What is the Doug Walker Challenge Course Campaign?
Doug Walker was a teacher at Teton Science Schools who dreamed of constructing a challenge course in Jackson Hole.  His dream was realized in 1995, two years after his death, and now, 17 years after its construction, the course needs to be rebuilt.  This campaign is to fund the reconstruction of the Doug Walker Challenge Course and ensure Doug’s dream remains a reality!

The Doug Walker Challenge Course will be located at the Jackson Campus of Teton Science Schools and made available as a resource for use by partners within the Jackson Hole Community, fulfilling Doug’s original dream.
What are the benefits of this project?
The course will provide endless opportunities in team building as well as the development of physical and emotional fitness for hundreds of TSS participants, local students and partnering organizations.
How will the course be designed?
The course will be designed in partnership with Project Adventure; the pioneer and leader in design, construction and training surrounding adventure-based challenge courses.
Where does my money go?
All funds will be transferred directly to the Teton Science Schools, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization located in Jackson Hole, WY.  All funds will be used for the reconstruction of the Doug Walker Challenge Course.
How do I know my donation will make a difference?

Len gave $100 for a donation towards the Doug Walker Challenge Course

Let Doug's spirit soar and kids grow on the Doug Walker Challenge Course

Doug was a friend of mine in his days working as a teacher at TSS. He loved kids, adventure, and education. In September of 1993, he died on Nez Percé Peak in the Tetons. His spirit lives on through his family, his friends, and his dream of peeling away fear and filling young people with practical, real experiences that prove they have the power to do difficult things.

Doug wanted to use a challenge course as a tool – promoting team work, character building and leadership. He was determined to make a positive change in the world. Please make Doug’s dream your own. Please make a gift to help re-build the Doug Walker Challenge Course at Teton Science Schools.

Ways you can help:

1. Make a donation to the campaign.

2. For some of us older-timers, using social media like this is new and a little different. Let’s give it a try. Let’s see if we can bring some good out of both Doug’s challenge course vision and this new-fangled digital world.

Thank you!
