Camp Y-Noah provides hands-on, outdoor environmental education classes, encompassing science and nature. Children learn to use a dichotomist's key while identifying tree species and discover the effects of a drought on a habitat in our ecosystems class.
Join our staff of trained facilitators for Low or High Adventure on our Challenge Courses and get involved with our well-rounded programs, such as horsemanship classes at the ranch, canoeing on the lake or nature trail discovery hikes. The Camp Y-Noah staff tailors your group's experience to compliment any curriculum. Certain elements have age limits, but we may be able to modify certain aspects to fit your needs.

“I'm so impressed with how my son handles group conflict. He stays detached and listens to resolve the problem. I know he didn't learn that from me. He said, ‘Mom, I learned that at Camp Y-Noah. Everything we did, we did as a team. That's how we got things done.’ These are skills he will take with him into his adult life.”

These games are done on the ground and teach students the advantages of working as a team. The staff starts simple and then works toward harder challenges to make the students think and use each other for help.
This course helps reinforce the concepts of teamwork. Relying on ‘games with a purpose,’ our staff will lead the students through a variety of challenges that they must work together to solve. There is a possibility of being at most a foot off the ground. We ask that students are at least 8 years old to participate on the Low Ropes Challenge Course.
Rock Climbing Wall
A climbing challenge for any age group. The Wall is a wonderful introduction to High Adventure challenges for younger students, or a celebratory experience for non-intensive teambuilding.
In addition to our 25-foot climbing wall, this 9-element course is perfect for working on goal setting! The open design allows for several students to climb at one time. Challenging even for High School students, we ask that the students be at least 11 years old to participate in the High Ropes Course.
Our newest addition to our high adventure courses! This structure is 50 feet tall and there are many different ways to climb it. We ask that students are at least 13 years old to climb the Tower.
