Nestled in the high mountain plains of northwest Wyoming, Teton Valley Ranch Camp has access to some of the most beautiful and pristine places around. Usually, it takes some work to get to these incredible places, but the work is always worth the reward! During their time at camp campers can sign up for various hikes that are offered through our in-camp program to explore the wilderness that surrounds us. Leaving early in the morning and returning for dinner, campers get a chance to hike through Grand Teton National Park, Bridger-Teton National Forest, and Shoshone National Forest. Whether to a beautiful lake to catch a fish, or summiting a mountain to view the valley from above, day hikes are always a popular activity!

Campers usually sign-up for day hikes at least one day prior to the hike. With the help of their cabin counselor, they pack their day pack the night before, so they are ready for an early breakfast and to hit the trail in the morning. They will take rain gear, water bottles, a sack lunch, and, of course, a camera along with them to record all that they see.
