Boulder Camps + Classes

Family Camps in Colorado

I spend a lot of time looking at all of the amazing camps and classes that are available for our kids, and man… I get jealous. There are so many incredibly educational, entertaining and just plain awesome opportunities! That’s why I’m so excited about the idea of family camp – a camp experience that parents can enjoy with their kids. If you’re ready to enjoy some adventure as a family this summer, check out these programs:

  • Cal-Wood – Spend a weekend camping with your family in our beautiful 1,200-acre Ponderosa pine forest! Experience hiking, fishing, and a wide range of other outdoor learning opportunities such as archery, survival skills, and astronomy. Team building games and campfire songs are part of the weekend too. Set up your own tent or use one of ours. Our staff can accommodate all levels of outdoor experience. Don’t let the summer go by without a memorable camping trip at Cal-Wood! Cal-Wood website
