Northern Colorado Program


Our Core Programming, or as we like to say, our sweet spot is:

helping families with middle and high school students build and strengthen their relationships while learning lifelong recreation skills. Our programming is structured in 12 to 15-week sessions in the fall and spring and runs in three-week Ventures. A Venture focuses on one traditional outdoor recreation activity and is a minimum of two hours in length. Activities include fly fishing, spin fishing, fly tying, archery, shooting sports, camping and survival, and orienteering. The programs are run in the evening, between 5:30 and 7:30, and require that a parent or significant adult participate with each youth attending. We also provide trained mentors to work with a parent who has multiple students attending or when a parent is unable to attend regularly.
