Outrider Expeditions

Two Week Backpacking Adventures in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem

The TVRC Outrider Expeditions is your chance to introduce your camper to the TVRC spirit through exploring the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem’s wilds during a two-week backpacking experience.

The Outrider Expedition may be the perfect solution if your camper has scheduling conflicts that prohibit them from attending our traditional four-week boys or girls camp. It is also a great option if your camper is interested in TVRC but isn’t sure they want to be away from home for four weeks. This two-week option gives a sampling of the TVRC experience without the extended time. It is also a great introduction for your camper if they are older and new to TVRC, and would like to try TVRC out before joining a longer session with a more established Adventure Group.

Each camper will embark on two different four or five day backpacking trips, depending on their gender and age level. Our trips will bring Outriders into either Grand Teton National Park or one of the many national forests surrounding Jackson Hole and our 3,000-acre ranch.

Over the 82 years of running TVRC, we’ve found the strongest friendships are forged along the trail. This two-week program is sure to offer that to all of our campers. Campers will learn the skills of living in the backcountry, navigating using topographic maps, and participating as a leader and team member in their groups of ten campers and two trail counselors.

We run a total of four Outrider programs during the summer season, with two session options during late July and early August. This is a limited program as we only take 10 campers per group, we have room for a total of 40 campers each summer. Pleae be sure to apply ASAP as we’re expecting this program to fill quickly for the upcoming summer.
