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 Expedition

Explore Yellowstone and climb the Grand Teton.

Hike Yellowstone, kayak the Snake, climb the Grand.

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. Over the course of three weeks out West, summiting the Grand will be our goal.

Hiking, backpacking, and kayaking — ideal activities in Yellowstone and the Tetons. Warm-up day hikes, a multi-day backcountry hike (picture big mountains, sweeping meadows, brilliant blue lakes, and abundant wildlife), and a day of kayaking on the Snake are the settings for our exploration of this beautiful area.

Our final challenge: 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.

At trip end: fun, friends, challenge, and accomplishment. Our goal was the Grand, but we’ll have achieved more than that, much more.
