Breckenridge Outdoor Camps

Wild Child Wilderness Camp (Ages 7-12)

Take a walk on the wild side with the Breckenridge Recreation Department, as we spend time hiking and exploring around the wild places of Breckenridge.  Being on a mountain trail exposes children to wonders they never thought they would experience.  Hikes are made to be especially kid-friendly as we stop for trail-side activities and games.  Topics include map and compass use, trail signs, camouflage, animals, plants, backcountry cooking, Leave No Trace principles, and more. Along with planned educational camp activities, we build in time every day for the kids to simply play in the woods.  A chance to escape from our busy schedules to experience unstructured time in nature can do wonders for a child's social, physical, and emotional development! 

Participants meet at the climbing wall in the Rec Center at 7:55am each morning of camp.  Be sure to bring a rain jacket, sunglasses, sunscreen, snacks, water, hiking shoes/boots, and a camera!  No camp on Wednesdays.

Please complete the online Outdoor Programs Waiver prior to your session.

Campers registered for this camp can enjoy a full day of fun by joining Breckenridge Mountain Camp for the afternoon. Click here for more information on half-day BMC.  Campers may also attend the BMC field trip on Wednesday.

High Altitude Heritage Camp (Ages 7-12)

Join the Breckenridge Recreation Department as we journey through time to discover why people are drawn to this high alpine haven in the Colorado Rockies. We start our adventures by exploring the earliest days where Native Americans and great buffalo herds filled the valley. Our explorations continue with an introduction to the fur trappers and traders. The next stop is a firsthand experience with our rich mining heritage. Finally, we share what we love about the mountains, and what draws us to them today. Days include game-based activities and interactive hiking destinations throughout our environment and its wild places.

Campers meet at the Breckenridge Recreation Center climbing wall at 7:55am. Each participant should bring a backpack, plenty of water, sunscreen, snacks, hiking shoes/boots, rain gear and extra layers to each day of camp. No Camp on Wednesdays.
