Youth Adventure Day Camp 2020
Two one-week-sessions of awesome outdoor adventure activities, in age-appropriate tracks, for elementary, middle and high school campers.
July 6-10 & July 13-17
New for the summer of 2020 only, we are offering a Youth Adventure Day Camp program at the 100 Elk Outdoor Center. Comprised of two one-week sessions, campers of all grades will enjoy a balanced variety of outdoor adventure activities in age-appropriate groups (2nd-3rd, 4th-5th, 6th-8th and 9th-12th grades). We’re excited to bring you this unique summer camp experience in a manner appropriate for the current conditions and regulations.
Youth Adventure Day Camp 2020 will be open to all members of the greater Buena Vista, CO community, including Leadville and Salida. Note: All campers who do not live in the Salida, Buena Vista and Leadville area must agree to self quarantine for 10-14 days prior to coming to camp. Please call Linda at 719.395.2468 if you have questions. Spanish speaking staff will be available to work with Spanish speaking campers. We will be taking all appropriate COVID precautions (hand-washing and sanitizing, staff will wear masks, campers will remain in their same group throughout the week) and will do so in a loving environment free from fear.
100 Elk Youth Adventure Day Camp 2020 will be offered in two sessions: July 6-10 and July 13-17. Our mission is “Revealing the Possibilities Within,” and all of our programs will be geared towards expanding each camper’s sense of self, community and the environment while they have tons of fun and make new friends.
Programming runs Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm with staggered starts. Parents/guardians will drop their campers off every morning and pick them up every afternoon. Campers will need to bring their own lunch and water bottle each day; morning and afternoon snacks will be provided.
