Rocky Mountain Adventure Summer Camp

Discover the world around you through hands-on exploration.  These camps are dsigned to teach useful science in a fun and participatory way.  Our camp motto says it all: "The worst day in the field is better than the best day in the classroom."

 

There is no better way to learn about geology than from the top of a volcano, or study water pollution from the middle of a stream. Field trips, experiments, and group projects are the heart of the this exciting program that will leave a lasting impression on all participants.
