A Spectacular Mountains Environment for Outdoor Study and Adventure.

Our La Sal Mountain Base Camp’s spectacular 9,000′ alpine elevation environment provides the ideal setting for higher altitude exploration. Our comfortable temporary camp at Warner Lake Campground in the Manti-La Sal National Forest is nestled in aspen groves with spectacular contrasting views of canyonlands below and mountain peaks above.

Students camp in back pack style dome tents. CFI provides tents and all the necessities for a comfortable backcountry camp.

  • 12 – 22 participants (if you need to accommodate a larger group in a single trip we can accommodate up to 40 at our Professor Valley Field Camp).
  • Montane environment
  • Best seasons: June - September

Our desert ecology Canyon’s Edge Curriculum is adapted for the mountain environment but retains many of the key elements such as games and activities. Likewise, we adapt our  Professor Valley Field Camp Programs outline for the mountain environment.
