Thank you for an amazing 43rd summer at Telluride Academy!

Campfire Cook-Off

Overnight Program
AGES 8-10

Ready, Set, Cook-off!! Join us for this culinary challenge that celebrates the art of cooking over an open flame or on a grill in the great outdoors! Can you, along with your team, take an ordinary local camping food item and turn it into a tasty dish for the judges? No experience is necessary, just a curiosity for cooking. We will spend our days tasting and identifying new foods, learning outdoor cooking techniques from guest chefs and getting our hands dirty in locations from the farm, to the trail, to the camp kitchen. We’ll end the showdown with a final Campfire Cook-off. Are you ready for the judges?

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.
