Our hearts continue to go out to everyone impacted by Covid-19 as we recognize how very challenging this time is for the entire world. As the Deer Hill team continuously evaluates the best paths moving forward for the health and safety of our program participants, staff, and partners, we will continue to provide you with timely updates.
During 35 years of operation, Deer Hill has endured many challenges. In the past, we always found ways to adapt our programming when met with unexpected changes. This pandemic is no different. We are continuously evaluating all possible ways to adapt amidst these times, while always staying close to our mission. We believe that this work is certainly needed now more than ever and look forward to the day that we will be able to, once again, take solace in nature together and continue to grow as a community.
Updates on the Current State of Deer Hill Expeditions:
- A few of our staff are back to work at the office, ranging from part-time to full-time. You might be hearing more from us through social media and email, but our response times may still be delayed. The best way to get in contact with us is still by sending an email to email@example.com as our in-person office hours are still limited.
- We are still currently planning to run a full fall season and hope to run custom group and family programs as soon as it is safe to do so, however the timing is far from predictable. If you would like to learn more about scheduling a custom group or family program with us and get more information on our cancellation policy, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- New programming opportunities! We are currently looking into new and exciting ways to bring our mission to more people during these challenging times. Family reunion river trips, yoga retreats, creative writing workshops and more come to mind first. What makes us different from other adventure outfitters? We would continue to offer all of the unique program elements that make Deer Hill special like nightly “circle,” team building exercises, opportunities for solo time, guided side hikes, and plenty of fun and games around camp to provide you with a holistic and meaningful experience. If you think this could be a good fit for your group and want to learn more, please email us at email@example.com.
As always, we continue to consult national, state, and local public health authorities for the best guidance on what reopening will look like for Deer Hill. Our top priority is always to protect our program participants, staff, and partners.
If you have any questions and concerns now and in the months ahead, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. The best way to get in contact with us is still by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org as our in-person office hours are still limited. We will respond as promptly as we can.

…best three weeks of my life. I felt mentally and physically stronger and more independent. I met incredible people and built friendships that I will never forget. Now that I have conquered the hardships during the trip, I believe in myself. Finding myself in the middle of nowhere was amazing!”Kailasha, Participant, 2018 Heart of the Rockies
