Secondary Adventure Camp (Grades 7-10)
This 5-day Summer Adventure Camp for middle and high school students will include 4 days exploring different trails and one day paddling on flatwater. Students will have the opportunity to connect with like-minded friends, explore the rugged terrain of the San Juan Mountains, and define themselves before heading back to school. In addition to learning about about plants, flowers and local forests, camping basics and Leave No Trace ethics, kids will gain leadership and communication skills while hiking among peers and SJMA Naturalists.
- Campers will be asked to maintain 6 ft. of social distancing when reasonable, wear face-masks, and hand-wash/sanitize frequently
- No shared food or communal eating spaces
- Families will be expected to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms
- Daily temperature checks will be conducted by camp counselors
- We ask that parents please have conversations with their campers about social distancing, using the restroom outside, and the expectation of long(ish) periods of physical activity
- We will transport the campers to the trailheads each day but ask that they wear masks for the entire car ride. Parents can meet us at the trailheads if you would prefer to transport your child.
