Adventure Camp Superior - 2nd to 7th - Day Camp

Our Superior Adventure Summer Camp transports 2nd – 7th graders out to authentic local settings for thrilling, fulfilling outdoor experiences. Whether they’re returning or first-time campers, every day is a different adventure—mastering mountain biking, hiking a trail, paddling a canoe or kayak—and every challenge is calibrated to their age and ability.

Grouped by grade range, campers build skills and confidence as they return to our program year after year. 2nd – 4th graders concentrate on getting comfortable with new activities, with plenty of support and inspiration from our staff and returning campers. Once they reach 5th – 7th grade, campers shift their focus to teamwork, mentorship and deepening their technical competence.

Led by the best outdoor instructors around, campers develop the know-how and lasting self-assuredness that propel them toward a lifetime of exciting and nourishing outdoor adventure.

MEET YOUR CAMP DIRECTOR

Katie Hopkins

What I love most about working for Avid4 Adventure is getting to be outdoors and helping kiddos unlock their passion for living active, healthy lifestyles. It doesn’t get better than that! I grew up playing outside with my cousins and that blossomed into my passion for summer camps and eventually my career in therapeutic recreation. We learn more with play than we do sitting around watching tv. I started going to camp when I was 11, going every year until I was a senior in high school, then spent that summer working at my childhood camp. Since 2013 I’ve worked at 4 different summer camps for all different kinds of kiddos and families. I’m excited to spend this summer as a Camp Director with Avid4 Adventure! So many people move to Colorado to experience all the incredible outdoor activities, and I’m no different. I am one of the lucky few who gets to turn their passion for the outdoors into their job. Seeing the world from a child’s eyes and getting to be silly and imaginative couldn’t be more fun. Recently, I’ve gotten into paddle-boarding in the summers! I am also an avid skier and a huge fan of camping. Being outdoors makes my heart happy. I am a big believer that nothing should stop you and your child from living a fun and active lifestyle, and I’m here to show you I can and will adapt in order to make sure your child has the best experience possible.

Why Sign Up For Multiple Weeks?

Do you remember that old TV show Blue’s 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 Blue’s 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.

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.
