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.

Whether your group is looking for high adventure or low-risk challenges, Youth Dynamics Adventures Idaho 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.

Whitewater Rafting and Kayaking

From calm and entertaining Class II rapids that can accommodate everyone to heart-thumping adventures to Class IV sections for groups looking to step into a new realm of excitement and learning. Most sections of whitewater can be run from March until September, which offers one of the longest rafting seasons in North America.

Mountaineering and Rock Climbing

Take your adventure into the vertical world with us! We welcome new climbers into this activity as well as offer a new challenge to the most experienced rock climbers. Climbing experiences take place locally in the Boise area at Black Cliffs or two hours north in the cooler and greener granite crags above Cascade.

Team Building and Challenge Course

Our team can turn almost any outdoor area into a spot ripe for challenge and discovery with our portable course. We won’t be dangling high up in the air, but the Idaho team will facilitate challenges that will be fun, thought-provoking, and appropriate for your group.


Custom Adventure Combo

Pair a few adventures together and experience another dimension of creation with your group. Our most popular offering is to invest two to three days and link a half-day challenge course with a day of rock climbing and finish out with some great whitewater. Our team prepares camp, meals and works with your group leaders ahead of time to plan the content for your adventure. In addition to the usual challenge and fun, your group will also be encouraged toward facilitated quiet times in the morning around the North Fork of the Payette.

Leadership Development

We believe in providing an immersive community experience as young people step into consequential leadership in our weekly, six-week, and summer-long leadership programs.
