Designed for pre-K – 7th graders, our (mostly) weeklong day camps introduce kids to the awesome power of outdoor adventure, teaching them rock climbing, mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, hiking and survival skills. Our multi-sport camps let kids try a different adventure activity every day, while our single-sport camps give them the whole week to focus on one sport.

As part of our day camp staff, you’ll be paired with another instructor to manage and mentor a team of no more than 13 kids, grouped by grade. Most days, you’ll drive your group to a local crag, lake or trail to take them on an adventure. (If you work with pre-K campers, your adventures will stay onsite.) Whatever grades you’re working with, whatever sports you’re teaching, every day presents fun, fulfilling opportunities to impart new skills, inspire new passions and have some adventures of your own.

Overnight Camp Snapshot

Avid4 Adventure’s overnight camp (otherwise known as Colorado Mountain Camp) is an immersive sleep-away experience for 1st – 12th graders. Our one- and two-week sessions happen at our seriously gorgeous campsites at Mt. Evans in Evergreen, Colorado and Windy Peak, near Bailey, Colorado.

Colorado Mountain Camp instructors work in pairs helming teams of 13 or fewer kids, grouped by age. You’ll live in cabins with your campers, drive them offsite for some activities during the day and, if you’re working with 4th – 11th graders, lead them on a character-building, multi-day wilderness expeditions.

Daytime at CMC is all about adventuring, nurturing and inspiring your team as they build confidence climbing, biking, paddling, ziplining, fly fishing, horseback riding and lots more (activity specifics depend on how old your campers are). In the evenings, you’ll take part in skits, games and other fun CMC traditions, helping your campers enjoy all that camp has to offer and building your own lasting memories and friendships.
