Dance, Dine, March or Match!

This summer marks Telluride Academy's 40th year of exploring wild places, creating memories that last a lifetime and challenging young people to step outside, step up and speak out! 40 years of "dirt don't hurt", challenge by choice and lots and lots of free play! Throughout these 40 years, we have amassed an incredible community of students, families, staff and supporters. 2020 is a year to connect, reflect and celebrate this community! 

Whether you are a first year family or you attended the first Telluride Academy camp in Wendy Brook's backyard, we hope to share this milestone summer with you! Mark your calendars and stay tuned for more details on these exciting events as well as ways to support Telluride Academy's campaign to ensure the next 40 years are as exciting, accessible and AWESOME as the first 40!
