SUMMER FAMILY CAMPS

This camp is ideal for beginner families without any previous camping experience or very basic experience.
In this camp families will learn the basics of camping, what materials they need to go camping, as well as some outdoor activities that they can do on public lands in Colorado.
Families will stay in pre-made tents and cook food as a group.
At the end of this camp you will be given a guide with information on how to do outdoor activities in Colorado.

At this camp, families will experience a unique camp in Rocky Mountain National Park.
During this camp, families will explore the park guided by instructors on Saturday and learn how to set up a tent themselves. They will also be taught various applications which they can use to explore this and other parks on their own.
Families will have the opportunity to speak with the rangers and in some cases become Junior Rangers or watch a presentation by the rangers on a nature-related topic (this depends on the day and is subject to change).
Families cook their food individually so they learn to use camping stoves. Usually in teams of 2 or 3 families per stove.
We will end the day with a bonfire and some delicious s'mores.
On Sunday they will be taught how to make reservations for the national parks.
Camp will be packed up and you will be given more information about the park and its surroundings so your family can explore this wonderful place on their own.
