Programs operated by Flying Deer include wilderness adventures for women, weekly wilderness mentoring for boys, single gender adolescent rite of passage programs, and co-ed programs for homeschoolers.

Flying Deer Day is taking place June 21 from 11 am to 5 pm. It’s an annual community celebration for all ages, with live and silent auction, BBQ, Olympic Games, silent auction and special live auction event, nature stations, egg toss, herbal cream-making, and more!
