Discovery Adventures are a hybrid of our traditional Discovery Camp and our Expeditions. We adapt our camp spirit for 'on-the-road' adventures while developing outdoor living and leadership skills. We will be base-camping in small groups in exciting locations across Colorado and keeping the adventure alive with challenge hikes, adventure days, and more.

What is Base Camping?
Base camping refers to when we are sleeping in an established campground next to or near our van. Base camping allows us to set up tents and a semi-permanent kitchen in one location which serves as a jumping-off point for multiple adventure activities. When we are base camping, we are only carrying with us what we need for a day’s adventure. Base camping often means access to pit toilets or even bathrooms with running potable water. Campers will sleep in tents in small single-gender groups depending on the size of the tent. We will do our best to accommodate tent-mate requests, but we can not guarantee them.
Campers will eat a hot breakfast and dinner prepared by KSS staff at the campsite. We will typically pack lunches in the morning and enjoy our lunch out on our adventures. We will provide ingredients to meet the needs of any dietary restriction noted in registration paperwork.
All of our Discovery Adventures staff go through comprehensive camp training in order to deliver safe and exceptional programs. All Discovery Adventures, have been background checked, hold a Wilderness First Aid certification at minimum, and have gone through extensive risk management training.

Campers earn beads for everything they do at camp, this way campers leave with a necklace full of achievements and memories.
Our campfires are all about coming together with songs, skits, and s’mores to get campers excited and comfortable on their first night of camp.
Earth Treks are all about exploring the natural world around us and diving into curriculum through fun experiments and activities.
Campers will push themselves outside of their comfort zones on difficult hikes in beautiful locations.
We close every day at camp around the flame of a candle where we reflect on our days and form a safe community to have powerful conversations.
Each session campers have the opportunity to show their skills in our end of the week talent show.
