About Youth Dynamics Adventures Idaho

Located in Horseshoe Bend, Idaho, about 30 miles north of Boise, the base allows for a spectrum of experiences in God’s creation. Placed between the western edge of the Rockies and the Great Basin Desert, it is common to raft on the boundary of the desert one day and climb in the subalpine the next.

Program Design

Whether your group is looking for high adventure or low-risk challenges, Youth Dynamics Adventures can help facilitate a trip to meet your goals.

No matter what level of adventure you choose, your trip becomes a pivotal launch toward transformation. Adventure forges the backbone to your trip, but quiet, uninterrupted conversation and time to think will bring deep value to your guided activity.

Our staff will assist you to craft a custom facilitated experience for your group that has the opportunity to be life-transforming and memorable.  Whether it is a one-day climbing at the Black Cliffs or an eight-day expedition trip in the remote Owyhees, our goal is to help spur your group toward greater and deeper connection and correlation to faith and life with Jesus.
