Design Your Own Course

Mountain Shepherd instructors create experiences for a myriad of adventures! Whether you are searching for an off-the-beaten path celebration, taking a birthday party in a new direction, or reuniting old friends, we will work with you to establish objectives for your group’s experience. Listed below are some ideas for custom experiences, however, we love new challenges! Bring us your ideas.

We have lots of options to serve your group. We can create custom adventures both on and off our property. From survival skills to scavenger hunts to forest bathing on-campus to kayaking, climbing, and stand-up paddle boarding off-campus, we have something for everyone. For ideas on what our day-long offerings we can provide your group, check our Day Pack course page. Additionally, we love backpacking and hiking. If your group wants a custom course, don’t hesitate to reach out to talk about options!

Scout Trips

We work with troop leaders to create experiences to enrich the trip’s objectives. With your collaboration, we create and facilitate experiences to which you can refer and on which you can build for the rest of the year. We easily supplement Girls Scout and Boy Scout merit badges.

Family Reunions

Bring your family to Mountain Shepherd’s property for a single or multi-day experience. We have a menu of mini lessons and activities for family members of all ages and mobility. Our lodge sleeps 56 guests, and our multipurpose room is ideal for rainy day or nighttime movie marathons. Our staff will create something for everyone, while our location will bring everyone together.

Youth Group Trips

Pulling on our experiences in corporate leadership, we design experiences to bring your group together. We use survival priorities to parallel your lessons on faith. We welcome groups and clergy from all faith backgrounds.

Milestone Celebrations

Come celebrate with us when you are turning a year older, reaching an important anniversary, graduating, or retiring. We are in the perfect location for a retreat from the fray. We create as much or as little programming as you want. Use our stage for a friendly roast or rejuvenating concert. Make this milestone one you won’t forget.
