Description

The Ranch:

2,360 acres of rolling plains and pine forests comprise Teton Valley Ranch Camp’s new home. The scenic property lies just 10 miles west of Dubois, WY and 70 miles east of Jackson Hole. Nestled among ridges and valleys and set four miles back from the road, it is a true secluded western ranch.

Riding:

The riding program at TVRC caters to all levels of experience. Campers can spend their morning or afternoon learning rodeo events such as barrel racing, pole bending, or keyhole in the gymkhana program. They can develop or strengthen their fundamental riding skills in the horsemanship program which focuses on proper and safe riding techniques.

Backpacking:

Imagine hiking through a pine forest with the sweet smell of balsam lingering in the air. The trail opens to a meadow painted with purple lupine, yellow balsam-root, and fiery red Indian paintbrush. In front of you stands the most magnificent peak you have ever seen. It calls your name. You realize that in the next four days you will see spectacular views, cook all of your meals over an open fire, sleep under the stars, and experience both great challenges and great rewards.

Pack Trips:

There are some areas of the Teton Wilderness that are only accessible by foot or horseback. Campers will have the opportunity to explore these areas on scenic pack trips into the Gros Venture Wilderness or Teton Wilderness areas. Experienced outfitters lead the pack trips and carry all of the food and supplies on a string of mules. Campers will ride on horseback sixteen miles through forests and meadows, across rivers and along ridges, to the campsite where they will live for the next four days

In Camp:

When not out hiking across alpine meadows or riding through crystal streams, TVRC offers various in-camp activities to excite its campers. All activities at TVRC are not only fun, but strive to educate campers in an exciting and innovative manner. Safety is our priority and all activities are run with that in mind.

Amazing, probably one of the best most friendly and exciting summer camps in the United States. Ideal for those who love horses, the outdoors and constant entertainment. Was only able to go for three of the years out of the five this camp offers but some of the best times in my life!
