Thank you for an amazing 43rd summer at Telluride Academy!

Pondo Paddle

Overnight Program
AGES 9-11

Surf’s Up Colorado style! Grab your paddles, PFD’s and passion for adventure and join the Pondo Paddle crew as they travel to the warm waters and remote shores of Southwest Colorado’s McPhee Reservoir. Deep canyons and Ponderosa Pine plateaus will be your stomping grounds for a multi-day “surfing” excursion at one of Colorado’s largest reservoirs. You will navigate your stand-up paddle board (SUP) across the fresh water seas in search of secret swimming coves and driftwood beaches. You will learn the ancient techniques of SUP’ing and play flat water games that will perfect your paddling skills. This is an aquatic adventure that will fill your days surfing in warm waters and your nights sleeping on water’s edge beneath blankets of stars.

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.
