About the Program
The Maybin Mission S2P (Streets to Peaks) program at Camp Grier provides year-round outdoor opportunities like backpacking, rock climbing, whitewater canoeing, and horseback riding to youth at no cost to their families. These activities foster the next generation of conservation stewards by taking young people to spectacular natural wonders outside of their everyday lives, broadening their horizons and developing positive attributes such as leadership, perseverance, and resilience.
S2P works with students during times when they are naturally out of school such as holidays, teacher workdays, spring break, and summer break. The S2P program is committed to long-term youth engagement. Students can apply at the beginning of their sixth grade year and can remain in the program until they graduate. Once students graduate they are eligible to work as paid trip leaders for Streets to Peaks and camp counselors for our summer camp programs.
Last year Camp Grier served over 600 youth in our summer and year around programs. Over 100 of these young people received a full scholarship to attend and 50 received a partial scholarship.
Streets To Peaks was founded in 2016 by professional baseball player Cameron Maybin and his wife Courtney through their Maybin Mission Foundation. Streets to Peaks provides year around life enriching activities to young people in Asheville and Charlotte, NC.
