E-CAMP is our program exclusively for students in grades 6-8! We go on outdoor adventures, develop outdoor skills and spend time getting to know ourselves and friends a little bit better. E-CAMP runs in the summer, fall and spring and each section incorporates various activities aimed at giving students positive experiences in the natural world, building a community and working on personal development.

Fall 2017 E-CAMP
This fall, E-CAMP students will spend two days gaining outdoor skills that will be put to the test during our overnight camp out. Each day of E-CAMP (other than the overnight campout, October 27-28) runs from 8:30am to 3:30pm and is $15 per child. The campout will run from 6pm Friday, October 27 to 11am Saturday, October 28 and will cost $30 per child. Drop off and pick up for all events will take place at our East Drake site. You can register individually for each fall program, but we highly encourage students to sign up for every program date, as this will encourage community-building and group-bonding.

You will learn how to track and identify wild animals, fly cast in the Cache la Poudre River, and safely navigate unknown terrain. Then you will work with your peers to complete a series of challenges using your new skills. And don’t forget what you’ve learned, it will come in handy during the overnight camp out!

Get fired up for your second round of outdoor skills…literally! We will practice using bow drills and flint and steel to light a camp fire. Plus we will build primitive shelters and practice our knot tying skills. After you’ve mastered each of these skills, you’ll put them to the test with your peers to overcome a series of challenges together. We will end the day with some prep work for the overnight camp out the following week.
Friday, October 27-Saturday October 28
Back by popular demand is our end of semester overnight camping experience at the ELC. We’ll test our outdoor skills as we set up camp, build a fire, cook together and more. And, it wouldn’t be a true camping celebration without campfire songs and s’mores roasting. Camping gear is available to borrow for this experience, please contact us ahead of time if you need to borrow any gear.
