Discovery Camp: The Adventure Begins

Denver – Washington Park – Discovery Camp

Three- and four-year-olds are ready for their first dip into outdoor adventure. Ready to experience our carefully balanced mix of adventure sports, outdoor education and creative pursuits.

In our Discovery Day Camp, pre-K campers experience small-scale versions of our signature adventure activities. With a camper to staff ratio of 6:1, they learn to ride on two wheels, paddle in canoes, climb on our rock wall, and go on short hikes all in the nurturing confines of our camp environment. They enjoy yoga, music and art activities as the perfect complement to their outdoor adventures, where the camper to staff ratio might be 7:1.

Throughout the week, campers are supported by highly qualified pre-K outdoor instructors who teach curriculum developed by early childhood educators. Our Discovery Camp is a giant first step toward developing technical skills, confidence and a love of the outdoors for life.

Our smallest campers wear harnesses and helmets designed specifically for their size as they find their footing on our 25-foot mobile rock wall, learning the basics of climbing techniques, equipment and safety.

The open water could never be more accessible to campers with Smith Lake across the street from our camp location. There, campers get comfortable using boats, paddles and personal flotation devices—all with the support and supervision of our qualified staff.

From biking beginners to pros on wheels, we get campers familiar with biking technique, safety, equipment and maintenance, either on their own bikes or with one from our fleet (which can accommodate campers of any size). We also help training wheel riders graduate to two wheels.

On a series of short hikes in Washington Park, campers learn about flora and fauna, catch bugs and butterflies, explore their surroundings through a magnifying glass and practice Leave No Trace principles as they start to build a better understanding of the natural world.

To round out the week, campers balance their adventure activities with creative pursuits including storytime yoga, art and music, learning about balance, self-expression and how to engage their bodies in new ways.

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.
