This is a nature-based, outdoor-education camp where kids make friends through adventure, challenge and exploration. Campers swim, learn archery and go hiking. Your kiddos will explore the natural land of Colorado, mountains made of granite, the four native evergreen trees and the many streams, lakes and reservoirs that connect us directly to our natural environment. Campers will also learn about the state’s varied wildlife, such as mountain lions, bears and big horned sheep. This camp will help children efficiently and mindfully move through the outdoors by learning important navigation skills and practicing Leave No Trace principles.
