Cheyenne Camp

Ages 6 – 8: July 14 – 18
Experience the prairie like never before as you spend each day immersed in life at an 1837 Cheyenne Indian camp. Build your own tipi, craft your own arrows, cook fry bread over the campfire, paint a story hide with yucca brushes, find soap underground and make your own rope. Face daily challenges like learning how to use sign language to trade with other tribes and have fun practicing your archery skills and Cheyenne games. Discover how the Cheyenne relied on the bison for many of the things they needed (even water bottles and diaper powder!).

Outdoor Skills

Ages 9 – 12: July 14 – 18
Do you have what it takes to survive the harsh environment of the short-grass prairie?
Practice finding a shelter, mapping and orienteering, tracking, building a campfire, archery and more. We will draw on examples from nature and indigenous cultures to learn how to survive in periods of extreme drought, wind and sun on the grasslands.

Preschool Day Camp  - Prairie Safari

Ages 4 – 5: July 28 – August 1
Monday through Friday; 9am – 11:30am
Just like the Savannah’s of Africa, the prairies of Colorado are teeming with life.  We will put on our safari hats and vests, and use our binoculars to explore the animals and plants of the prairie.  Your young explorer will create lasting memories on our various expeditions to get up close and personal with the wildlife on the prairie.
