Activities

Orientation: On the first day, campers will be organized into small groups with counselors. Each group will participate in biking and running activities as well as 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. 

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 at 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.

Hiking: Snowbird has miles of terrain dotted with wildflowers, wildlife and history. Campers can explore at their level and learn about the unique nature of Little Cottonwood Canyon.

Other Activities: Learning to use a compass, geocaching, team-building initiatives and Snowbird's summer activities are among the 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.

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.
