Designed for entering 1st graders who are eager to experience the fun of overnight camp but aren’t ready for a full week away, Mini Camp offers a nurturing, eye-opening introduction to everything Colorado Mountain Camp has to offer. Over the course of four days and three nights on site, our supportive staff helps these adventurers-in-training get comfortable with our camp environment, activities and traditions, giving them a solid foundation for future overnight adventures.
During the day, campers will try their hands (and feet) at adventure sports tailored to their size and skill level, gaining proficiency and confidence in biking, climbing, kayaking and more. In the evenings, they’ll experience the camaraderie of cabin living and take part in the games, songs and ceremonies that make overnight camp so much fun.
With just the right mix of hand holding and confidence building, excitement and downtime, teamwork and self-reliance, kids have an unforgettable mini adventure, paving the way for many more summers at Colorado Mountain Camp. Learn about our Pin Program!

I have dedicated my personal and professional life to the outdoors and I am sold on its power as a both a playground and a classroom. I am thrilled to be part of the team here at Avid4 and provide your child with an incredible experience here at Mt. Evans. For the past 10 years, I have been designing and leading overnight camp programs for kids, including at Camp Coniston, North Woods Camp for Boys, Pleasant Valley Camp for Girls, and lastly as the Executive Director at Camp Bauercrest. I have seen first-hand the power of the outdoors to teach, test, and transform kids into their best selves – confident, independent, and part of something greater than they imagined. While the activities are undeniably fun and the Mt. Evans location is gorgeous, the magic of camp is between these lines where friendships are formed, role models are made, accomplishments are celebrated, challenge is embraced, and moments last for a lifetime. I believe so strongly in our community here at Colorado Mountain Camp and can’t wait for you and your child to experience CMC for yourselves. I look forward to seeing you at Mt. Evans this summer!
