Girls Adventure Camp Boulder - 8th to 9th - Day Camp

At Girls’ Adventure Camp, entering 8th and 9th graders dive into adventure sports and activities designed to spark personal growth, all set in the great outdoors. Over the course of five days in an encouraging, girls-only environment, you’ll master a range of outdoor skills, make new friends and discover all the amazing things you’re capable of.

Every day brings a different fun, exhilarating experience—rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking—and an opportunity to push your limits, whether you’re a first-time adventurer or an experienced athlete. You’ll also take on non-sports activities designed to help you identify your own best self, coming away with strategies for facing adversity, communicating honestly, resolving drama and embracing every part of your personality. You’ll learn a ton about who you are—and feel empowered to be that person.

After a week with our inspiring instructors, surrounded by a supportive community of girls, you’ll crack open a whole new well of confidence, fortifying you for a successful school year and lots of adventures yet to come.

Why Sign Up For Multiple Weeks?

Do you remember that old TV show Blues Clues? It was the most successful kids’ show of all time. Do you remember that book that your child insisted on reading over and over again? How could you forget it? Why was Blues Clues so successful and why did your child NEED to re-read that book? Because repetition promotes learning, growth, and empowerment.

Based on our experience (and a bunch of brain science), we know that multiple weeks of Avid camp will benefit your child – it will result in greater skill development, increased self-confidence, higher levels of risk assessment/environmental awareness, and an improved ability to connect socially with others.


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.
