The first day will campers will be organized into small groups with counselors. Each group will participate in biking and running activities and drills to orient campers and ensure compatibility of groups. These activities are designed for fun and skill building so we prepare the campers and set them up for optimal success the rest of the week. 

Mountain Biking
Each group will participate in mountain bike skills building activities and trail riding; destination and trail use will depend on skill and desire of campers. Please note: We do NOT provide mountain bikes. See additional notes regarding appropriate mountain bikes and gear for the camp.

Running Skills
Campers will participate in basic and trail running skills and drills designed to educate and assess skill level for hiking activities. These will be ‘game’ focused in nature and help campers get to know each other.

Swimming Skills
Swimming skill activities will include swim skill games and drills in the Cliff Lodge pool.

Rock Climbing
Campers will learn the basics of sport climbing on our local climbing venues. These are graduated in nature. Our coaches are experienced climbers and guides.

Snowbird has miles and miles of wonderful terrain dotted with wildflowers, wildlife, and history. Campers will explore at thier level and learn about the unique nature of Little Cottonwood Canyon.

Other Activities
Swimming, learning to use a compass, geocaching, Snowbird's summer activities, and team-building initiatives are among the additional activities campers may participate in.

Team Challenge
Friday will wrap with a combined competition that will offer campers the chance to demonstrate performance in a series of challenge=based activities. The competition will be individualized for each group. Parents are welcome to join us for the afternoon festivities if they desire.

Activities may vary due to weather and skill levels. Campers will be in groups of like ages; activities and coaching will be provided in smaller groups.
