  • Group Project - Sleeping Bag Wash

    We are seeking a group - company, organization, club, etc - to help us with a one-time half-day project.

    About Bay Area Wilderness Trainig (BAWT):

    Our mission is to create opportunities for youth in the San Francisco Bay Area to experience wilderness first hand. To achieve our mission, we train teachers and youth workers, provide free outdoor gear loans, give financial support, and foster community collaboration.

    Since 1999, we have reached more than 33,000 youth and continue to expand our impact. In 2013 alone, our programs touched the lives of more than 7,200 under-served and under-represented youth by empowering teachers and youth workers with the training, confidence, equipment, and tools to bring their groups into the outdoors and provide enriched learning experiences.

    This means that we have a lot of sleeping bags - over 350 in our Oakland Gear Library alone! Doing a sleeping bag wash with BAWT is a great way to build group identity and relationships for companies, divisions, and other non-profits. We can accomodate groups between about 5-15 individuals. Dates for this opportunity are flexible, but we need these bags washed and ready before our Spring camping season picks up in late February. We have an office and warehouse from which we will transport the sleeping bags 3.5 blocks down the street to a laundromat.

    Did you know? Washing sleeping bags periodically is not only necessary for good hygeine, it increases the loft and warmth of the bag. Contact us to setup a sleeping bag wash and help get youth outdoors.

    For more information about BAWT, visit, or email us at
