Each student will spend the entire day off-campus participating in the program during their regularly scheduled school day. The program will take place at a local reservoir close to campus. During the program, your student will have a chance to canoe and kayak on the reservoir, as well as mountain bike OR climb on an artificial climbing wall. Please make sure to arrive on time. Students should report to their regular class, after which they will load onto a bus and head for the reservoir.
Avid4 Adventure will provide all necessary outdoor and safety equipment. On your participation day please bring:
We will make every effort to conduct the program even in inclement weather. Weather is a very real part of every outdoor experience and thus can provide great learning opportunities. We have activity modifications if weather dictates. If the Intensive needs to be delayed or canceled due to severe weather, we will have a notice indicating such that can be accessed by calling 720-249-2412 x10 after 6:30 AM.
Avid4 Adventure prides itself in offering creative and instructive recreational opportunities. From climbing and hiking to kayaking and biking, participants can experience a variety of activities. However, please remember that all adventure activities, including those offered by Avid4, include inherent and other risks. These risks come with the territory, and are part of any recreation and adventure opportunity your child may participate in. That is why at Avid4, we focus on running a quality program, to mitigate these risks and dangers:
Please contact us if you have any further questions, or would like to review our risk management plan.
At Avid4 we are outside playing, running, kayaking, hiking, biking and climbing every day. During the day, it is often the case that students will come home with a scrape or bruise due to the physicality of activities. This is simply the nature of learning outdoor activities. For a more detailed discussion of the spectrum of risks involved in outdoor activities, please refer to our Risks & Release Form, or talk with the Avid4 Program Director. Here is a bit more detail:
Kids will learn about techniques, precautions, equipment and history of the sport. Top-roped climbing will take place on an artificial climbing wall, always wearing helmets.
Kayaking & Canoeing
Our flatwater instruction program gives students a chance to learn about techniques, precautions, equipment and history of the sport. Our teaching progression emphasizes incrementally developing comfort with equipment and the environment in order to facilitate success experiences. PFD’s (life jackets) will be worn at all times.
Avid4adventure’s fleet of mountain bikes can accommodate any size student. We can work with all ability levels. Riders will not only learn technique, precautions, equipment and history of the sport, but also some basics of bicycle maintenance. Helmets are worn at all times
