Family Mountain Adventures

Join us for IdRaHaJe’s Summer 2020 Family Mountain Adventures!

Due to the dynamic landscape of current COVID-19 regulations, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our typical overnight summer programming. We still want to minister to you and your family, so we’re happy to announce our brand-new Family Mountain Adventure packages.

Choose from one of 20 options for participants ages 3 and above. IdRaHaJe staff will guide you through daytime, classic camp adventures while focusing on Biblical lessons and Christian fellowship.

Who can sign up?

Family Mountain Adventures (FMA) are designed for families!  This may be your actual family, your neighborhood, your church or youth group, or friends that are like family. The only family members we don’t allow are the furry kind; please leave all pets at home!

Each package will be limited to 10 total people and each group must include one supervisory adult (18+). Group members can choose one of three participation levels on most packages:  Full-Package, Meal Only (this is designed for supervisory adults who don’t want to complete the activities) or Under 3 (this is only for siblings who are 0-2 in age). Any “Under 3” participant can come for free but will need to be supervised by an adult from the group during activities-please pack snacks and lunch for these little ones. We require at least 4 Full-Package participants to guarantee a package. Some all day adventures require full participation from all group members.

Due to the health and safety of all guests and IdRaHaJe staff, adults supervising children under 3 will be asked to remain at the activity site and follow directions provided by IdRaHaJe staff. We will not be able to accommodate children who are 3+ to register as “Meal-Only” participants for packages designed for older participants.

There are two types of groups: public or private. To book a private package with a pre-formed group you will need at least 4 Full-Package participants, or you will be asked to pay extra. If you don’t have 4 Full-Package participants and don’t want to pay extra, you can sign up as a public group. Public groups are willing to combine with other smaller parties who requested similar public packages.  If you want to view current packages open to the public, sign-in to our online registration portal and click through to “Step 2 of 6”.

When are packages offered?

IdRaHaJe offers FMA packages every day except Sunday morning and Wednesday. The adventures will begin June 1st and will run until August 8st.

How do I reserve a package?

Once you are familiar with our package options (see list of options below), click here to schedule your adventure. On the request form, be prepared to select your package requests and preferred dates. There will also be a space to make special requests for each package.  We will do our best to honor your requests but cannot guarantee any custom-made packages.

You can schedule up to five (5) separate packages per form. Give us 24-hours to process your request, verify your selection and send you all the information to register your group, sign waivers, and pay. We will do our best to honor your selections but cannot guarantee next-day packages or public groups under 4 people. If you want to view current packages open to the public, sign-in to our online registration portal and click through to “Step 2 of 6”.

Additional Information

All packages require a mandatory health-check and questionnaire upon arrival. Guests, whether participating or not, must have completed the online registration process which includes a standard waiver, Public Health Acknowledgement and Disclosure and basic emergency medical information. All guests are requested to wear masks; where social distancing cannot be maintained masks will be required.  IdRaHaJe staff are fully vetted, trained, and certified in first aid and CPR. Staff will follow current government regulations on mask wearing.

All packages include access to our IdRaHaJe shops, the Canteen & Uncle Paul’s Outpost, where snacks, drinks and souvenirs can be purchased after the scheduled activities. Make sure to come prepared for your Family Mountain Adventure by packing appropriate clothing, footwear, rain gear and a water bottle. Review our FMA Packing List which outlines additional required items. IdRaHaJe will provide all technical gear which will be disinfected between uses. In addition, we will follow all recommendations for cleaning, hygiene and health provided by CDC and our local health department. If you would like to discuss any of IdRaHaJe’s procedures or protocols, please feel free to call our office at 303-838-5668 or email us at info@idrahaje.org.
