Deer Hill’s wilderness expeditions and cross-cultural service projects offer participants profound growth and self-discovery as well as good fun and adventure. Participants raft the ancient river canyons of Utah, ascend the peaks of Colorado’s San Juan Mountains, and work alongside families in Navajo, Hopi, or Zuni communities in New Mexico and Arizona.
Deer Hill’s mission is to inspire each individual to honor his or her own personal journey and experience the joy of being an integral member of a group. Through Deer Hill’s unique blend of wilderness challenge and cross-cultural interaction, participants learn to bring their best selves forward in community. Expeditions are supported by an administrative staff and an internship program at our 128-acre Basecamp located just west of Durango in Southwest Colorado. This comfortable and vibrant setting provides a landing place for Field Staff as they start and end their expeditions with Deer Hill.
A small company, founded in 1984, Deer Hill Expeditions is committed to personal development through excellence in technical skills, responsible stewardship of the natural world, and authentic service that connects communities.
