Boundless Adventure

4th-6th Grade Overnight Camp Program

Entering 4th – 6th graders are ready to experience nearly everything Colorado Mountain Camp has to offer. These burgeoning adventurers spend their two-week session engaged in our signature outdoor sports—rock climbing, mountain biking, paddling and hiking—alongside other exciting pursuits like archery, zip-lining and a three-night expedition in the wilderness.

Whether campers are new to adventure sports or experienced outdoor athletes, our seasoned staff knows just how to meet them where they are, helping campers deepen their technical abilities and build confidence outdoors. When they’re not adventuring, campers have campfires to attend, skit nights to plan and games to play—in short, plenty of opportunities to thrive as part of a team and forge lasting friendships (and have a lot of fun in the meantime).

Campers entering 4th – 6th grade also take part in a camp betterment project, working together to leave the camp environment better than they found it, experiencing the power of giving back and satisfaction of working with their team toward a common goal.

Campers spend a full day at the peak on site at Mt. Evans, learning the ins and outs of climbing techniques and safety protocols from an experienced lead climbing instructor. They learn to set up equipment, tie knots, use climbing commands and belay each other as they take on climbs tailored to their ability level.

Accompanied by an experienced lead mountain bike instructor, campers take their bikes off site, learning biking technique, maintenance, trail etiquette, and how to fall before practicing their skills on the world-class trails in over 500 acres surrounding Mt. Evans.

Campers practice their paddling skills at Jackson Pond, learning a variety of strokes and rescue techniques, and taking on increasingly ambitious (and fun) challenges—like walking across boat bows or trying a handstand on their paddleboards — as their skills and confidence grow.

Out on Mt. Evans’ many trails, campers focus on understanding and appreciating the world around them, investigating plant life on the nearby trails and learning local history. They also learn about Leave No Trace, and leave camp with nationally recognized training in its principles.

On their three-night expedition, campers hike through Colorado’s backcountry and learn skills to launch them into a lifetime of camping—reading maps, pitching tents, hanging bear bags, cooking tasty meals, scouting the perfect swimming spot—as they become comfortable, confident explorers.

Campers build strength and sportsmanship skills on our on-site archery range, where they learn about archery equipment, safety and history, and practice shooting techniques and range commands.

Under the supervision of accredited guides, campers spend a thrilling half-day adventure speeding over the tops of pine trees. Located in a nature park with pine forests and mountain views, campers will learn about about zipline safety and equipment, and enjoy zipping from platform to platform.

Under the direction of our aquatics team, campers train in the art of fly fishing, learning techniques for choosing flies, casting, reeling in fish and removing hooks, before doing some fishing in THE trout-stocked pond.

Campers focus on teamwork all session long, using low ropes course challenges like traversing suspended cables with a partner, participating in trust falls and navigating a giant “spider’s web” to build trust, polish up their team’s communication skills and learn to work together to solve challenges.

Meet Your Director

Eric Rightor

I have dedicated my personal and professional life to the outdoors and I am sold on its power as a both a playground and a classroom. I am thrilled to be part of the team here at Avid4 and provide your child with an incredible experience here at Mt. Evans. For the past 10 years, I have been designing and leading overnight camp programs for kids, including at Camp Coniston, North Woods Camp for Boys, Pleasant Valley Camp for Girls, and lastly as the Executive Director at Camp Bauercrest. I have seen first-hand the power of the outdoors to teach, test, and transform kids into their best selves – confident, independent, and part of something greater than they imagined. While the activities are undeniably fun and the Mt. Evans location is gorgeous, the magic of camp is between these lines where friendships are formed, role models are made, accomplishments are celebrated, challenge is embraced, and moments last for a lifetime. I believe so strongly in our community here at Colorado Mountain Camp and can’t wait for you and your child to experience CMC for yourselves. I look forward to seeing you at Mt. Evans this summer!

“We wondered what magic the counselors were using on a kid who is usually reserved and unwilling to try something new unless he feels ready. We watched our son’s confidence bloom in front of our eyes! That is exactly what we were hoping for from this experience. Colorado Mountain Camp is a magical place!”
-Kate, parent of 4th – 6th Grade Overnight Camper

“My daughter made friends when it is often difficult for her to talk to others. She said she missed us, but she was so active and enjoying all of the fun that she didn’t have much time to miss us too much. She said that she was the youngest in her group, but she felt welcome by all. I just wanted to take a moment to thank the Avid staff, as there is no camp out there that I trust to take my daughter for two weeks. The happiness and adventurous spirit she returns with reminds me that she is not only okay, but better than when I brought her to camp.’

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.
