Summer 2021

Schedule & Forms

Schedule

  • Mountain Adventures is offered June 14 - August 20, 2021, Monday through Friday from 9:00am - 4:00pm.
  • Drop Off at 9:00am in Camp CB, located in the Whetstone Building (14 Snowmass Road) across from the conveyor lifts.
  • Pick Up at 4:00pm in Camp CB, located in the Whetstone Building (14 Snowmass Road) across from the conveyor lifts.

Late Policy 

Please note, our programming is complex and requires our participants to be dropped off on time and at the Camp CB drop-off location. Every participant is required to have a Parent or Guardian sign-in for each activity day, unless stated otherwise on sign up forms. This is required by our State of Colorado Licensing agreement. No exceptions are allowed. In addition to the sign-in requirements, we do not accept participants who are late for offsite activities. It is best practice to have all participants together from the beginning of all activities to cover safety rules, guidelines and expectations for the day. This best practice benefits the instructors and sets up participants for success and safety. If participants are late and the activity has left the Camp CB drop-off area, participants will be charged for that day’s activity and will be unable to participate.

Program Overview

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.

Please note: A daily health screening will be required for all activities.

What to Bring

The weather and climate of our high-altitude environment are not to be underestimated!

Exposure to the sun is extreme, and temperatures can change dramatically over the course of the day. Please make sure your child is ready for a day out in the elements. Please have your child come prepared with the following:

  • Day pack with the following in it.
  • Bag Lunch
  • Sunblock
  • Water bottle
  • Sunglasses
