GOAT is a group of passionate people on a mission to help under-resourced kids achieve their full potential.

Our team meets kids in these circumstances and equips them with Biblical, foundational life lessons through outdoor adventure trips. Our activities create opportunities for mentorship, teaching, and friendship that lead to growth and change.

Each year we provide free outdoor trips, indoor rock climbing and mentoring for over 1,000 kids from partner organizations. These trips are a backdrop to teach character skills, leadership development and Biblical lessons to kids from all over South Carolina.

Sponsor a kid

Over 90% of these kids pay nothing to come on adventures with us. We are funded by generous people who believe in our mission, as well as our indoor rock climbing facility. GOAT would never exist without our generous donors.
