Forts & Foraging

Day Program
AGES 6-8

This time of year, the San Juan region is bursting with hidden gems. This camp is designed to teach campers to connect with all the fruits the land has to offer and learn the things we can do with them! Over the course of the week, we will pick berries, make natural found-object arts and crafts and construct all types of structures and shelters from branches, stones, mud and other primitive materials. Bring your imagination and come ready to build, learn, explore and play!

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.
