2021 Outdoor Adventure Summer Camps in Denver
posted by: Mile High Mamas
While many camps had to close their doors in 2020, Avid4 Adventure found a way to offer adapted summer camps and meet the unique needs of campers and families. By the end of the 2020 summer season, Avid4 Adventure served nearly 8,500 kids with the help of over 250 staff in three states—California, Colorado and Oregon. There were no known cases of COVID-19 among campers and only 4 among staff that were traced to activities outside of Avid4 Adventure. All 4 cases were contained and did not spread to any other staff or campers as a result of our COVID-19 protocols. In 2021 we will be improving COVID-19 protocols to keep campers and staff safe and continue leaning on support from local public health departments.
Outdoor Adventure Summer Camps in Denver
This summer, we are so excited to offer even more summer programming and provide kids with what they need most—time away from screens, invaluable outdoor experiences, and the ability to safely connect with new friends and trusted role models in person. Our 2021 programs include:
Back by popular demand! Camp at Home brings the adventure to your private group of up to 4 campers. An Avid4 Adventure instructor will guide your kids through fun activities like outdoor cooking, shelter building, navigation, biking, hiking and more. This two-week camp conveniently takes place at trails, parks, and open spaces near your home and even in your own backyard.
Our signature Day Camps are back! This summer, campers can choose from two-week multi-sport or one-week single sport adventures. Groups deepen their outdoor skills in rock climbing, canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, biking, and hiking. Kids gain a deeper appreciation for the natural world while having lots of fun in the process!
After not being able to run in 2020 due to the pandemic, we are extra excited to welcome back Resident Camps in 2021! Programs have been carefully adapted with COVID-19 precautions in mind. In addition to exciting adventure sports, campers build confidence, gain independence, and develop leadership and teambuilding skills. Between skit nights, campfires, and fun games, kids and teens create lasting friendships and lifelong memories.
Our Expedition Camps are an experience like no other! During this week-long camp, groups visit some of the most stunning and undiscovered outdoor areas. By night, campers practice outdoor cooking, tell stories around the campfire, and sleep in tents under the stars. By day, campers focus on a multi-sport, mountain biking, paddling, rock climbing, or backpacking experience building confidence and unforgettable memories along the way. Expedition Camp is perfect for kids and teens craving a genuine outdoor experience in a small-group setting.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been incredibly challenging for kids. They have had their worlds turned upside down, unable to do the things that were once normal and time spent indoors, in front of screens has increased astronomically. Getting outdoors, connecting with other kids and trusted role models may be more important now than it has ever been before.
At Avid4 Adventure day and overnight camps, our experienced instructors empower kids of all ages (pre K – 12th grade) and skill levels to adventure outdoors. Kids gain a deeper appreciation for the natural world and the confidence and technical skills to choose active, outdoor lifestyles.
