Custom Courses

We are specialists at designing customized courses.  Custom courses may incorporate a series of different activities, focus on a specific skill set, have a unique length or teaching structure or support additional goals such as service projects or fundraising. No matter what your specific needs are, IWLS brings the highest level of safety, technical mastery, world class instruction, and professionalism to all of our courses. Below are a just a few examples of custom groups and courses that IWLS has facilitated.
