Men in the Mountains: Boys Leadership Adventure (overnight)
Join us for ACES’ first all boys wilderness leadership backpacking adventure! This week-long program aims to inspire young men to challenge themselves, learn about the natural world and each other, and have fun! Participants will venture into the mountains and embark on a three-night backpacking trip of discovery, leadership, and personal challenge. Participants will learn skills to help them become more confident in the wilderness, make new friends, and create their own adventures in the mountains of the Roaring Fork Valley.
Participants must have prior camping experience and should feel comfortable living in the outdoor environment for the week.
Monday: 9:30am – 3:30pm at Hallam Lake
Tuesday: Meet at the Hallam Lake parking lot at 10am with all your camping gear
Friday: Return to the Hallam Lake parking lot at 12pm.
