One Expedition, Limitless Adventure
5th – 6th Grade Expedition Multi-Sport Camp

5th – 6th Grade Expedition Multi-Sport Camp

Designed for 5th – 6th graders of all experience and ability levels, our weeklong multi-sport expedition camp lets kids explore the diverse and dramatic landscape of Curt Gowdy State Park in Wyoming, taking on a range of adventure sports by day and camping under the stars by night. Located 24 miles West of Cheyenne, Curt Gowdy sits at the foothills of the Laramie Mountains, a gorgeous mix of lush meadows, low hills and striking granite crags.

After setting up a campsite that will serve as their home base for the week, campers (no more than 13 to a group) discover what the “multi-sport” in our multi-sport program really means. Namely, embarking on an different adventure every day—biking the park’s extensive trails one day, bouldering on its stunning crags the next, plus hiking, canoeing, white water rafting, archery and acts of environmental service—all the while building technical skills and fostering a deeper appreciation for the outdoors.

From cooking on camp stoves to sleeping in tents, navigating a canoe to negotiating tough terrain, practicing good communication to resolving conflict, expedition campers learn to meet countless challenges with intelligence and poise. It’s a confidence-building, life-changing experience that gives them the skills and independence they need for a lifetime of adventure.

White Water Rafting & Canoeing

Hiking

Mountain Biking

Bouldering

Archery

Camping

Campers will have a blast out on the water, taking to the park’s reservoirs for canoeing and traveling to nearby Cache la Poudre River for rafting. They’ll practice paddling techniques, learn safety and equipment basics and work together to navigate their crafts.

Our hikes get campers out onto the trails and into the varied landscape of Curt Gowdy State Park, teaching them about flora, fauna and the principles of Leave No Trace as they explore and gain respect for the natural world.

Whether they’re first-time bikers or regular riders, we get campers familiar with mountain biking technique, safety and equipment on Curt Gowdy’s 50+ miles of dedicated mountain bike trails. Campers may be divided into smaller groups based on biking ability.

Campers of all levels will practice skillful bouldering on the park’s smaller rock formations, learning how to tackle a series of “problems” (short sequences of moves) with a combination of balance, technique, strength and smarts.

Ideal for building strength and good sportsmanship, our archery instruction lets campers practice their technique and learn about equipment, safety and range commands as they let their arrows fly.

Campers will learn to maintain a campsite, setting up and breaking down their equipment, keeping their space tidy and cooking meals in the backcountry. They’ll play games during downtime and swap stories around the campfire, building deep, lasting friendships with their fellow expedition-mates.

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.

OUR APPROACH TO SAFETY
