Intro to Backpacking

About Intro to Backpacking

Intro to Backpacking is a 6-day youth adventure that explores the wonders of Summit County, Colorado, tailored specifically for beginners. Your kids will be immersed in the White River National Forest for a backpacking trip, where they will enjoy stand-up paddleboarding while experiencing the great outdoors. Your 5th to 7th graders will learn crucial outdoor skills such as tent setup, meal preparation, water filtration, and backcountry hygiene, looking to ensure an educational but memorable introduction to backpacking.

During the height of summer (usually June through August), high temperatures wreak havoc on humans who are not too keen on warm temperatures. However, survival is possible!
Take a look at our top picks for awesome waterparks and pools to keep you and the kids cool during the summer months in Denver.
