Camp: Cal-Wood’s Summer of Edventure

Camp: Cal-Wood’s Summer of Edventure
We have been dreaming, planning and building a great summer at Cal-Wood. We’ve taken the best of the last 35 years and updated it for a new generation. We are proud to finally announce….
The Summer of Edventure 2018!
This summer, we are focused on what Cal-Wood does best – that magical combination of original experiential education and true, authentic, Colorado mountain adventure in our remote and breathtaking setting near Jamestown, Colo. Add wholesome, traditional camp fun, an amazing staff and modern youth development principals, and I promise that this summer will offer something very special that you and child will cherish for a long, long time.

What’s new for 2018:

Expanded Age Ranges!  We are proud to provide age-appropriate camp experiences to campers K-12. Campers will be split into co-educational “trail groups” where the activities and lessons are aimed at specific age and developmental stages.
NEW Introduction Programs. Look for the Intro to Cal-Wood Base Camp Program and the Intro to Tent Camp Program. These have been requested for years and they are finally here. Now children  apprehensive about a longer stay or new to sleepaway camp have exciting 2-night options designed to build confidence and self-esteem.

Adventure Day. Both Tent and Base Camp programs will now feature an exclusive Adventure Day program including high ropes, canoeing, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, mountain biking and more! Stay tuned. More details to come on these new additions to the Cal-Wood Camp experience.

Cal-Wood will utilize the P.R.E.S.S. Model:

  • PURPOSE: Everything at Cal-Wood is intentional. Campers will learn about themselves, each other and the natural world around them.  
  • REALationships: Our staff are incredible. Most of them work at Cal-Wood year round. They are wise, focused, creative, fun and above all else – safe. The relationships campers build with adults and fellow campers is a strong bond they will carry for a long time.
  • EPIC: We happily strive to takes things up a notch, to provide experiences you cannot find anywhere else. These moments are unforgettable and feel like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live life to its fullest.
  • Self Esteem & Self Advocacy: We want our staff and campers to feel good about themselves and their accomplishments. We check in on these feelings daily, providing opportunities for positive recognition, celebration and genuine, real connections.
  • Skill Development: Our many activities are not meant to be theme park attractions that they experience and move on. They are seeds to shape the skills campers want to master. Be it archery, fishing, climbing, mountaineering or creative arts – every camper can leave Cal-Wood with a new or renewed interest in developing soft and hard skills.
