Open Enrollment Courses

For years we have been running courses for families and youth that provide invaluable backcountry experiences. Backpacking, climbing, rappelling and mountaineering are a few of the adventure components integrated into our courses. Take, for example, our Adventures in Fatherhood Course. This course provides an opportunity for Dads to have an adventure with their son or daughter, break routine, have some time away from the noise and business of life and create space to connect with each other.

Perhaps you might be interested in our Outdoor Leadership Training Course, for outdoor enthusiasts wanting to learn valuable backcountry skills, or try your hand in mountaineering on Mount Rainier. Check out our 2020 Classic Adventures schedule below!
