About

An action-packed, two-week adventure in the Colorado Rocky Mountains

Experience all that a Colorado summer has to offer as you backpack through fields of wildflowers, make new friends from all over the country, and are awed by the natural world around you. If you have completed seventh or eighth grade and are ready to challenge yourself in new and exciting ways, the High Peaks Adventure is for you. The group begins their adventure with a backpacking trip in the towering Rocky Mountains of central Colorado. During the trip, participants learn the basic skills needed to camp and travel comfortably in the backcountry, all while playing endless games, laughing like crazy, and eating really good food! Returning to campus, the group gears up for three days of fun, tackling some of Colorado’s best-known sports: rock climbing, whitewater rafting, and an adventure ropes course, zip line included!

No experience is necessary for High Peaks Adventure, only a willingness to try new things!

What differentiates us from the many summer adventure programs in the West? We are an accredited school, and the High Peaks Adventure employs the same academic and wilderness principles we use to teach our high school students. At the same time, we have designed the course for middle school students and place a heavy emphasis on fun and personal growth.
