Adventure Camp: Into the Great Outdoors

Denver Lowry – Adventure Camp

Our Denver Lowry Adventure Camp transports 2nd – 7th graders to authentic local settings for thrilling, fulfilling outdoor experiences. Whether they’re first-time campers or Avid4 Adventure experts, every day brings something different—mastering mountain biking, maneuvering a paddleboard, hiking a trail, paddling a canoe or kayak—and every challenge is custom-fit to their age and ability.

Grouped by grade range, campers build skills and confidence as they return year after year. 2nd – 4th graders focus on getting comfortable with new activities, with plenty of support from our staff and returning campers. Once they reach 5th – 7th grade, campers concentrate on teamwork, mentorship and deepening their technical abilities.

Led by the best outdoor instructors in the business, campers develop the know-how and lasting self-assuredness that propel them toward a lifetime of exciting and inspiring outdoor adventure.

Why Sign Up For Multiple Weeks?

Do you remember that old TV show Blue’s Clues? It was the most successful kids show of all time. Do you remember that book that your child insisted on reading over and over again? How could you forget it. Why was Blues Clue’s so successful and why did your child NEED to re-read that book? Because repetition promotes learning, growth, and empowerment.

Based on our experience (and a bunch of brain science), we know that multiple weeks of Avid camp will benefit your child – it will result in greater skill development, increased self-confidence, higher levels of risk assessment/environmental awareness, and an improved ability to connect socially with others.

WE TAKE SAFETY SERIOUSLY

While no outdoor adventure is totally risk-free, we work hard to keep your kids safe. Every activity starts with a discussion about the risks involved -- what they are, how to prevent them, how to respond if something goes wrong -- so kids learn how to approach challenges with intelligence and skill.
