ACES Adventure Week | One (overnight)
Are you ready to take your adventuring to new heights and experience the wilderness in a whole new way with ACES educators? You will learn the skills of orienteering, how to use a map and compass, participate in team building activities, and take special trips to the wild places around Aspen while learning about the local plants and wildlife. Then, you’ll go on an overnight camping experience planned by you! That’s right, a big part of this ACES Adventure Week is learning how to plan your own outdoor adventures.
Mon-Tuesday: 9:30am – 3:30pm at Hallam Lake
Wednesday: meet at Hallam Lake parking lot at 10am ready for the overnight
Thursday: back at Hallam Lake parking lot at 12pm
Kids will need their own sleeping bag and pad, essential clothes for the overnight. Some kids will bring their own tents to share. ACES provides healthy, kid-friendly dinner and breakfast. Overnight details and gear questions will be worked out at the beginning of the week.
