OUR PROJECTS

We are inspired to honor the legacy for the life of Keaton Guthrie-Goss who died in 2018 on a surfing adventure in California. Keaton lived life to the fullest, and encouraged others to do the same. We would love for you to join us in honoring Keaton by supporting organizations and projects that provide underserved kids with transformational outdoor adventures and experiences in nature. 

We are looking forward to lots of programming in 2024!

Up Next 

2024 SNOWBOARDING WITH SHRED!

Starting in January 2024, we'll be partnering with the Shred Foundation to take kids out on the slopes again for 6 Sunday snowboarding sessions. Having 6 sessions will really allow the kids to progress in a sport that can otherwise be cost prohibitive and encourage them to keep going and experiencing nature. Last year, we even had kids who completed our snowboarding program return to Keaton's Kids for the Great Skate Giveaway! We can't wait for this year's program, see you on the slopes! 

Highlights

FALL CYCLING LESSONS 2023

In October, we partnered with CatRock Ventures to offer a series of 3 cycling lessons to 4th and 5th graders. The lessons culminated in rides at Van Cortlandt Park, where the students could show off their new cycling skills!  These adventures highlight importance of continuous programming, which allows kids the chance to develop skills and progress in new outdoor sports!

KEATON'S KIDS CAMP 2023

This year, we partnered with Peeksill’s New Era Creative Space (NECS) to offer another summer of Keaton’s Kids camp! Kids had swimming lessons and learned about water safety.

GREAT SKATE GIVEAWAY 2023

This year, the Great Skate Giveaway was postponed due to the extreme weather we faced this summer. But nothing can stop the Great Skate Giveaway, and with Keep it Moving Zane and Hacienda Skate Shop, we adapted to make sure that we still provided 75 skateboards and helmets to 75 kids in Newburgh!

BOUNDLESS ADVENTURE 2023

We partnered with NECS to take their Girl’s Empowerment group to Boundless Adventure High Ropes course, just like we did in 2022! It was an awesome time to encourage girls to get out of their comfort zone.

SPRING 2023 TREK ACADEMY GRADUATION

This Spring, we had the privilege to watch some of the kids we've supported through CatRock Ventures' cycling academy. These CatRock members have completed the Trek program to learn how to be bike technicians! Keaton's Kids was instrumental in getting CatRock's Biking Academy up and running. We're proud of these young people who have gone through the program and will know everything there is to know about bikes, and a way to earn extra money no matter what life throws their way.

WINTER 2023 SNOWBOARDING TRIP WITH SHRED!

In March 2023, we partnered with Shred Foundation to take almost 50 kids on 4 snowboarding outings to Wyndham Mountain! The kids were all recruited from The Boys and Girls Club in Newburgh, NY. The Shred Foundation, an organization we love, organized the trip, Wyndham Mountain contributed lift tickets and amazing instructors, and Keaton's Kids brought the kids to the mountain by paying for the huge buses they needed to bring all the kids up. What we loved most was hearing what how the kids felt about the trip and what snowboarding meant to them: "freedom."
