Youth Grand Valley

“It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves”
– Sir Edmund Hillary

Our backpacking and day hiking programs are one-of-a-kind experiences that reward participants with the best that the backcountry offers. Our hikes will take you from low valleys to high peaks and everywhere. Get out and enjoy all of the beautiful flora and fauna that Washington has to offer.

Our trip leaders are trained, safety-oriented professionals with medical certification for Wilderness First Responder (WFR) or Wilderness First Aid (WFA). To best enjoy each experience, participants should appropriately match their ability level to each trip’s unique physical and environmental challenges. Group size ranges from 4-10 participants.

Trip pricing includes guides, van transportation, outdoor gear, camping permits, and park entrance fees. Food is included on backpacking trips only. Participants must have taken Backpacking 101 to join backpacking trips or have trip leader approval.
