Send your child on one of Canyonlands Field Institute’s fun summer camps!
CFI offers fun and educational middle school or teen camps every summer to keep your son or daughter engaged, excited to learn, forging new friendships, and staying involved in their community. We have years of experience taking school groups out into the field and on our rivers, teaching them outdoor skills through stories, hands-on experiences, new skills, service projects, and simple ways to connect with and appreciate nature.
Explorer Base Camp
Every summer, CFI offers 2 sessions of our popular La Sal Mountains Explorer Base Camps – ecology for kids that want to combine active time outdoors and learning cool stuff about our forest and rivers! This is an exciting opportunity for kids entering 5th through 8th grades to participate in an awesome learning adventure during the summer months. Ecology Summer Camp is for kids who want to be active, have fun and learn about our amazing backyard the La Sal Mountains.
Youth River Skills
Get your kids entering 7th through 12th grades involved in ourYouth River Skills Camp where they learn to navigate whitewater rivers through a hands-on rafting and ducky trip with CFI’s experienced Naturalist Guides. In the heat of the summer, spend three awesome days paddling and rowing the classic “Daily” stretch of the Colorado River outside Moab.
Scholarships are available for children attending Grand County Schools. See camp description for details.
