Alpine Architects

Day Program
AGES 5-7

Our NEW Alpine Architects program is specially designed for campers who are always tinkering, building and engineering. Each day we will focus on a new form of nature construction- from forts, to dams, to planes, to boats! Students will be encouraged to let their creative and technical minds collide to design new structures each day, complete with bonus challenges like using only found objects for adhesives or rerouting river paths with only rocks! We’ll start each morning practicing our blueprint and sketching skills before we venture into the many natural construction sites the beautiful San Juan mountains have to offer.

Telluride Academy's Overnight Policy

Our talented instructors work hard to combat student homesickness on overnight programs. For many students, this experience might be their first time camping or away from home! In the days leading up to the overnight(s), the instructors have positive conversations with the groups to get them excited and prepared for their overnight adventures. This dynamic gets interrupted when a student is picked up early from their overnight. For this reason, we can not accommodate early pick-ups, unless in the case of an emergency. If your child does not want to attend the overnight, or if you have prior commitments that require early pick-up accommodations, we ask that you consider choosing a day program instead. Please call our office with any questions or concerns.
