50+ Colorado locations to continue the adventure

Group gamesJust because camp is over, doesn’t mean the adventures have to stop

Avid4 Adventure summer camp is over, but I’m guessing your child is still bursting with stories to share.  Maybe your campers want to go back to a memorable place they went during their camp week or maybe they want to introduce you to a trail where they had an awesome experience.  If your kiddo is like mine, on one random Saturday morning, you can count on him saying, “I want to go biking where we went with Avid4 Adventure,” but he won’t have any recollection of the location’s name – even when we play the “does it sound like” or “was it near” games.

We know you have favorite local spots for outdoor activities, but we thought you’d like to know where your campers went to experience their adventures.  So, grab the kids, bikes, paddles, backpacks or whatever and head out to our camp activity locations!  What are you waiting for?

Locations by camp

Boy, campers went to a ton of places!  The list below is long, but it’s broken down by camp locations, so if you want to stay in the vicinity where your kiddo went to camp, just find their location.  Of course, we hope you branch out and explore, too!
