Whether I was mountain biking in Colorado, cooking pancakes in the Weminuche Wilderness, or hiking through the Costa Rican rainforest to an eco-reserve, Deer Hill has been a life-changing experience. Friends who spot each other over precarious areas throughout the day have the ability to get to know each other on a deeper level. Every night they share their challenges, hopes, and fears in Circle. Deer Hill leaders help the participants to challenge themselves both physically and mentally, teachi... (more »)

Deer Hill is a great place. The combination of the outdoors and the people at Deer Hill are really what make it such a special place. My favorite part about Deer Hill (besides food at base camp) is going out into the wilderness and building great relationships with such cool people who are so knowledgeable. Deer Hill is a great chance to do really cool activities like rafting, hiking, biking, and climbing through canyons; all with an incredible group of teenagers from across the country. Thro...

I spent two summers at Deer Hill and they were the two best summers of my life. I couldn't say what was best about them -- the breathtaking mountain and canyon scenery, the satisfaction of finishing a tough hike and looking down to where you started thinking "I just climbed that," the unforgettable cultural exchanges on the reservation, or the amazing bonds you form with your group members. I came home with a new sense of confidence, a refreshed view of the world, and a collection of memories ... (more »)

Deer Hill is magic. I won't never forget this experience. If you are looking for something new, friendly, sporting this is the place to be. I saw wonderful landscapes, i had so much fun and i met incredible people. Deer Hill changed my life forever. Deer Hill is not about writing but about living something you will never forget.

I have always had a great love of the outdoors, but nothing allowed me to embrace this passion like my experience with Deer Hill. Participating in the Wilderness Leadership program is something that I will remember for the rest of my life, not only for the genuine connections I formed with my peers, leaders, and surroundings, but for my experience of personal growth. Deer Hill is special in that it provides a physical and spiritual challenge that enables you to get in touch with yourself and the... (more »)

My name is Indra and I attende one of the Deer Hills trip during the summer of 2009. Deer Hill is more than hiking and camping. Deer Hill has changed my thinking in many ways. I profoundly found that I have potential to achieve my goals and be a strong person. I was worried at first, it was hard at first but later as I became close to other friends I realize that I am the part of Deer Hill family. Nothin in life is easy at first. I felt lonely sometimes during the trip but if I did not felt that... (more »)

I have spent four summers with Deer Hill expeditions, and I cannot imagine myself today without these life-changing experiences. Deer Hill teaches the value of wilderness, cultural exchange, and service, while still leaving plenty of room for self discovery. The leaders are knowledgeable and committed to the welfare of participants. DHE is fun and challenging, and its traditions nourish friendship and community.

I still can remember my first time on a Deer Hill course. I have to say it changed my life and my view on life as well. I cannot even remember exactly how many courses I completed through Deer Hill but its probably somewhere between 5 or 6. These summers were incredible. Its an experience unlike any other. The landscape plus the instructors where so inspirational that I couldn't seem to stay away. Something that stands out to me when I look back was the amazing few days spent on the reservations...

I spent two years at Deer Hill Expeditions and they were the best two summers of my life. The small group of friends that I made over the trip was amazing. We bonded and became closer as we experienced amazing thrills. We scaled mountaintops, backpacked through awe-inspiring canyons, and had the amazing opportunity to receive the knowledge and generosity of a kind Navajo family as we volunteered beside them, building fences and doing other jobs that needed to be done in order to help the Nava...

My best summers ever were spent at Deer Hill. The friends you make, the places you go to, and the things you do are all worth while whether it is scaling the peaks of the Rocky Mountains or taking part in community service at a Hopi reservation. I would highly suggest Deer Hill Expeditions to anyone looking for adventure and fun in the great outdoors!
