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!
Where will the challenge course be located? 
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?

Support the Doug Walker Challenge Course Project at TSS

While I never actually knew Doug Walker, his energy and spirit embodied much of what we still do on a daily basis at Teton Science Schools – connecting people, nature and place through education, science and stewardship.

I am excited to be working with an amazing team of people to fundraise and re-build the Doug Walker Challenge Course at the Jackson Campus of TSS for the benefit of hundreds of learners of all ages for many years to come.

Please help us match the initial $25,000 gift by making a gift or starting your own fundraising page and reaching out to friends, family and community members. Share Doug’s story and the campaign; the more people we reach, the closer we come to re-building Doug’s dream of a Challenge Course to serve the Jackson Hole community.

Thank you!
