Walkabout Outfitter is proud to partner with organizations across Virginia to serve our community. Here are a few organizations that we have formed alliances with in the past:
Boy Scouts of America Stonewall Jackson Area Council - The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations, providing programs for young people that build character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship and develops personal fitness. The Boy Scouts of America Stonewall Jackson Area Council serves over 7,000 Scouts and Scouters in thirteen counties and seven cities in Virginia and West Virginia. Owner and Eagle Scout Kirk Miller volunteers with Tina and Kirk's pack.
Friends of the Chessie Trail - The Friends of the Chessie Trail is a network of groups and individuals interested in maintaining and promoting the health of the Trail and its surroundings. The Trail was created on land deeded to the Nature Conservancy by the C&O Railroad in 1978. Much of it lies along the old rail bed of the C&O between Lexington and Buena Vista.
Good Samaritan Hospice - Good Sam's mission is to affirm life in the midst of illness and grief by providing quality patient care, family support, community education, and counseling services through an interdisciplinary team of caregiving professionals and trained volunteers. Walkabout Outfitter is proud to sponsor the annual Hike for Hospice and has led group hikes at past events.
MEDIC SOLO Disaster + Wilderness Medical School - The MEDIC SOLO wilderness medical courses (choose 2 or 9 days) are a blended experience of classroom and hands-on learning. ~50% of student time is spent rotating as mock rescuer and mock patient in realistic care-giving scenarios, making the most of learning-by-doing. Walkabout Outfitter and MEDIC SOLO have hosted several courses and donated proceeds from the courses to local charities near the courses.
Roanoke Appalachian Trail Club - Roanoke Appalachian Trail Club volunteers explore, maintain and protect more than 120 miles of the Appalachian Trail - the nation’s premier, continuous, long-distance footpath - in Virginia.
