We Couldn't Do It Without YOU

Another exciting year has come to a close and we can’t say thank you enough to our volunteers, sponsors and supporters – we couldn’t have done it without you! We appreciate the countless hours and gifts you’ve selflessly contributed in support of Outdoor Lab. Because of you, 5,347 sixth grade students, 1,000 high school leaders and 40 interns were able to partake in this wonderful program. Because of you, we’re able to continue our mission of ensuring EVERY student in Jeffco is provided the opportunity to attend Outdoor Lab. Because of you, the future of our beloved program is brighter than ever. Here’s to another year filled with unforgettable memories and continuing the lifetime trail that Outdoor Lab provides! 

New Facilities, New Experiences!

We have some exciting news to share… the greenhouses are near completion at Mount Evans and Windy Peak! THANK YOU to all the Outdoor Lab supporters. Because of your support, we’re able to provide incredible facilities like this to continue creating innovative educational experiences for Jeffco students. Construction began last fall and we’re thrilled to say students will be learning in both facilities in no time!

Chapman Orthodontics

Dr. Chapman, our community’s favorite orthodontist, wanted to wish you a happy summer break! Did you hear that there is a “flat Dr. Chapman” (flashback to the Flat Stanley days!) available to take on your summer adventures? If this doesn’t represent how much Dr. Chapman cares about his patients, then we don’t know what will.

Dr. Chapman is proud to support and sponsor local community charities and efforts that impact the students of Jefferson County. Dr. Chapman and Chapman Orthodontics became a Community Supporter Sponsor of Outdoor Lab in January and has been an amazing asset to Outdoor Lab and our Foundation.

Stop by Dr. Chapman’s office located at 8852 W. 38th Ave, Wheat Ridge, CO 80033 to say hello, understand all their services and pick up your very own “flat Dr. Chapman” to take on all your summer adventures.  Be sure to bring him to Open House this fall!
