Deer Hill Scholarship

"Deer Hill Expeditions is a local, Mancos-based summer adventure program for teens that has been delivering transformational experiences since 1984. Deer Hill provides enriching wilderness and service experiences in the American Southwest, designed to foster personal growth and cultivate a greater sense of self and community.

Summer Expeditions with Deer Hill are roughly three weeks long, and lead participants into some of the most enriching places of the Colorado Plateau. Wilderness activities can include multi-day white water river expeditions, technical canyoneering, mountain backpacking, peak ascents, and rock climbing. Community service projects take place with Native American service hosts on the Navajo Nation and with the Hopi and Zuni Pueblos.

Deer Hill has once again partnered with Osprey to create a scholarship for a local teen to participate in one of our summer programs tuition free. The scholarship recipient will also receive a free 70-liter backpack from Osprey to use on their expedition and take home afterwards! This is a need-based scholarship with a small essay component. All applications are due by April 1st. Recipients must be 13-18 years old to qualify.

Feel free to visit our website to find our more about Deer Hill Expeditions
