Adventure Day Camp

Give your child a week's worth of adventures all around the Moab area!

Canyonlands Field Institute welcomes your children to explore Moab with us this summer! Adventure Day Camp is a hand-on, fun opportunity for your child to adventure around Moab with CFI guides. This year, there will be two weeks of Eco-Splorers, and one week of Desert Dwellers. Campers will travel in air-conditioned vans to incredible locations including the La Sal Mountains, the Mill Canyon dino track site, Moonflower Canyon, and Professor Valley.

Eco-Splorers, Ages 6-9

Runs July 5-9 and July 12-16

Eco-splorers is a summer day camp designed to introduce your kids to the wonders of the outside world. The camp visits a different location each day, spending time learning, exploring, and experiencing various sites around the Moab area. Through fun, hands-on activities, your kids will immerse themselves within the outdoors. CFI campers develop key motor skills through crafts and games, increase their communication skills through teambuilding activities, and spend time moving around outdoors.

Register for the July 5-9 Session

Register for the July 12-16 Session

Desert Dwellers, Ages 9-12

Runs July 19-23

Desert Dwellers is a summer day camp designed to unravel some of the mysteries within the desert surrounding the Moab area. Who has lived here in the past? Who lives here now? To answer some of these questions, we will be exploring the ecology, archeology, and paleontology of the surrounding area through hands on games and activities. Your kid will develop commination skills through teambuilding games, and spend time moving about outside, while immersing themselves in the ancient past and intriguing present of Moab.
