All Paid Parent & Youth Camp

August 19, 2015|Posted in: Child and Youth, Communication, Fun!, Parenting, Summer Camps

I’d like to invite you to attend an overnight parent & youth camp coming up on September 12th-13th. The youth program department has funded this camp on your behalf as an opportunity for parents and their kids (ages 9-18 recommended, but younger kids may participate based on parental discretion of age appropriateness for this type of activity) to bond through an outdoor camp experience. This is also a great chance to introduce your kids to camp if they have never attended one prior.

Bus transportation is provided from the Family Program Office (address in my signature line below) to the meeting site which is at Dinosaur Lots in Golden. Check-in is at the Family Program’s parking lot between 6:30-6:45am and wheels turn at 7:00am sharp. For the registration form, click here.

The Cottonwood Institute is excited to collaborate with Sanborn Western Camps and Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument to offer our Weekend Adventure Overnight to families and youth who have parents currently serving in the military. During this course, we will camp out under the stars in the Southern Colorado Front Range. Students and families will spend time in nature, playing games, relaxing, and hanging out. We will also learn about camping and survival priorities, tips, and techniques, primitive and modern fires, and complete an environmental service project to help be a caretaker of the land. We will practice nature awareness activities, leadership and team building skills.

During the trip we will also have the chance to visit Florissant Fossil Beds with one of the rangers there and get some great stories and knowledge about this amazing place. Get ready for a fun filled weekend for all ages!

Space is limited and is first come, first served until full. To grab a spot/s, simply RSVP via email to me with the names, ages and branch of service of all family members wishing to participate. I will follow up to confirm your reservation which at that point you can proceed with filling out the application which is due back to me NLT 25 Aug.
