Earth Force

Overnight Program
AGES 9-11

Protect the beautiful ecosystems that sustain Telluride through exploration, education and action! All across the local valleys, rivers and mountains, students will be teaming up with local non-profits for an array of environmental education opportunities. Students will learn about Telluride’s environmental history from its beginnings in hard rock mining to today’s forest and watershed health restoration projects. They’ll learn how this small valley’s past has shaped today’s environment and hear about current scientific efforts to better understand our forest and watershed health. When we aren’t busy learning about how to save the planet, we’ll participate in traditional Telluride Academy activities such as SUPing, climbing and hiking. Our Earth Force program is a sure way for students to build a lifetime of passion for planet protection!

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.
