Youth Education Program
The Colorado Mountain Club’s Youth Education Program (YEP) provides active-learning through adventure education. YEP uses an experiential approach to connect youth with their local surroundings to make learning relevant and fun by utilizing Colorado’s greatest natural resource: the mountains.
Schools and Groups
YEP provides multidisciplinary education linking Colorado Academic Standards (CAS) with mountain education. Using an experiential approach YEP courses and camps are designed to present real-life examples of science, math, geography, history, and art in nature.
