Expedition Multi-Sport Colorado - 7th to 8th Grade - Expedition Camp

Designed for campers of all experience and ability levels, our weeklong multi-sport expedition camp lets kids explore local landscapes, taking on a range of adventure sports by day and camping under the stars by night.

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 a 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.

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.

The Week's Adventures

White Water Rafting


Mountain Biking

Stand Up Paddleboarding



During their day of white water rafting, campers will practice paddling through rapids, staying safe on the water and working together with their fellow rafters to navigate their vessel.

Our hikes get campers out onto the trails and into the varied landscape of the region, 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 mountain bike trails in the area. Campers may be divided into smaller groups based on biking ability.

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

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.

Throughout the week, campers will practice important interpersonal skills like communication, problem solving and teamwork. Through games during downtime, stories around the campfire and time alone reflecting, they’ll build confidence and comfort within the group and as an individual.

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.
