1st & 2nd Grade Summer Camps



Week-Long Day Camps

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 different sites. While most of the places we travel to are within Eagle County, we do go as far as Leadville, Glenwood, and McCoy to access sites with relevancy to certain camps.

We will be driving to sites in 15-passenger vans during camp. In accordance with Colorado State Law, If your camper is under 8 years old, they must bring a booster-seat to camp with them.

We also offer two-day camps that stay on the Walking Mountain’s campus for students entering K-1st grade. Click here to learn more!
