Walking Mountains’ 1st/2nd-grade summer science camps are the perfect introduction to the outdoors for your child! All camps are age-appropriate and explore a variety of scientific topics while fostering a love of the natural world through local trail explorations. These camps are for children entering the 1st or 2nd grade in the fall.

During our weeklong day camps, campers will experience the wild places of the Eagle River Valley while nurturing their connection to the natural world through daily excursions in our summer camp vans to local trails.

*We will be driving to local trails throughout the Eagle River Valley in 15-passenger vans during our day camps. In accordance with Colorado State Law, If your camper is under 8 years old or under 60 pounds, they must bring a booster-seat to camp with them.
