It is our unfortunate responsibility to inform everyone that after 38 years of operation, the OLC will officially end programming on December 8th 2017. We appreciate all of the special stories about Badger Creek that people have been sharing over the last week. We would encourage you to continue to share your experiences by sending them to badgercreek@byui.edu. There are still some events for students through December, and you can purchase tickets through the events section. Reservations for public groups may call the BYUI scheduling office at 208-496-3120 for available dates and times. Pricing may be found through the reservations section. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this special place....

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 We Do

What 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. 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.
