Have a great winter and we look forward to seeing you in June.


The theme for Work Week 2015 is Cabin Staining. Please bring your best staining clothing and an desire to use a paintbrush.




Work Week will be held at the Grand Teton Climbers' Ranch this year from Monday, June 1 through Friday, June 5. Work Week is an annual tradition at the Climbers' Ranch during which general maintenance is performed to prepare for the summer season. The ranch opens to the public on June 6. Work Week projects include clean-up of the cabins and property, staining cabins, minor plumbing and carpentry repairs, painting window, door, and screen frames, etc. Skill and experience are welcome but not required. Volunteers are served at least one generous meal each day, courtesy of the ranch. Work Week volunteers are also entitled to stay at the ranch for a period of time during the month of June. Begin your summer with June in the Tetons!

Work Week 2014 was a great success. Please join us in 2015.

Work week is an opportunity for volunteers to help prepare the Ranch for opening in exchange for some free lodging during the month of June. Each year volunteers—skilled and unskilled—donate their time to help with everything from routine maintenance issues (fixing leaky toilets, testing smoke detectors, and setting parking lot logs) to capital projects (building cabinets and staining cabins). To qualify for free lodging later in the month you must have worked each of the five days of work week.

Of course, work week is also about rekindling old friendships… and making new ones.

The 2011 Work Week was June 6 - 10. Read more about Work Weeks on the Friends of the GTCR page on on The Club's blog, Inclined.

"What a fantastic time at Work Week 2011! it's easy to become a lifer for the Ranch. Had I know about the Ranch last summer, I would have not crawled into the back of my truck to shiver at the back of the bagel shop in Wilson after enduring a torrential down pour and an earthquake coming off the Grand... a warm shower would have been sooooo nice... now I know better!"
