Help me raise money to rebuild the Doug Walker Challenge Course
Please help us teach youth about leadership and teamwork through experiential learning! Help us realize Doug Walker’s Ropes Course dream!
Who was Doug Walker?
Doug was like a brother to me. He loved life, his family, and the mountains. Doug taught at the Teton Science Schools in 1992. He loved connecting people with nature and dreamed of expanding experiential teaching, with the hope of using a challenge (ropes) course as a tool; promoting team work, character building and leadership. He was determined to make a positive change in the world, and was an inspiration to us all.
Doug was killed in a climbing accident in the Teton Mountains on September 23, 1993. While Doug’s friends and family were devastated, they brought his dream of a challenge course to life in May of 1995. Many students gained wonderful experiences on this course, but unfortunately, the course was dismantled in June of 2012 to make way for the construction of a new administrative building for Teton County School District.
The Teton Science Schools (TSS) is currently working with Doug’s family and friends to re-build the Doug Walker Challenge Course at the Jackson Campus of TSS for continued use within the Jackson Hole community. We have received an initial gift of $25,000 and are trying to match or exceed this initial gift.
Please help us realize Doug’s dream and re-build the Doug Walker Challenge Course at Teton Science Schools.
