Group Outdoor Programs at Deer Hill

School Programs

For years, Deer Hill has specialized in hosting a wide range of school programs designed for middle school, high school, and college students. Students gain valuable hands-on field experience, which in turn compliments their classroom learning, strengthens their connection with their classmates and teachers, and often provides a well-rounded capstone experience.  Our fully customizable group programs include service learning/cultural exchange elements as well as wilderness immersion.  

Private Programs

Deer Hill facilitates private programs for alumni groups, family and friend trips, and acts as a third party outfitter for river retreats. In choosing us for your private program, you are choosing to embark on a journey steeped in our core ethics: connection to self, others, and to place.  In this way, we offer an experience unique to many other outfitters.  By choosing Deer Hill you are choosing to be a part of the fabric of the Deer Hill community! Contact us to see if a private program is a good fit for you and your group.

Facility Rentals

Host your next event, retreat, or gathering at our beautiful 120 acre basecamp!  Our guests in the past have utilized our space for conferences, meetings, yoga and mindfulness retreats, workshops, and more.  Rent our meeting space for an afternoon, or the whole facility for a weekend!  Facility Rentals are customizable for your group’s specific needs – catering and lodging options are available.

The program you run at Deer Hill is just amazing and top-notch. Your obvious love and devotion to outdoor life is evident in every little thing that you do. Our guides were exceptional and Mr. Smith, our Navajo host, impacted my group in a profound way. Our sweat lodge was life-altering. On behalf of all my children and all their parents, thank you.

Through Deer Hill and its Staff’s commitment and capacity to fulfill its mission for our Waldorf 8th grade group, the words the students spoke at our closing Circle made clear the experience met my wildest hopes for them. Their world views changed dramatically. They expressed whole new levels of gratitude for their privileged lives.

Our trip with Deer Hill, so tactfully facilitated by our guides, brought us to a meaningful conversation with the forces of nature and, as importantly, a profound encounter with ourselves.
