STAFF A.jpg

Award-winning staff

At Wilderness Adventure, one of the "Best Places to Work" according to Outside Magazine,  our staff love their jobs!  While our activities are inherently fun, the facilitation by our staff will make your experience unforgettable.  Most of our staff are college graduates with a great deal of experience not only in the outdoors, but also in customer service, and they love getting to know our groups!  We make it our mission to go above in beyond to meet the needs of all our guests.

Food Service

Our goal is to ensure an outstanding dining experience for every one of our guests.  Our chefs are proud to use fresh ingredients to ensure quality.  Whether we're serving a school group or catering a wedding, we accommodate each group's budget and tastes. Meals are primarily served buffet style in our Main Lodge or our outdoor pavilion, and we are also able to provide gourmet plated meals for a more formal dining experience.

We accommodate around 80 people in our three comfortable lodges, and for guests interested in a truly outdoor experience we have a range of campsites and gear!  Our extensive property of nearly 500 acres, includes hiking trails, ponds, two open air pavilions, access to Craig's Creek, the Bluff Overlook, a 900' zipline, ropes courses, our climbing wall and rappel tower, and acres of beauty!
