Adventure Camp: Into the Great Outdoors

Washington Park – Adventure Camp

Our Adventure Camp transports 2nd – 7th graders out to local settings for authentic outdoor experiences. Whether they’re returning or first-time campers, every day is a different adventure—mastering mountain biking, stand up paddleboarding, hiking a trail, paddling a canoe or kayak—and every activity is leveled to their age and ability.

Grouped by grade, campers build confidence and skills when they return to our program week after week and year after year. 2nd – 4th graders concentrate on getting comfortable with new activities, with plenty of support from our staff and returning campers. Once they reach 5th – 7th grade, campers shift their focus to teamwork, mentorship and broadening their technical competence.

Led by our highly credentialed outdoor instructors, campers develop the know-how and self-assuredness that launch them into a lifetime of exciting outdoor adventure.

Places We Go: Cherry Creek Reservoir, Rocky Mountain Lake

Our flat-water instruction program gives campers practice and confidence with paddling equipment and safety, getting them comfortable with the basics before taking on deeper skill building in canoes.

Places We Go: Chatfield State Park, South Valley Park, Hildebrand Ranch

Whether they’re first-time bikers or regular riders, we get campers familiar with biking technique, safety and equipment (plus some bicycle maintenance basics) out on local trails. Campers can bring their own bikes or borrow from our fleet, which accommodates campers of any size.

Places We Go: Mathews Winters Park, Windy Saddle Trail, Red Rocks Park, Apex Park

Our hikes get campers out into nature and back to basics teaching them about the flora and fauna they encounter and the principles of Leave No Trace as they explore and gain respect for the natural world.  

Places We Go: Chatfield State Park Gravel Ponds

An increasingly popular sport, Stand Up Paddleboarding is a hit with campers of all ages. Campers will build their core strength as they learn to balance on their boards through a series of games and challenges. Our instructors will also teach proper strokes and rescue techniques.

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.
