Share OG to earn rewards!

Refer-A-Buddy and we’ll get you gear!

Fellow Backpacktivists!

We are members of a rare breed.  We are critical thinkers and enthusiastic explorers, equally focused on the world yet scattered across it.  There are more of us out there, waiting to be found, and we need your help to do it.

Each year our Refer-A-Buddy program rewards team members who educate their peers on backpacking with a purpose.  Bring a friend, schoolmate, or complete stranger on an OG program and we’ll kick you back with a $100 gift card to MEC or REI.

Woah! Really?  Here are more details and the rules:

1.  You are eligible for a gift card if you are going on a program in the spring or summer of 2015.

2.  The person you refer may join any program in the spring or summer of 2015, space allowing.

3.  The person you referred must pay their deposit during the contest period to count as a referral.  The contest period ends on May 24th, 2015

4.  You must share the full name, email address, or phone number of the person you referred with Eric at OGHQ ( to be guaranteed a referral.

5.  The limit is three (3) gift cards per person.

6.  Each gift card will be worth $100 in American or Canadian funds, depending on your locale.  If you reside outside the US or Canada you may suggest a local sporting goods store and we will purchase a gift card with a value equivalent to 100 Canadian Dollars.
