The Adventure Starts Here
Welcome to Melanin Base Camp: your home base for diversity in outdoor adventure sports. Our purpose is to inspire you with weekly content from Black, Brown, Asian, Indigenous and Queer POC adventure athletes, environmentalists and advocates. Join the movement and help us #diversifyoutdoors.
