Spend your Early Release Day with the Colorado Mountain Club’s Youth Education Program (YEP)!

Capture the Climb: an interactive climbing journey.  We start by exploring the American Mountaineering Museum to learn about the pioneers of mountaineering throughout the world.  Activities include: museum scavanger hunt, learning about Mt. Everest, and more!   After being inspired by our learning we'll go climb on the AMC's indoor rock wall.

1:00-5:00p for 3rd-6th graders. YEP staff will facilitate pick-up from local elementary schools (Fairmount, Mitchell, Shelton) or parents can arrange to drop their children off at the American Mountaineering Center (AMC) by 1:30p. Pick-up from the AMC is at 5:00p.
