…HAPPY AND CONFIDENT!
Half of all girls who participate in some kind of sport experience have higher than average levels of self-esteem and less depression.
–Ms. Foundation for Women
Our mission is to inspire confidence, well-being and community in girls through action sports, outdoor adventure, and life skill education. We encourage our girls to be courageous and healthy, and to always believe in themselves. Sports like mountain biking and rock climbing are the perfect inspiration, as they create just the right balance of challenge and exhilaration. We think it’s time to see more ladies—of all shapes, sizes and abilities—building strength and self-confidence while rippin’ it up on water, snow, trail or rock!
Betties360 offers day trips and 10-session after school programs in windsurfing, rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking and back-country snowshoeing. Check out our Calendar page for this year’s upcoming events!

Longtime Betties volunteer, Lara Scudder, ran the Portland Half Marathon as a charity runner and we’re honored that she selected Betties360 as her beneficiary. We recently caught up with her to learn what inspired her to take on the challenge – read her interview here.
The Betties recently took a group of girls to new heights! We spent the day rock climbing at the Mazama Center in SE Portland! Check out the fun and our pictures here.
