About Rockies Rock

At Get Outdoors Leadville! we believe day camp is about more than just having fun together outside. It’s also about developing a life-long love of nature, challenging yourself to try new activities and grow your skills, developing and strengthening friendships, living a healthy active lifestyle, and learning about yourself and your passions along the way. And, yes, we do have a lot of fun outside together in the process, too! At Rockies Rock Adventure Camp we do all this and more!

The teamwork, outdoor confidence and technical skills we help develop are truly life skills for our youth. We teach kids to mountain bike, to fish, to swim, to climb, to hike and responsibly recreate in myriad ways, and ultimately, to challenge themselves and expand their passions and self-reliance. We value and celebrate the crew skills practiced in our local schools: Perserverance, Compassion, Craftsmanship, Respect, Responsibility, Curiosity, Collaboration.

Through our Connecting to Nature Curriculum, all campers receive lessons on environmental stewardship, geology, wetlands and watersheds, forest ecology and habitats, peoples and land use, connecting to the natural world, and practicing conservation in our everyday lives.


2021 Session Dates!

Camp will occur between Monday, June 28th and Thursday, August 5th. Camp is divided into three 2-week sessions as follows:

Session 1: June 28 – July 8

Session 2: July 12 – July 22

Session 3: July 26 – Aug 5


2021 Tuition!

Cost per 2-week session includes optional bus transportation, morning snack and lunch, 1 camp T-shirt per summer, and accident insurance for all participants . There are 3 tuition levels for in-county Lake County campers, and 1 option for out-of-county campers. Monthly payment plans are available for no additional cost! A $10 (in-county)  or $50 (out-of-county) non-refundable deposit is required per camper per session to reserve a camper’s spot. If you have an outstanding balance with GOL! we will also require that 50% of your balance be paid at the time of enrollment, in addition to the deposit.

Note: It is important to us that cost is not a barrier to participation – no camper will be turned away because of cost! To discuss this, or any enrollment issue, please call Tim Best: 719.293.0445 or For Spanish email Cisco Tharp at

Reduced and minimum tution qualification is SUGGESTION only. We ask that each family choose the highest tuition rate that they can afford to support access to Rockies Rock for many years to come. We offer monthly payment plans with no interest, and custom tuition levels if desired. For example, you may be able to afford more than one level but less than the next.

There are two ways for a camper to qualify for “In-County” tuition:

1) A camper is enrolled in Lake County School District;

2) The primary residence of a camper’s legal guardian is within Lake County
