If you would like to make referrals for a therapy oriented or reservations for an empowerment group,  contact us to tell us about your group. We can then set up a time to talk in more detail about how best to meet their needs. We generally like to do a joint staffing before making final decisions about the appropriateness of a trek for specific individuals.


Our fees are on a sliding scale. None of our charges cover our actual costs.

For those who can afford it, the costs of the journeys are $700.00 per day per group. That is for all the participants. We can help you determine ways to cover the fees. The maximum number in a group is seven participants inside the wilderness areas and for all therapy groups, and twelve participants outside the Wilderness Areas. In addition there are three staff, preferably one of whom is from the sponsoring program for therapy and environmental education groups and two of whom are from the sponsoring program for empowerment groups. These numbers are set by the Forest Service.

For children who are protected by the state or who receive free or reduced lunch at school, there is no charge. For young people in non-profit organizations approved by our Board who do not fit that criteria, there is a $500.00 per day fee.


A deposit of $200 is required to reserve dates. One-half of the deposit is refundable if the trek is cancelled 30 days in advance. The entire deposit is forfeited if the trek is cancelled less than 30 days in advance. An invoice is sent after the trip for the trip costs. We accept payment by check or credit card. Make checks payable to Challenge Adventures.

Tax-Deductible Fees

Your fee can help us continue our work. For adult customers who pay a daily fee, a portion of the fee is considered a tax-deductible donation to Challenge Adventures. When you go on an empowerment trip, your fee helps us continue our work to reach more people who can benefit from wilderness and llamas.

You can even organize a llama trek for your women's professional, church or work group as a fun and unique fund-raiser to benefit Challenge Adventures. We can suggest ways to promote your trek!
