Day Program
AGES 5-6

The Telluride Academy Explorers program is where the fun begins! Young participants will spend a week exploring the Telluride region with our early childhood instructors. These programs are designed with our youngest adventurers in mind with a schedule that allows for morning art projects and afternoon access to backyard hiking trails. Each Explorers program is designed by our instructors and will have an exciting and unique theme. No two programs are the same! Students will paddle across high alpine lakes, rock climb, visit waterfalls, tromp through creeks and create artistic masterpieces. The Telluride Academy’s long standing Explorers program plants the seeds of exploration and adventure in a safe, fun and engaging environment.

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.
