Exciting News from Our Community Supporter Sponsor

Avid4 Adventure Resident Overnight Camps are not your typical sleep-away camp. Alongside the campfires and silly songs, campers experience the transformative power of adventure, igniting a lifelong passion for being active outdoors. At two Resident Camp locations, Mt. Evans and Windy Peak, 1st – 12th graders of all experience levels—from total first-timers to seasoned experts—bike trails, paddle lakes, climb crags and strike out on overnight backpacking trips. Campers live in cabins at Mount Evans (1st – 6th grade campers and 11th – 12th grade Staff-in-Training) or Windy Peak (7th – 11th graders), setting off on outdoor adventures from there. With the support of our experienced instructors, campers build confidence, practice good judgment and learn to intelligently assess risks as they take on new challenges. Save $50 on any overnight camp session with the Early Bird discount @AVID4 ADVENTURE - expires January 25, 2019!
