Orange County Inner City Outings

About ICO

Sierra Club Inner City Outings (ICO) is a community outreach program providing opportunities for urban youth and adults to explore, enjoy and protect the natural world. We work with schools, community groups, and other agencies to create safe and enjoyable outdoor experiences for persons who might not otherwise have them. ICO outings promote individual growth through group activities and environmental and outdoor skills education.


You can also learn about the Sierra Club ICO program at other ICO websites:

Why do we do this?

ICO volunteers believe that the wilderness exists as a resource for everyone and that all people should have access to it. With the guidance of ICO volunteers, participants discover the beauty of wild lands and how to enjoy these areas without harming them. Young people learn valuable survival skills and strengthen their abilities to face challenges, both inside and outside their urban environments. Through active involvement with nature, the ICO program increases participant's environmental awareness. Interpersonal skills and self esteem develop as a natural result of teamwork and an active relationship with the outdoors.
