This summer, Summit Land Conservancy is hosting seven week-long summer camps (including two Little Explorers camps that are new this year!) that will be jam-packed with outdoor adventure! If your child loves nature, this is the experience they’ve been looking for. Campers will have a chance to experience a unique combination of structured outdoor recreation adventures and free “nature play” in local open spaces. This program focuses on teaching natural and cultural history on the open spaces that make Park City special. Children will actively engage in learning ecology, botany, biology, wildlife identification, local history, and other topics outside of the traditional classroom setting. They will also learn the importance of stewardship, and what it means to be a junior land conservator!

Outdoor Explorers Camps (7-12 years old)

MOUNTAIN BIKE MONDAY: Hop on two wheels and ride the expansive trails of Round Valley, one of Park City’s greatest protected open spaces!

  • Please note that campers will need to supply their own mountain bike (with working gears), helmet, and any other desired safety equipment.

TRAIL TREKKING TUESDAY: Oh, the places you can go by foot! Explore the ecosystems of Rob’s Trail, and learn more about the protected property Enclave at Cedar Draw.

WEBER RIVER WEDNESDAY: Hop on a raft with All Seasons Adventures and take a tour of the Weber River. Learn about the local ranching history of Summit County, see the protected properties Fawcett and Pyper Tracey Ranches, and learn more about one of Utah’s most important fresh water resources!

THRILL SEEKER THURSDAY: Test your agility, balance, coordination and problem solving skills on the Utah Olympic Park Discovery Course! After mastering this thrilling experience, get your hands dirty while learning the nitty gritty about growing sustainable food at Summit Community Gardens!

FULL SAIL FRIDAY: All hands on deck! Let the wind take your sails on the Jordanelle Reservoir and learn the basics of manning your own vessel from the pros at Park City Sailing.
