When you live between the Taconic and the Green Mountains, you need to be able to get out and stretch your legs every once in a while. Or maybe always. Enter Green Mountain Adventure Programming (GreenMAP).
GreenMAP is your passageway to adventure and outdoor education in the GMC community. We believe in recreational access for everyone, and towards that goal we provide super-low cost equipment rentals, recreational and instructional adventure programs and the Wilderness Orientation program for our students.
The Function of Leadership is to Produce More Leaders
At the heart of the GreenMAP program are our Trip Leaders. This is a leadership commitment open to all students, and combines skill-building in structured experience development, activity-specific training, wilderness medicine, mentoring, reflection, and evaluation–all within the spirit of adventure. These qualities enrich the programs that GreenMAP provides, which is probably the reason why GMC graduates often cite their GreenMAP adventures as some of their most rewarding memories of life at GMC.
GreenMAP offers a wide variety of volunteer-led trips, ranging from single day introduction courses to week long adventures. Trips are FREE, student led outings open to the entire Green Mountain College community.

The purpose of the fund is to further Kellen’s legacy by providing outdoor-based professional development opportunities for GreenMAP Leaders.
