What We Do
Take our dedicated ranch, 5 main ropes courses, the principle based learning activities, campsites, cabins, and lodge and use those to create experiences that you can take with you for a lifetime. We serve to create partnerships with academic departments and campus organizations, meaning that our certified staff and the group leaders will coordinate a learning experience focused on the principles chosen by the group while adventuring through our ropes courses and activities. Campus Groups from Brigham Young University-Idaho can also come up year-round to have their deeply significant experience. Bring your family home evening groups, ward groups, or sports team to come up and grow closer together and have an experience that won't be forgotten....
