Expedition Multi-Sport 5th – 6th Grade in Steamboat Lake State Park, CO

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 Steamboat Lake State Park in Colorado, taking on a range of adventure sports by day and camping under the stars by night. Located 27 miles north of Steamboat Springs, Hahn’s Peak serves as the backdrop of the spectacular, 2,820-acre Steamboat Lake State Park. Featuring marsh lands, quaking aspens, miles of trails, and breathtaking scenery, it’s a perfect spot for adventures. 

After setting up a campsite that will serve as their home base for the week, campers (no more than 13 to a group with 2 staff members) discover what the “multi” in our multi-sport program really means. Namely, embarking on an different adventure every day—biking the park’s extensive trails one day, plus standup paddleboarding, hiking, white water rafting and archery—all the while building technical skills and fostering a deeper appreciation for the outdoors. 

From cooking their own meals on camp stoves to sleeping in tents, negotiating tough terrain, 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.

The Week's Adventures

White Water Rafting

Stand Up Paddleboarding

Hiking

Mountain Biking

Camping

Teambuilding

Campers will have a blast out on the water paddling through small rapids. They’ll practice paddling techniques, learn safety and equipment basics and work together to navigate their crafts.

Campers will build core strength and good balance atop paddleboards as they play fun games, work on team building, master proper paddle strokes, practice rescue techniques and maneuver their boards through Steamboat Lake.  

Our hikes get campers out onto the trails and into the varied landscape of Steamboat Lake 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 Steamboat Lake State Park’s miles of mountain bike trails. Campers may be divided into smaller groups based on biking ability.

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

As they interact with their expedition-mates during the week—playing games, hanging out during downtime—campers will practice important interpersonal skills like communication, problem solving and teamwork.

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.
