Rio Grande National Forest - Beaver Creek Camp
Youth Conservation Camp
A three day, two night experience in June that your child will look forward to year after year. Our groups are facilitated by professionals from a variety of natural resource management agencies & organizations from across the San Luis Valley.
Ages 8-12 yrs
All small groups focus on activity-based learning and build on each other. First time campers are encouraged to start with Mud Buds as their basic introduction to natural resources. Each group is amazing fun!
Choose from one of the following Small Groups:
Like Hunters' Safety, this group will learn real life skills for outdoor activities. Recreation & stewardship go hand in hand!
(Soil & Water)
Identify trees, take hikes, and get up close and personal with our diverse, beautiful forest. Led by the US Forest Service!
Great for first time campers. Activities introduce the building blocks of our natural resources!
Led by Colorado Parks & Wildlife, this engages kids with the habitats, eating habits, and diversity of Colorado wildlife.
For a healthy ecosystem, pollinators, ungulates, and other organisms weave a complex web. Water, soil, & plants host critters of all shapes & sizes!
Due to ongoing instructor issues, we will NOT offer Hunters' Safety through camp. Please see the CPW website for a list of available classes in your area!
