Program Overview and Registration

Crested Butte Program Overview

Mountain Adventures For Ages 7-14

2019 Mountain Adventures Registration now open!

Gear up for an adventure of a lifetime with our Mountain Adventures program! Our program is fully state child-care licensed and also permitted with the BLM and US Forest Service in the Gunnison National Forest. This summer day recreation program is for children ages 7 to 14 and is based in Mt. Crested Butte, Colorado. Explore the Gunnison Valley Mountains while rafting rivers, paddleboarding lakes, climbing crags, hiking trails, or with a fly-rod in hand!  *Note: Parents must provide lunch.

Do you have a passion for mountain biking? We offer programming on over 30 miles of downhill and cross-country trails right out our front door. We cater toward all ability levels of bikers from beginner to advance. Each participant will be assessed and placed in a group based on riding ability.

Our mission is to provide opportunities for personal growth and connection to the environment through safe, educational, and fun adventure-based activities. We provide quality outdoor adventure experiences for residents of the Crested Butte area as well as summer visitors from mid-June through August. We believe that children grow and learn best in a supportive, nurturing environment in which participants feel safe to take on personal challenges. Mountain Adventures practices Leave-No-Trace ethics and Challenge-By-Choice learning.

Multiple activities are offered each day and your child must select one activity per day. Availability for each activity is limited, and is filled on a first come-first served basis. Activity is chosen at time of registration.


Remember to book early as activities are subject to availability.
