Mission Statement

Lincoln Hills Cares develops the next generation of young leaders through outdoor education and recreation, cultural history exploration and workforce advancement. Our programs empower youth who may not otherwise have the opportunity due to economic, social or family circumstances.

Organization History

Founded by Robert F. Smith and Matthew Burkett, and based in Colorado, LHC is a charitable organization that strives to increase equity in accessing outdoor resources and opportunities for youth, families and communities that may experience barriers.

Lincoln Hills Cares cultivates life changing moments through integrative outdoor experiences for community partners and marginalized youth and families in the Denver metro and Front Range mountain areas. As Lincoln Hills Cares continues to grow, our vision will remain steadfast - to develop young leaders and build community through outdoor experiences. We aim to fulfill our mission through ongoing preservation practices and culturally relevant programs, activities and events across the Metro Denver and Front Range mountain areas. Through extensive restoration efforts, Lincoln Hills has recovered from its tumultuous recent history as a mining property and has reestablished its roots in connecting people to nature.


By the end of the summer, my teens looked forward to the day of the week we would make the trip to see you. New kids who joined us through the summer were caught up in that anticipation and came ready to be taught and challenged. You attracted a great team of expertise and personality this summer, and we enjoyed them."
