Adventure for hire
Grizzly & Co. is committed to allowing students to connect to the outdoors, be it through rigorous survival training, or a relaxing stroll through the forest. We truly believe that through outdoor education and the promotion of the "old ways" we can provide a strong skill base for meeting and overcoming the challenges of today's unstable world. Through practicing outdoor skills and adventurous play our students build awareness, self reliance, and confidence. Learning to take care of ourselves allows us to care for others. Whether bringing the group home safely from a hike or aiding their families during times of crisis, Grizzly & Co. students will be prepared.

At Grizzly & Co., we provide safe, supervised opportunity for adventure. With our years of experience teaching outdoor skills, wilderness survival, axe throwing, and team building activities, we are able to offer a wide array of activities. Students of Grizzly & Co. may practice nature observation one day, fire building another, and team building exercises on yet another day. Each class is based around the needs and interests of our students, with personal growth in mind. Each activity is presented in such a way as to encourage practice, patience, focus, and eventual success! Some of our broader categories include:
Outdoor Skills- This includes such things as shelter building, plant identification, animal tracking, fire building, rope making, lashing and knot-tying, basic wood tools, water purification, first aid, and a host of others.
Throwing Skills- One of our specialties, Grizzly & Co. originally began as a mobile axe throwing range! With ten years of axe throwing experience, older students (11yrs and older) can expect to become skilled at axe throwing, knife throwing, spear throwing, and atlatl use. Younger students will practice rock throwing and stick throwing on our rock range! Finally a safe place to have some rowdy fun!
Team Building- Students will be constantly exposed to challenging situations requiring critical thinking and problem solving skills. While riddles and puzzles will be constant companions, students will also spend time facing our team building elements and rustic group challenges.
Frontier Games- While most of our time will be spent engaging in active learning, plenty of opportunities for students to unwind will be made available. Learn to handle a lasso, roll a log, play a few rounds of "cat and mouse", or challenge each together to a skillet toss. Kick back at a picnic table with some checkers, balance some river rocks, play some story dice, or a round of nine men's Morris.
