Ranch Hands

Overnight Program
AGES 11-13

Embark on an immersive journey through the diverse landscapes of Western Colorado’s farms and ranches! Our exploration kicks off with a deep dive into sustainable agriculture at the high-altitude, solar-powered Tomten Farm. On Tuesday, we’ll pack up the van and journey to Durango for our double overnight! We’ll tend to vegetable gardens, care for farm animals and engage in enlightening workshops facilitated by Turtle Lake Refuge. Turtle Lake Refuge, an organization dedicated to promoting sustainable practices and the wisdom of nature, will teach us the importance of maintaining community health through nutritious foods. During our overnights, we will source local ingredients for delicious farm-to-table style meals. Get ready for an unforgettable ranch experience!

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.
