Chicago Inspiring Connections Outdoors (formerly Inner City Outings) is part of the National Inspiring Connections Outdoors (ICO), an outreach program of the Sierra Club. ICO offers hiking, camping and boating outings, environmental service projects and other outdoor adventures to young people who might not otherwise have access to these experiences.

Volunteers must be 18+, submit an application and perform a background check before joining us on any outings. This is required because we work with youth groups from around Chicago.

We're 63 Volunteers
