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?
All donors will receive a story and a photo about a life that has been changed through the work of the Teton Science Schools.

Help us rebuild the Doug Walker Challenge Course

We all put so much work in to the Doug Walker Challenge Course nearly 20 years ago…

As much as I hated to see the course dismantled in 2012, I know all of the Teton Science Schools folks are excited to bring the Challenge Course to the TSS Jackson Campus. It will get a huge amount of use from kids and people of all ages from all over the country. It will serve teenagers from inner city Los Angeles, military families being reuniting, and teachers who want to learn to take risks and bring leadership into the classroom.

I would love to see all of Doug’s friends and friends of TSS contribute to make this project a reality by giving online through See Your Impact. A gift of any size is a great step in the right direction…
