What we're all about...

Since 1973, Wilderness Ventures has enabled young people to have the time of their lives while enjoying the most beautiful environments on the planet in a supportive, small group setting. Students enjoy summer adventures that empower them with team skills while fostering a deep appreciation for the natural world. Activities such as whitewater rafting, backpacking, kayaking and rock climbing enable students to have fun while building self-esteem, leadership ability, problem solving skills, focus and consideration for others. Places like southern Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, California, the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park have inspired over 21,000 student alumni over the past four decades. We are a program for great young people who share a common excitement for enjoying new activities and environments. Students enroll as individuals (rarely with a friend) to join a carefully constructed group of their peers with whom they develop lasting friendships. Our highly trained leaders ensure for a fun, safe and carefully executed experience while serving as mentors, teachers, guides and role models for our students. Programs fill in February with a few spaces remaining until the summer. For references, availability and our program catalog, call our family-run office in Jackson Hole, Wyoming at 800-533-2281.
