Program Overview: Avid4 Adventure is very pleased to be returning to Niwot Elementary to deliver the Outdoor Education Intensive for Kindergarten through 5th Grade students. The “Intensive” is an outdoor education, on-campus immersion program bringing four stations that students will rotate through during one full day. Coming to Niwot Elementary will be a portable rock climbing wall, a mountain bike skills course, a kayak paddle tank, and a Leave No Trace outdoor classroom. All of this is incorporated into a cohesive curriculum that is framed within a non-competitive and supportive atmosphere led by our experienced and professional staff. All specialized equipment is provided by Avid4 Adventure, as is all instruction and safety management. No previous experience or purchasing of specialized equipment is necessary on the part of the participants.

Each student will spend an entire day participating at the intensive. On their assigned day, students should report to their regular class, after which they will be divided into small groups and head outside to the field.
Daily Schedule(subject to modification):
Avid4 Adventure will provide all necessary outdoor and safety equipment. On your participation day please bring:
After School Parent & Sibling Program for one hour after the Avid4 Adventure program, the portion of the student body that participated that day is invited to bring their parents and siblings to the Intensive area to participate with them. Since the Outdoor Intensive must immediately move to another school, there will not be an after school program on the last day. Participants in the last day’s program are welcome to come to an after school program on any of the other days. This provides a chance for kids to show their parents what they have learned during their day at Avid4, as well as an opportunity for parents to get a few pointers from their kids as they try the activity! We ask that students only attend the after school program once. We highly encourage you to plan to attend this after school session. Parents or siblings that wish to try one of the activities will first be required to read and sign a Risks & Release Form and Indemnity Agreement. This is the same form that parents signed for their kids before the Intensive. This form will be available at the Intensive.
We will make every effort to conduct the program even in inclement weather. Weather is a very real part of every outdoor experience and thus can provide great learning opportunities. We have activity modifications if weather dictates.
Avid4 Adventure prides itself in offering creative and instructive recreational opportunities. From climbing and hiking to kayaking and biking, participants can experience a variety of activities. However, please remember that all adventure activities, including those offered by Avid4, include inherent and other risks. These risks come with the territory, and are part of any recreation and adventure opportunity your child may participate in. That is why at Avid4, we focus on running a quality program, to mitigate these risks and dangers:

At Avid4 Adventure we are outside playing, running, kayaking, hiking, biking and climbing every day. During the day, it is often the case that students will come home with a scrape or bruise due to the physicality of activities. This is simply the nature of learning outdoor activities. For a more detailed discussion, please visit our website page Our Approach to Safety. Here is dome detail; about the activities we do:
Rock Climbing: Kids will learn about techniques, precautions, equipment and history of the sport. Top-roped climbing will take place on an artificial climbing wall, always wearing helmets.
Kayaking & Canoeing: Our flatwater instruction program gives students a chance to learn about techniques, precautions, equipment and history of the sport. Our teaching progression emphasizes incrementally developing comfort with equipment and the environment in order to facilitate success experiences. PFD’s (life jackets) will be worn at all times.
Mountain Biking: Avid4 Adventure’s fleet of mountain bikes can accommodate any size student. We can work with all ability levels. Riders will not only learn technique, precautions, equipment and history of the sport, but also some basics of bicycle maintenance. Helmets are worn at all times
