Colorado Gives Day

Colorado Gives Day is Tuesday, December 10th!

What’s more ‘Colorado’ than giving back?  What's more Jeffco than Outdoor Lab? Click on the Polaroid images of students at Outdoor Lab below to learn how your donation makes an impact. 


Community First Foundation, Firstbank and several other sponsors have come together to create a Colorado giving-focused day that has become a Colorado tradition. Your contribution to Outdoor Lab Foundation MATTERS because our 7,000 kids can’t learn science in the wilderness without YOU.

Colorado Gives Day is more than just a day as Outdoor Lab is more than just a week. Robb Gneiser, Principal at Windy Peak Outdoor Lab, told a story just the other day that really hit home for our Board of Directors and staff. The internship offered through Outdoor Lab truly allows young leaders in the community to become stewards of the environment and themselves in ways that cannot be done in a traditional classroom. They find themselves in ways that only time at Outdoor Lab can lead them. An intern, who has attended over 13 different schools in his lifetime, sat with Windy Peak staff and peers, and told his story. He expressed that he had never felt like he had a stable home. He ended by saying "Outdoor Lab is the first place that has felt like home."
