Youth Outdoor Education Program
Inspiring confidence and academic achievement through outdoor education since 1999
Our Youth Education Program has proven success in providing multidisciplinary education linking Colorado Department of Education model content standards with Colorado's greatest natural resource: the mountains.
We bring the mountains to students with camps and field trips that teach mountain weather, avalanche science, physics of rock climbing, altitude physiology, conservation, and a variety of other topics.
Bringing the mountains to students
Providing positive group learning environments
We provide a positive group learning environment where youth interact with adult volunteers and instructors to learn life skills such as team-building and leadership, helping to prepare them for a successful future.
“While I was in the mountains, I realized how beautiful it was. Over where I live, there is mainly just a lot of barren land and few large trees. In the mountains there are tons of beautiful forests and rivers and and lakes. Everything there is just pure nature,and it also makes me realize just how important preserving these natural features are.” – Jerry Madlock, program participant from Denver School of Science and Technology.
