We Welcome Your Application to Join Us!

We build each of our groups with care, keeping the groups small (no more than twelve students), and paying close attention to age, grade, gender, and the mix of hometowns and schools. Our goal is to put together great groups — groups where nice kids thrive in a supportive, wholesome, and caring environment. Please note: availability as shown is based on students traveling without a friend; if your child is interested in traveling with a friend, please call our office for availability.

Rocky Mountain Adventure

Hiking, climbing, and rafting in the Colorado Rockies!

The Rockies are big and beautiful — a great place to explore, make new friends, and have fun.

Huge and snowcapped, the Rockies stretch from north to south as far as the eye can see. What a place for an adventure! Hiking and climbing and rafting, stories and laughter and smiles. Join us for our introductory trip in the Rockies — it’s a great way to begin what is sure to become a lifelong love of these great American mountains.

Our approach is simple: take a great group of kids (and keep the group small — no more than 12), add two terrific Overland leaders (there to guide you, teach you, encourage you, and support you), and go to a beautiful place (the Rocky Mountains). Once there, get out on the trail for hiking and adventure. And every day, keep the focus on having fun and making friends.

Rocky Mountain Adventure offers two spectacular weeks out West. The trip is perfectly paced: start with day hikes, then add in an introduction to climbing. Finally, celebrate the end of two weeks out West with rafting. Day hikes at Overland are just about the best way to explore the mountains: there’s a leader at the front and at the rear, we’re on well-marked trails in well-known areas, and we stop — a lot! — for water and snacks, to rest, and to take in amazing views. Plus, when we’re hiking, it’s all talking and stories, all songs and fun. When we’re rock climbing or rafting, we always work with professionals, who teach us new skills while ensuring we have fun.

As with every Overland trip, you’ll be in the capable, caring hands of two wonderful Overland leaders. We call them leaders, but they’re much more than that: they’re mentors, role models, and friends. They’re having as much fun as you… even as they care for you every step of the way.

When you head home, you’ll take some of the Rockies with you. These mountains will be a part of you—we know they will. And you’ll be back—we know that, too. Rocky Mountain Adventure offers the chance to see the West with an enthusiastic and adventurous group guided by two caring, capable Overland leaders. All of the trip’s activities have been thoughtfully planned to suit 5th and 6th graders — it’s a great way to experience Overland.

Good Things to Know. The group is always small — no more than 12 students — and we always have carefully chosen and thoroughly prepared leaders. The itinerary is crafted to provide just the right mix of activities — the goal is to have every student love their Overland experience. The camping is in private campgrounds and state and national parks, all of which offer full facilities, including hot showers. Meals are wholesome, nutritious, and varied… and they’re fun group projects with input from everyone and lots of guidance from the leaders. Getting to and from the trip is a breeze: there are excellent flight options into Denver, and we provide supervision on arrival and departure so that travel days go smoothly.
