Our specialized workshops for ages 10 and older integrate adventure, science, and art.  We head out to privately stocked lakes and property with gorgeous meadows, forests and endless opportunities for exploration.

What you’ll do
Monday—Hiking Club

John Muir put it simply….”climb the mountains and get good tidings…” We’ll hike the trails to discover our unique ecosystems and the tools we need to navigate it.  Join us to explore the magnificent Rocky Mountains.  Discover local flora, fauna, and views of the high peaks of the Rocky Mountains.

Tuesday—Fly Fishing Camp

Cast your line, practice the strategies for ecologically sound fly fishing. Learn from the experts to understand the natives and non-natives and what they are feeding on, and try to replicate invertebrates in the form of fly tying.  Fly fishing equipment and professional guide included.

Wednesday—Art with Juniper

We will be enjoying painting, drawing, clay and more out at Mud Lake with Jordan Morrow, aka Juniper!

Thursday—WildCrafting and Primitive Skills

Let’s head out to the woods to engage in primitive skills: shelter building, cordage, tracking and more!  Enjoy wildcrafting with local plants foraged from the land.
