We have great rock climbing right on-site at Mt. Evans, offering climbing for all levels across a variety of locations including Chipmunk Mountain, Rowan’s Castle, Baklava Boulder, and Baskin Robbins! They will learn the basics of commands, equipment, and safety before we teach proper technique and progression as their proficiency grows.
Campers learn flat-water skills on site in Jackson Pond, where we help them incrementally develop comfort with the equipment and their environment through fun games and challenges. They gain experience with kayaking and practice paddling, water safety and rescue techniques, building balance and confidence on the water.
Grouped by ability level so they’re challenged just the right amount, campers learn the biking techniques and bicycle maintenance skills necessary for riding on our single track dirt trails. Whether they’re first-time riders or have plenty of biking experience, every camper gets out on our on-site trails to practice riding, managing obstacles, gliding, banking, and braking.
We enjoy over 500 acres at Mt. Evans to explore on the miles of trails we have on property. We teach what all hikers need to know about being out on a trail—proper etiquette, what to wear, group awareness, and environmental briefings —as they start building respect for the outdoors. While on the trail, campers also learn and practice the Leave No Trace Principles from our instructors through fun games and thoughtful discussion.
Often the culminating experience for our youngest campers, our one-night camp out takes campers to spend a night in the wilderness. They work together to set-up the campsite, treat water, cook meals—all skills they can take with them on future camping and backpacking trips.
Campers love to challenge themselves and build teamwork on our low ropes Challenge Course. It’s the perfect training group for the group to develop communication skills, patience, empathy and self-confidence with one another.
A crowd favorite, we teach the fun of stand-up paddleboarding and help campers get comfortable balancing on their board, learn paddle strokes, practice rescue techniques, and play games to better their skills on the water. Stand up paddleboarding is loved by many for its ease of entry, level of challenge, and amazing fun on the water.
