Fun Filled Summer Camps

In the Vail Valley, there are several summer camp options for kids, even if it is just for a day. For the more adventurous, there is horseback riding and ziplining, but there are plenty of options for the more curious minds who enjoy science and nature instead.

  • Beaver Creek’s Young Explorers Day Camp offers fun for all ages. From swimming to zip line tours, they have tailored experiences for every age group: Discovery for 5-7-year-olds, Adventure for 8-12-year-olds, and 5 Star for the ultimate thrill-seekers aged 5-12. Head to their website to learn more and book your camper’s adventure.
  • Giddy up! Cordillera Equestrian Center’s Horse Camps activities include riding lessons, horse-related games, activities, and mixed media art projects for four fun-filled days. Multiple sessions are offered June through August for youth ages 7-15.
  • Looking for something more relaxed? Try a storytime at one of the local libraries to encourage the development of early literacy (offered in English and Spanish). The libraries also offer a variety of craft activities and movie nights.
  • When schools are out, Mountain Recreation’s Summer Camps ensure your kid(s) have safe and enriching programs available to them from half-day activities to overnight wilderness trips in the White River National Forest.
  • Vail Recreation District Youth Summer Camps feature hands-on learning about the natural environment and have adventure-packed days including rafting and caving, arts and crafts, plus golf, gymnastics, ice skating and more.
  • Walking Mountains Science Center has summer science camps that allow your kiddos to experience the wild places of the Vail Valley while nurturing their connection to the natural world through backyard explorations.
