Climbing Miners

Overnight Program
AGES 9-11

Mountains are what brought the first prospectors to Telluride in the 19th century, and they are what keep people coming back in the 21st century! Our Climbing Miners camp will explore the inner depths and uppermost reaches of this area’s famous ranges. From Telluride to Ouray, students will learn about the area’s geology, explore mines built over a century ago, pan for gold and eat meals made famous by Colorado miners! Participants will also get to build their climbing skills through bouldering, top-roping, slacklining and knot-tying. Get to know the San Juan mountains inside and out during our Climbing Miners program!

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.
