Welcome to the wonderful world of fantasy! In this program we will immerse ourselves in a magical week at the High Camp School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to learn all things necessary to become fully fledged witches or wizards. Accessed by a short trek into the backcountry, students will live in a massive mountain lodge that is fully equipped with a kitchen, lounging areas, wood burning stoves and cozy sleeping quarters! The High Camp Express will drive us to the trailhead where we take an enchanting 2 mile backpack to the School. We’ll each have to carry our personal belongings and staples for our grand feast. We will attend potions class to learn about the herbology of the San Juan mountains, find the mythical creatures that lurk beneath Sheep Mountain, study astronomy, dive deep into sroties of the stars and cast enchanting spells.  In addition to our mystical lessons, we’ll enjoy soaking in the wood burning hot tub and sharing fireside stories. Bring your favorite magical tail and a sense of curiosity as we dive into the world of magic.
