The BYU-Idaho Outdoor Learning Center creates deeply significant leadership, learning, and outdoor experiences through partnerships with academic departments and campus organizations.
The BYU-Idaho Outdoor Learning Center has provided deeply significant experiences for the University and community since 1979. This facility has been dedicated President Bruce C. Hafen and President David A. Bednar to be a place of spiritual growth and learning for all those who experience the spirit of Badger Creek. Located at Badger Creek in the base of the Teton Valley, the Outdoor Learning Center is an outdoor, hands-on learning laboratory.
What Do We Do?
Take our dedicated ranch, 5 main ropes courses, the principle based learning activities, campsites, cabins, and lodge and use those to create experiences that you can take with you for a lifetime. We serve to create partnerships with academic departments and campus organizations, meaning that our certified staff and the group leaders will coordinate a learning experience focused on the principles chosen by the group while adventuring through our ropes courses and activities.
The Outdoor Learning Center also hosts summer youth programs including:
Campus Groups from Brigham Young University-Idaho can also come up year-round to have their deeply significant experience. Bring your family home evening groups, ward groups, or sports team to come up and grow closer together and have an experience that won't be forgotten.

Due to our alliance with the University we can only hire students of BYU-Idaho to offer this experience to those students who attend the University.
