Why Choose Our Programs:
Our instructors are insatiable outdoors experts with serious safety and skills training. They’re also talented teachers who know how to connect with kids and challenge them just the right amount.
Our programs evolve as kids grow, from age 3 all the way to 17. We start by getting kids comfortable with environments and gear designed for beginners, then take them out to try their skills on real rocks, trails and bodies of water.
Our seasoned team of outdoor experts runs top-notch, highly acclaimed summer camps, accredited by the American Camp Association and named among Colorado Parent’s Top 5 Sports Camps.
We do everything in our power to keep kids safe, but we don’t pack them up in bubble wrap. Instead, we teach them to take well-communicated, calculated risks so they learn to approach challenges with intelligence and skill. This practice of sound judgement translates to all areas of their lives.
