Located on 525 acres of stunning open space, Mt. Evans is Colorado Mountain Camp’s new campus for entering 1st-6th graders. With rock climbing crags, mountain biking trails, and a pond for kayaking, stand up paddleboarding and more, this location is ideal for our younger campers to build confidence as they immerse themselves in outdoor adventure. Watch our slideshow and read below to learn about the features of this beautiful location, and visit our FAQs page for answers to common questions.
The Peak at Mt. Evans
This pristine peak is ours alone while camp is in session. Avid4 Adventure has private access to this top-notch climbing site, an ideal spot to get kids comfortable climbing on an authentic, uncrowded crag.
Mt. Evans is covered in miles of trails, ideal for hiking, biking and learning. Campers can investigate plant life on the lush Forestry and Ecology Trails, learn the history of the area along the rocky crags and old mining sites of the Geology Trail or practice beginning bike skills on the Low Ropes Trail—and that’s just what’s on site.
On site at Mt. Evans and easy to navigate, Jackson Pond is a perfect place to teach younger campers the basics of kayaking, canoeing and stand up paddleboarding, and to let our 4th – 5th graders practice their fly-fishing. It’s also where campers of all ages enjoy logrolling, working both independently and together to stay upright on a floating log—and have a blast falling off.
Designed to give kids a low-key place to gather after full days of adventuring, our recreation area gets campers of all ages together for activities like volleyball, gaga pit, soccer, kickball, Ultimate Frisbee, 9-square, slacklining, dance parties and more. It’s the perfect spot for unstructured downtime.
Archery & Slingshot Range
Our archery and slingshot range is where younger campers hone their hand-eye coordination with slingshots, while those in 4th and 5th grades hit the mark with bows and arrows.
Overnight Camp Site
Our youngest campers trek to this on-site campground for their one-night expedition. While it’s only located 1 mile away from our main facilities, it has a remote, backcountry feel for an authentic campout experience.
