Transportation

For safety reasons, we can no longer provide our popular shuttle service from Boulder. For that reason, please note the following:

NederRangers (ages 5-6) will be based out of Wild Bear Nature Center.  Campers will be outside most of the day, but will be able to access the bathrooms and spaces within the nature center, as needed.

Wild Naturalists (ages 7-8) please drop-off and pick-up your camper at Wild Bear Nature Center.

Wild Adventurers (ages 9-12) please drop-off and pick-up your camper at Wild Bear Nature Center.

$70/day. Generous scholarships and multiple children discounts available. Wild Bear is a CCAP (state child care assistance) provider.

Programs will continue to run in the case of inclement weather! Wild Bear Nature Center provides  large spaces with dedicated bathrooms to hold programs indoors when needed.  Masks are worn at all times when inside, and the separate rooms for each age group provide enough space for physical distancing.  Crafts, stories, games and science will all be integrated into indoor activities when weather does not permit outdoor activity.
