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.
