Keystone Science School: Colorado day and overnight camps, backpacking experiences and a giveaway!
posted by: Mile High Mamas
Do you want to give your child a summer experience they’ll never forget? Enroll your child in the Summer of Connection at the Keystone Science School! Our summer programs range from on-campus day camp to week-long backpacking experiences in the mountains of Summit County, Colorado. Regardless of scale, our programs teach a variety of skills such as leadership, teamwork, curiosity, critical thinking, and more. Not to mention, it’s just about the most fun you can cram into a week!
We also encourage all campers to get out of their comfort zone while at camp, whether that means summiting a mountain, making a new friend, or just getting out of the car on the first day. We are proud to change lives and build communities each summer and even more excited to be able to offer safe and healthy programming during the time of COVID-19.
Our programs are listed below. We are currently holding a Camp Giveaway to win a magical week-long session of Overnight Camp, Discovery Adventures, or Discovery Expeditions. Enter now! The winner will be announced via email on March 29, 2021.
