Day Program
AGES 7-9

If you like to play in the woods and build forts, then join us as we construct all types of structures and shelters from branches, stones, mud and other primitive materials we find in the forest. Every day, we’ll be outdoors honing our survival skills and gaining insights into how hunters, pioneers and animals craft their shelters. After plenty of hands-on practice, we’ll put our fort-building abilities to the test with a team challenge to determine which young pioneer can craft the most imaginative structure. Bring your creativity and be prepared to build, learn 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.
