Youth Adventure Day Camp continues to grow in size each summer and we are looking forward to hosting more campers this year! Run by our 100 Elk Outdoor Center, this secular program offers campers a variety of fun and exciting outdoor adventure activities that challenge them to grow and learn respect for themselves, others and nature. Campers are grouped in age-appropriate cohorts: 2nd-3rd, 4th-5th, 6th-8th and 9th-12th grades.

Youth Adventure Day Camp is open to all members of the greater Buena Vista, CO community, and to any Christian Science families from out of town who are able to arrange their own accommodations. Spanish speaking staff are available to work with Spanish speaking campers.

Although we are confident that Day Camp will remain COVID-free, we have in place several precautionary measures to ensure the safety of our staff and participants (hand washing and sanitizing, campers will remain in their same group throughout the week).

Programming runs Monday through Friday from roughly 9am – 4pm with staggered starts. Parents/guardians drop their campers off every morning and pick them up every afternoon. Campers need to bring their own lunch and water bottle each day. (Morning and afternoon snacks are provided.)*

*Note: Campers joining us from Lake County will be picked up and dropped off by our Day Camp staff at a communal meeting point in Leadville.
