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.

Yellowstone Teton Adventure

Explore the spectacular landscape of Yellowstone and the Tetons.

Two exciting weeks exploring Yellowstone and the Tetons.

Hike, kayak, and raft. Learn about native plants and wildlife. Look for bison and bald eagles. Join a fun-loving Overland group and see the West the way it should be seen: on foot with friends.

In the Tetons at the start of our trip, we’ll hike with a naturalist who will teach us about the plants and animals found in this beautiful setting. On all of our day hikes out West, we’ll travel light with just the essentials: water, snacks, lunch, and sunscreen. Plus, we’ll take our time and stick together, with a leader at the front and rear. While hiking we’ll tell stories and sing songs, and we’ll stop a lot for rest and water and snacks. It’s fun, even if you’ve never hiked before. You’ll learn fast, and you’ll keep up just fine.

In Yellowstone, we’ll explore the park on hikes to big views of Yellowstone’s mountains, lakes, and rivers. These hikes will get us into Yellowstone’s beautiful backcountry. On Yellowstone Lake, we’ll kayak with guides, learning basic paddle strokes as we look for wildlife and glide past thermal features. Kayaking is an ideal way to see the West from a new perspective, while enjoying the fun of learning a new outdoor skill.

During our trip, we’ll see Old Faithful, Yellowstone Falls, and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. It’s like a greatest hits list for America’s best known and most loved natural wonders. We’ll also raft the Snake River — a perfect choice for beginners — with professional guides at the helm to navigate the Snake while teaching us about the land around us.

At the end of the trip, we’ll head back to Jackson for our last night together and celebrate all of our adventures out West, all of our fun as a group, and all of the friendships we’ve made. Yellowstone Teton Adventure offers a variety of activities that are finely-tuned to the abilities and interests of 6th and 7th graders. Two Overland leaders will create a wholesome, supportive environment where each camper is an important part of the group. By design, Yellowstone Teton Adventure is a wonderful way to explore these spectacular national parks while enjoying the friendships and fun of an Overland group.

Good Things to Know. The group is always small — no more than 12 students — and we always have carefully chosen and thoroughly prepared leaders. The itinerary is crafted to provide just the right mix of activities — the goal is to have every student love their Overland experience. The camping is in private campgrounds and state and national parks, all of which offer full facilities, including hot showers. Meals are wholesome, nutritious, and varied… and they’re fun group projects with input from everyone and lots of guidance from the leaders. Getting to and from the trip is a breeze: there are excellent flight options into Jackson, Wyoming, and we provide supervision on arrival and departure so that travel days go smoothly.
