{Dover, NH—April 17, 2024}—Outdoor gear brand NEMO Equipment has focused its mission on innovation, community, and sustainability since the beginning, and the company is proud to announce its list of 2024 partners that closely align with those values. With an emphasis on access, inclusivity, and conservation, the brand has renewed key partnerships and added new ones in an effort to get more folks outdoors and create the next generation of stewards for our planet.


Outdoors Empowered Network is a national network of community-led, youth-centered outdoor education groups. OEN helps increase diversity in the outdoors through low-cost (or free) gear libraries and leadership training.

Confluence Collective removes barriers and amplifies representation of human diversity on the water by creating a safe community for all fly-fishing enthusiasts. CC hosts angler and camping events in Maine, Montana, and Wisconsin.

And, in an effort to expand its government affairs capabilities and knowledge, NEMO has also joined forces with organizations including California Outdoor Recreation Partnership, Outdoor Recreation Roundtable, Outdoor Alliance, European Outdoor Group, and American Apparel and Footwear Association.


Camp Yoshi was founded with the intent to help diversify the outdoor space. Since its inception, it has helped create safe spaces for people of color and allies (first-time campers and enthusiasts alike) by curating trips that allow them to explore the art of camping through their unique lens.

Bewilder is a female, BIPOC-owned and -founded experiential media company inspiring families to spend time outside. They host pop-up retail events in partnership with outdoor brands and retailers, and provide a monthly newsletter featuring trip ideas, kid-friendly activities, and advice for staying safe in nature. For the 2023–24 school year, Bewilder teamed up with Camino Nuevo Charter Academy in Los Angeles to provide outdoor and environmental education programming aimed at engaging K-8 students.

Black.Surfers is an organization fighting to attain equitable access to surfing for Black people through policy and community. The Black-centric organization welcomes allies as part of its membership and aims to eliminate the systemic and cultural barriers that prevent Black people from reclaiming their ancestral birthright to the ocean, surfing, and fully enjoying all it has to offer.

Big City Mountaineers is a nonprofit that connects youth in disinvested communities with the outdoors. BCM provides free, fully outfitted, professionally led backpacking trips to kids in urban areas across the country.

Access also includes supporting organizations that work to conserve our public lands and waterways and provide healthy landscapes for wildlife. NEMO continues to partner with

Southeast Land Trust of NH, The Conservation Alliance, Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, and Teddy Roosevelt Conservation Partnership.

More information about these groups and partnerships can be found on NEMO’s Adventure Resources page.
