movement to connect kids and families to outdoor activities. In response to GOCO's call, the Generation Wild of the Pikes Peak Region coalition was formed to encourage kids and families in Southeast Colorado, and beyond, to spend time together outside--improving overall health, and fostering a love, appreciation and familiarity with nature and the natural beauty in the Pikes Peak Region.

Our free or significantly reduced cost programs target the children in Southeast Colorado Springs, but are open to all children throughout the Pikes Peak Region without scholarship assistance! Want to support or sponsor a program? Give us a call 719-471-0910 x109.
