We Welcome Your Application to Join Us!

We build each of our groups with care, keeping the groups small (no more than twelve students), and paying close attention to age, grade, gender, and the mix of hometowns and schools. Our goal is to put together great groups — groups where nice kids thrive in a supportive, wholesome, and caring environment. Please note: availability as shown is based on students traveling without a friend; if your child is interested in traveling with a friend, please call our office for availability.

Teton Challenge

Explore Yellowstone and climb the Grand Teton!

Climb the Grand Teton!

A dozen Teton peaks reach over 12,000 feet, but above them all stands the Grand Teton, rising more than a mile above the valley of Jackson Hole. We’ll start with warm-up day hikes, take on a multi-day backcountry hike (picture big mountains, sweeping meadows, brilliant blue lakes, and abundant wildlife), then enjoy a day of kayaking on the Snake. Our final challenge is the Grand Teton — one of America’s most famous climbs. We’ll attend two days of mountaineering school, then work together on a bid to reach the summit at 13,775 feet. Teton Challenge offers three weeks of fun, friends, challenge, and accomplishment!

This was one of the best experiences of my life. I came home with some amazing friends and incredible memories. "
