About Outdoor Youth Connections

Our passion is connecting youth with outdoor adventures. We provide opportunities and means to experience recreational, educational and stewardship activities in the natural outdoors.


Our Inspiration

OYC was founded in honor of Larry Ingalls by his close family of Everett Mountaineers.


His Legacy
Larry Ingalls

As teacher, mentor, and friend, Larry was a prolific ambassador of The Mountaineers. He loved to hike, scramble, snowshoe and climb, seeking his spirit on the peaks and encouraging others to also find their way.

Through OYC, his legacy survives so that younger generations  may "revel in the accomplishment..." of outdoor adventures like those he valued so much as a Mountaineer.
