Transform Your Child's Summer Break at Stone Canyon Outdoor EdVentures

February 28, 2022

At Stone Canyon Outdoor EdVentures, we believe that kids are meant to play outside and that friendships are built around a campfire. We believe that s’mores are a food group and students should step outside their comfort zones. We believe that adventure is waiting around every corner, and summer is a time when kids can grow into confident and daring individuals.

Stone Canyon transforms how kids experience summer break! We offer day camp for ages 6-9, overnight camp for ages 9-15, and backpacking adventures for ages 13-17.

Stone Canyon Summer Day Camp (Ages 6-9)

We foster an environment where campers can immerse themselves in their curiosity, develop friendships, and discover new skills. With a combination of structured activities and free time to explore, campers will make memories to last a lifetime!

Each day campers will get an opportunity to explore our 99-acre property by hiking through the woods, examining critters in our creek, and getting up close and personal with nature. With the guidance of our staff, campers will unplug from technology and plug into the natural environment.

Stone Canyon offers over 20 activities, crafted and designed to get campers outside and PLAY! Play encourages kids to test their own limits, be social, and have fun.

WHO: Boys and girls ages 6-8 years old
SESSION DATES: July 11-15 and July18-22
COST$435 per week, lunch and snacks included

NOTE: Stone Canyon is hoping to offer round-trip transportation with drop-off and pick-up at Douglas County High School in Castle Rock but has not confirmed Transportation at this time. Stay tuned more information.

Stone Canyon Overnight Camp (Ages 9-15)

Our co-ed week-long overnight camp creates an environment where campers can make friends, learn new skills, and build self-confidence. Through dedicated staff and a well-crafted program, we aim to provide each camper with an unforgettable experience.

With over 30 different daily activities to choose from, kids can build on an existing skill or step outside of their comfort zones to try something new. All campers will have the opportunity to participate in adventure activities (high ropes, zip line, archery), sports (soccer, ultimate Frisbee, basketball), creative arts (crafts, tie-dye, painting, acting/improv), and so much more!

Our campers will also spend part of their day developing the skills for Leadership, Empathy, Attitude, and Determination (L.E.A.D.) to be a positive influence in their families and communities.

WHO: Boys and girls ages 9-15 years old
SESSION DATES: June 12-18, June 19-25, June 25-July 2, and July 3-9

Stone Canyon Backpacking Adventures (Ages 13-17)

The Stone Canyon Summer Backpacking Adventure is for Middle and High School Students. High schoolers can participate in a seven-day Adventure and Leadership course for ages 15-18. Middle school students ages 12-14 can attend a four-day intermediate course or three-day beginner course.

Leadership is at the heart of all we do. This elevated experience is designed to build upon the leadership skills your student already has and to prepare them for the many adventures life has in store. By stepping outside of their comfort zones and overcoming new obstacles, students will gain confidence, build character, and learn invaluable life lessons.

All our staff are first aid and CPR trained. Our lead instructor is an experienced wilderness guide and certified Wilderness First Responder. The group will carry a DeLorme inReach Explorer, which will allow for tracking and emergency communication if needed.
