  1. Sack lunch and a snack packed in a bag with your child’s name on the outside.

Nature of Activities

At Avid4 Adventure we are outside playing, running, kayaking, hiking, biking and climbing every day. During the day, it is often the case that students will come home with a scrape or bruise due to the physicality of activities. This is simply the nature of learning outdoor activities. For a more detailed discussion, please visit our website page Our Approach to Safety

Weather Contingencies

We will make every effort to conduct the program even in inclement weather. Weather is a very real part of every outdoor experience and thus can provide great learning opportunities. We have activity modifications if weather dictates. If the Intensive needs to be delayed or canceled due to severe weather, we will have a notice indicating such that can be accessed by calling 720-249-2412 after 6:30 AM.

Safety

Avid4 Adventure prides itself in offering creative and instructive recreational opportunities. From climbing and hiking to kayaking and biking, participants can experience a variety of activities. However, please remember that all adventure activities, including those offered by Avid4 Adventure, include inherent and other risks. These risks come with the territory, and are part of any recreation and adventure opportunity your child may participate in. That is why at Avid4 Adventure, we focus on running a quality program, to mitigate these risks and dangers:

  • We hire staff that is proficient and tested in their area of instruction and trained in first aid and CPR.
  • We have developed a risk management plan to monitor & address risks and activities in our programs.
  • We inspect all of our equipment regularly.
  • We precede activities with a talk about potential risks and how to avoid or minimize those risks.
  • We have staff to participant ratios that provide for individualized attention and constant group management.
  • Participants are oriented to the concept that safety is a top priority, and each participant becomes a member of the safety team. This increases hazard awareness as well as personal responsibility.
  • Avid4 has written activity protocols to promote consistency and address inherent risks.
  • Avid4 programs are age and ability appropriate. We believe that it’s much more important to have a great time than it is to reach the top.
