Our week-long FD1 programs are the original First Descents experience. The purpose of FDtribs is to continually embrace this sense of adventure and community; to sustain the spirit and energy of FD. FDtribs are the headwaters for continued passion and vitality for the FD experience and serve as an introduction to FD for those young adults who haven’t yet attended a FD1 program. The goal of FDtribs is to grow and strengthen the young adult cancer community.
FD-supported Trib events range from evening indoor rock climbing meet-ups to multi-day backcountry adventures. Not a Trib in your area? The FDtributaries Scholarship is intended to make FDtrib events and connections possible for those young adults impacted by cancer who do not live near one of the 15 Trib locations OR for existing Trib locations that want more Out Living It opportunities.
