Thank you so much for your interest in Yampatika’s winter programs. Our public, winter programs have ended for the season.

We are still offering limited, private programs for the remainder of the season.

Please fill out the form below if you are interested in a private program.

Thank you to everyone who helped to make this a successful season despite all the challenges.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, program size may be limited based on local and state guidelines. Participants may be asked to wear a mask before and after a program. In addition, participants will have their temperature checked before the start of the program.
