Camp Telluride

Day Trippers

Our classic Camp Telluride program has been a backbone of adventure for Academy students for 39 years! These four day excursions will follow unique instructor-made themes and will have students exploring the near-reaches of our incredible valley! Throughout the week, students will participate in rock climbing, stand up paddle boarding, scavenger hunts, nature hikes and more! Each CT adventure will also participate in an artistic workshop catered to the program's unique theme AND one specialist activity (yoga, science, etc). Each CT Adventure will be a unique program experience with rotating instructors, students and activities throughout the summer!

Pedal Progressive 
Bikes Make It Better

Whether you're a "slayer of the single-track" or an inspired beginner, our Pedal Progressive programs will create a space for you to "progress" as a mountain biker! Utilizing local trails and expert instructors, these four day programs will spend a large portion of each day in the saddle. With the ability to organize riders by age and ability levels and within the landscape of small group settings, riders will get personalized instruction, play creative skill building games and have a bike rodeo overnight during a local campout! Riders will also enjoy a day of rock climbing or stand up paddle boarding!
