Montrek (n.)

An experiential journey of the mind, body, and spirit through education, adventure, and service.

We've partnered with Camp Grier to provide an exciting program for elementary, middle, and high school groups that blends wilderness adventure, service, and spirituality.

These wilderness programs are designed to help groups experience the natural world, feel the thrill of adventure, and be challenged in new ways. Whether you are hoping for an exciting week of challenging activities or just want to build relationships and enjoy some fellowship in the mountains, Montrek can provide students an experience that will help them to grow personally, educationally, and spiritually outside the classroom.

Who Can Participate?

These programs are perfect for individual classrooms, specific grade levels, or as transition programs when students move from elementary to middle school or middle to high school. Our programs can also provide a capstone experience for graduating seniors.

What Sets Us Apart?

We have the capability to house over 400 individuals in a variety of accommodations including a recently updated hotel and various lodges. We are surrounded by approximately 2,500 acres of pristine wilderness that is permanently protected and will never be developed.

How It Works

Our staff will work with your team to choose the right activities and build the right sequence to meet your desired goals and outcomes. We can customize tracks to fit a myriad of schedules. Whether you are looking for a full day, two day, or multi-day experience, our program can be created to fit your needs.
