Our Great School Escapes take place on Poudre School District school-out days and are available for students in grades K-5. Each Great School Escape runs 8:30am-3:30pm. The cost is $25 per child for members or $50 per child for non-members. Please note that the price for Great School Escapes has increased effective Fall 2017.

Pick up and drop off for all Great School Escapes will take place at our East Drake site, please click here for directions. In case of cold weather, we may transport students to the CSU main campus to use an indoor space. Parents will be informed in advance of any off-site field trips. Please note that if the weather forecast is favorable, we will spend the entire day at the East Drake site and most of the day will be spent outside.

Fall 2017: Naturalist Champions

During our Great School Escapes this fall, see if you have the knowledge and skills to be a Naturalist Champion! You’ll be put on a team with other kids your age and, after creating a team name and flag, you’ll face a series of challenges related to the day’s topic. You’ll need to work together to overcome obstacles and use your knowledge of the natural world to earn points. Put your naturalist skills to the test and see if you have what it takes to be a Naturalist Champion!


Thursday, October 19 and Friday, October 20: Adaptations and Habitats

You’ll need to get into the mind of an animal in order to be a Naturalist Champion for these programs! We’ll take a look at the wildlife at the ELC, where they live and how they survive. Please note that programming will be different Thursday and Friday, but the two days will build on each other.

Note: This program is now full. Please email us at elc@csuelc.org or call us at (970) 491-1661 if you would like to be added to the wait list.
