COVID 19 & Youth Education Program Guidelines

See updates on Colorado Mountain Club's Youth Education Program as it adjusts to new state & local orders as directed by governement officials and public health departments.



Established in 1999, the Colorado Mountain Club’s Youth Education Program (YEP) ignites a connection to the outdoors for Colorado youth, by providing opportunities for active learning through experiential and adventure education. 


YEP inspires the next generation of leaders, recreationalists, and environmental stewards by fostering enthusiastic, self-aware learners who engage in their community and strive toward both collaborative and independent goals.

Find the adventure that's right for you:


Looking for an adventure of a lifetime? Whether your child is new to the outdoors, or already a savvy veteran, we have courses that are right for you!

Looking for opportunities for your school or group? We offer everything from school visits in our Bouldering Bus, to science lessons, nature hikes. and more!

Join us for an outing with the whole family! From rock climbing, to hiking and snowshoeing, we have adventures for all skill levels and ages!
