Walking Mountains Science Center’s Summer Science Camps in Colorado allow youth to experience the wild places of the Eagle River Valley while nurturing their connection to the natural world through daily excursions outside. Campers investigate principles of ecology and develop an understanding of scientific concepts through fun, adventure, experiments, and exploration. All Summer Science Camps are age-appropriate and taught by qualified natural science educators that make learning safe and fun. Overnight camps take place at one of the historic 10th Mountain Division Huts.

Please note that camp ages are based on the grade your camper is entering in the Fall of 2024
