EXPERIENCE WHITEWATER RAFTING: ARKANSAS RIVER

Designed specifically as a Colorado Young Teen Camp, this classic Colorado adventure is a perfect introduction to the beauty and challenge of a Colorado summer. We jump right in with two days of whitewater rafting through the world-famous Browns Canyon! We navigate fun and exciting rapids with our professional guides, paddling past magnificent peaks and camping beside the river.

LEARN TO ROCK CLIMB: COLORADO

Learn to rock climb in the mountains of central Colorado! With instruction tailored to participants of all ability levels, we scale magnificent granite cliffs and challenge ourselves in a thrilling yet safe environment. Professional climbers teach us the essentials of this awesome sport which builds incredible skills and personal confidence. After our full days of climbing, we enjoy some much deserved relaxation in the Mount Princeton hot springs! We celebrate our first success on Bold Earth's Colorado Young Teen Camp.

HIKE THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS

Learn the basics of backpacking and camping as we spend three days in the Collegiate Peaks of Colorado. Blue skies, clear lakes and stunning views abound during this quintessential Colorado Middle School Program. We learn backcountry skills, topographical map navigation and Leave No Trace ethics while exploring pristine mountain lakes, tumbling waterfalls and the hike to the top of a 13,000 foot mountain!

LEARN TO MOUNTAIN BIKE: CRESTED BUTTE

Our multi-sport middle school colorado camp concludes with two days of mountain biking led by professional guides in Crested Butte! We ride trails suited for all skill levels amidst a landscape of Aspen trees, summer wildflowers and snow-capped peaks. Later, we give back by completing a community service project on the very same trails that we biked.
