WY Horsepacking Adventure

Ages 11 – 18, 18 Days

Cost: $4,800

WY Horsepacking Adventure Highlights:

250 lb camper weight limit

  • Our WY Horsepacking Adventure is built for the camper who loves horses and love adventure!
  • Participants will begin their journey with Horse School at Eagle View Ranch, where western riding skills are honed and practiced on trail rides into nearby Warm Springs Canyon.
  • The highlight of this course is a 4-day, 3-night horsepacking expedition into the Wind River Mountains. With pack mules and real wranglers at their side, campers sleep under the stars surrounded by evergreens and soaring mountain ranges.
  • Next the team heads off to discover Yellowstone National Park. America’s first National Park, Yellowstone is home to the largest number of geysers in the world, including the popular Old Faithful, as well as a vast array of wildlife, such as bear, wolves, moose, elk, and bison! Campers will learn about these incredible creatures as they visit the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center.
  • The team then heads to Grand Teton National Park for day hikes among the pristine mountain lakes, and the stunning mountain terrain. 
  • The next big adventure will take the teams to Sinks Canyon State Park, where they experience the thrill of rock climbing and exploration of the Popo Agie River (which vanishes underground before returning to the surface a few miles downstream).
  • Other Wild West adventures on this course include archery, hatchets, a day of whitewater rafting on the Snake River and a visit to the Dubois Rodeo!
  • WY Horsepacking Adventure concludes with a day of camp-wide “Cowboy Contests” in which campers get to work together to showcase their newfound skills!
